Having previously stayed at more traditional b&b's, Barclay House immediately appeared modern, contemporary and light. We arrived a little early, but staff went out of their way to rush the sorting of our room so we could settle in. When we got into our suite - the Haidaway ( which has its own private entrance at the side of the house) - we were amazed! Much bigger than the usual b&b room (but then you are paying a little more here), our room was more like an apartment. And a keen eye had paid meticulous attention to little details like contemporary Native American art, teamed with fashionable modern prints on the curtains and decor. And it helped that we had a private jacuzzi. And the champagne upon arrival was also very agreeable!
Cooked breakfasts were also very good - and they were very accomodating with my egg yolk allegy, making sure to prepare me egg-white variations, very kindly.
JJ, his sister - and in fact all staff - were friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for my girlfriend and I during our stay.
Would throughly recommend - particularly to young couples wanting a romantic getaway.
