"This really is a fantastic B & B. Very friendly staff who were very polite and attentive. The room (DeQuincey room) was a good size, very clean, had a comfortable bed and a very good shower room. Breakfast was absolutely faultless, very fresh and served quickly. Car parking directly outside the property is an added bonus. We will definitely be back!" Adam
