Came to Sunnyvale House for my Auntie’s wedding yesterday. Judith was so welcoming, offering us a fresh pot of milk so we could have a late night cup of tea. Immediately you knew it was going to be a nice stay as the room was spotless, everything you needed was there. Lovely bathroom, comfy bed. Breakfast was so nice. Honestly can’t say enough nice things about this Bed and Breakfast. Will definitely be back.

On our last day of holiday we left grandsons pillow, we had said we were going to the swimming baths nearby. They brought the pillow to us, that’s service. The B&B had everything we could wish for, the breakfast was great and plentiful. My 9 year old grandson said that we must give them a 5 star rating, He not wrong.

Lovely place with great people hosting who are willing to accommodate and direct with anything. They aren’t in your face but they’re brilliant 😊. The rooms were checked daily, very clean, fresh towels if needed. Highly recommended 😊

We received a warm and friendly welcome from Mike and he even carried our bags up to our room. Good location, just a short walk to the Pavilion area and down into town, not too much of a struggle getting back up the hill. Our room was a decent size with full size single beds, nice pillows and duvets - spotlessly clean - the bathroom actually sparkled! Very useful information pack and nice coffee and biscuits. Everything very organised - colour coded key rings, useful if you come back late and have had a few :-) Didn't meet Judith until breakfast time and she too was very welcoming. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. Both were helpful with directions and suggestions and made our stay very comfortable. Would definitely recommend.
