I stayed at this B&B for three nights by myself in early February as a getaway from life's hussle and bussle. I really enjoyed myself and found it an over all good choice. With some small changes I wold happily come back and also recommend this to friends. It is conveniently located close to both bus stop and the train station and within easy walking distance to the small town.
The house is amazing and my room was nice, big and very clean, with amazing views, but also a bit on the bare side and could have done with a bit more love. There was no mirror and being a woman I felt I missed being able to check myself before going out. However, the biggest problem was the bed. Although a nice size, it was well past it use by date.
The breakfast had a good variety but when asked if I wanted anything from the menu it was done in a way that made me feel that I would be putting them out if I'd said yes.
There was a lounge that more felt like a random collection of left overs of furniture and games. Unfortunately it was mostly closed but I found a very nice sofa to spend a few hours on.
This gave me the opportunity to get to know the owner and her son who were very helpful and nice people. It's a shame they didn't show this side in their service. Maybe working in a similar role I pick up on these things more easily than others, but I do feel that the only thing standing in the way of this B&B getting a very high score is showing that nice, friendly, smiling, welcoming attitude through out the service, and maybe some new beds.
I'm giving this B&B a three star rating with an extra half star for the wonderful house. With some more love put in to their service I would easily add one more star and with some updated rooms and better bed this would be a five star to me.
