10/10 Exceptional

The hotel was very clean, cosy and comfortable! We enjoyed the time that we've spend there! Alan and Allison were very kind and friendly - they can provide very good tips about what you can visit in the city.

The bus stops right outside every few mins for easy transport into town center (about 2 miles away). Nearest pub for food/drink is about a 15 min walk away. Staff were lovely and very helpful and made us feel very welcome - would definitely stay here again!

Clean and comfortable B&B with good breakfast
Clean and comfortable B&B with good cooked to order breakfast and attentive hosts. Walking distance (25 mins +) to the city centre, also serviced by main bus routes with easy access to restaurants/cafes and located in a nice and safe area. I wouldn’t recommend for business the room I booked (single room) as it did not have a desk or a place to work and I had a two hour meeting sitting in bed in an uncomfortable position. There was electrical work during my stay which meant the Internet wasn’t working and I couldn’t charge my laptop but the hosts kept me informed and tried to rectify as soon as possible. Internet speed was ok, I think more charging points would have been beneficial. Check-in times are restricted, please check if you are arriving late (after 10 pm) as there is a surcharge. Free parking is available off-site, in adjacent streets to the B&B.
