Gifford House is very aristocratic. Victorian style, everything in a perfect shape. This House for adult, well-mannered people. David and Margaret created nice atmosphere and good conditions, they pay attention to every small thing and do really hard work : perfectly clean

Loved this guest house. After a long day of travel this was a welcoming site for sure. Very friendly. Clean. Wonderful breakfast. The neighborhood is charming with a delightful restaurant just blocks away, the Salisbury Arms. Highly recommend
