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.

Great Guest House
We’ve just returned from a great 3 nights stay for our wedding anniversary, & I can’t recommend the Dorstan highly enough. Check in is usually at 2pm, but as our train got in at 12. O’clock Richard told us that we were welcome to arrive then. He gave us plenty of information as to which buses to catch to get us there @ the prices, & also where we could get a taxi from. When we arrived he was waiting for us & was very informative on places to visit & also gave us plenty of advice on where to eat for our anniversary meal. He showed us 2 rooms on the ground floor & let us choose whichever one we wanted. We chose room 2, which was a smashing room with a great ensuite with a very good shower. You have a form in your room that you fill in every day for your choice of breakfast for the next morning, there’s a great variety & you can mix & match to suit your requirements. The breakfast was excellent & very hot & a great set up for a busy day of sightseeing, the bus stop is just a short walk away with plenty of buses throughout the day & a day ticket is only £4 each (though make sure you have the correct amount as the driver doesn’t have any change). It only takes 10 to 15 minutes to get into the centre, depending on traffic. Overall Richard & the rest of the team are very pleasant & helpful & the Dorstan is a lovely clean hotel. Highly Recommended.
