We recently stayed at The 25 Boutique B&B and had a wonderful time. With the recent Covid situation we were firstly made to feel at ease with all the additional measures that had been put into place to keep us and owners safe. It made our stay all the more relaxing. The room was on another level to some of the best hotels we have previously stayed in. The technology was second to none with no expense spared. The hosts were welcoming, friendly and very accommodating. All the little extras in the room including a complimentary beverage, and home cooked bakes were delightful. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, we wish we were staying longer to enjoy it even more. As we left the extra little travel treats were also a pleasant surprise, We throughly understand why it has been voted the best B&B in the world and look forward to returning again in the not too distant future,

We so enjoyed our 2 night stay. Everything was perfect. Such attention to detail and all the lovely touches from start to finish we’re much appreciated. It certainly lived up to its name as best in world. Warm and comfortable and everything immaculately clean. Andy and Julian were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Remembered our names and what we ordered at breakfast when we all ordered different. All arrived at same time and cooked to perfection. Delicious too. Felt very safe with COVID measures in place. Would definitely go again. Thank you both.

Hi Maxine, Thanks for your review. We're so pleased you had a great time at The 25. We always aim to bring everything out at once with tables of four. It's a pet hate of ours when someone is left waiting without food. Looking forward to seeing you all again. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.

We cannot recommend The 25 highly enough for a relaxing weekend. Julian and Andy really have thought of everything to ensure comfort. COVID-19 secure, welcoming, gorgeous decor, amazing food plus all the little details such as iPad, homemade cakes and coffee machine. Loads of ideas if things to locally and good restaurants. If you can you must go!

The 25 B&B is a great place to stay a piece of art, class and style. Definitely the best we have ever stayed in. Andy and Julian were and are wonderful hosts, friendly and very professional. The Torre Suite room was superb, outstanding design, spotlessly clean and very comfortable together with all mod cons you can think of. The breakfasts were excellent, I enjoyed the homemade yogurt and Andy's granola. The little daily extras (homemade cakes) were also lovely and add that extra special touch. We could not have wished for more and we certainly would not hesitate to recommend The 25 B&B to others. We look forward to our next stay. Thanks again for making it a great couple of nights. Richard & Yoanna

Having read the Covid policy before arriving we knew what to expect and Andy made us welcome whilst explaining how things were going to work around the virus. The reception area was inviting and spotlessly clean with hand sanitiser and wipes for surfaces. We were given our room key and met Patsy the dog quickly before she went back into the office. While we unpacked we were delivered of a drink of our choice and some wonderful homemade brownies. The suite - Watcombe - was lovely. Little touches like a small jar of sweets and a complimentary mini bar, as we had booked as VIP. Guests, which included some nuts and chocolate too. We couldn’t want for anything; tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, water, espresso machine, three TVs, an iPad and Alexa controlled lighting. ( Which I have been informed me now need at home!) We didn’t need to take a hair dryer or straighteners that usually weigh us down and there were toiletries and lovely towels available for us. I recommend trying the dressing gowns, so comfortable and available to purchase if you feel the need. Breakfast was wonderful. A wide range of choices, all served on request in a light and comfortable breakfast room. Even though it rained all the time we were there, it wasn’t a big issue due to the lovely accommodation and indoor attractions close by. I almost forgot the bed. Super King Size and incredibly comfortable. I’m also informed we need some of the pillows for home as well! The shower! Lovely. Easy to use with a tv in case you want to watch while washing. :) Nothing was too much trouble for Andy and Julian at The25 and we are already planning our next visit. I could keep writing but you’ll see from the other reviews that this B&B is practically perfect. You won’t be disappointed.

Hi Amanda, Gosh, you must have written your review the second you got home. Thanks so much for all the very kind comments and we're so glad you both had a great stay, despite the weather not being brilliant. At least there were a few dry and sunny spells. We're pleased you enjoyed the Watcombe Suite and it's many features including the TV in the shower and the perks of joining our VIP Guest list and booking direct via our own website. We look forward to seeing you both again in 2021. Make sure you get booked in as soon as you can as we're filling up fast. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.
