Having read such glowing reviews I had no hesitation in booking myself and my wife into Rockvale b&b.
Good points are that the two ladies that own it are lovely, a friendly and prompt greeting upon arrival. It is very clean.
We paid £70 for one night, if I had paid £45/£50 I would have considered it appropriate.
We were in an attic room. Luckily I am only 5ft10", if you are 6ft, don't book this room! Gents would have difficulty using the loo without hitting their head.
No shower facilities in this room either. The breakfast we opted for was Haddock in poached egg, this was disappointing as it was swimming in milk, not the way I have had it in many other hotels. The bread for the toast seemed to be value bread, not home made or from a bakers and looking around the rather crowded breakfast room other options such as full English looked like value sausages etc, not nice one's from butchers the price should warrant. The breakfast slot is 45 mins 8.30-9.15 so not great if you want to get out early to explore.
The decor is like staying in an elderly aunt or grandparents house.
The view and position on the house are fantastic, but at hotel room prices it's not somewhere we would consider staying at again.
