Dorstan Guest House
Cracking stay.
Friendly place great breakfast with plenty of choice. Good transport links into the centre. It's not the Ritz but more than adequate for a couple of nights exploring. Will certainly consider using again if needing a place close to town.

Dorstan Guest House
A charming B&B offering good value for money.
A very charming B&B, in a good location, minutes away from the center by bus. The proprietor was friendly and helpful. The room was simple but well maintained. Serviced daily. Breakfast was good with a variety of options. Overall, excellent value for money. Only minus was unreliable WiFi on upper floors.
