“Lovely owners, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We got there and the parking looked quite cramped, but no problem at all. Trish opened the door to us and was very friendly and welcoming, told us everything we needed to know and showed us to our room. This is very much a B&B rather than a hotel, and you do get to know the owners, who are the main staff you see; Trish and Pete are great hosts and you couldn't hope for better. They can tell you anything you need to know.

The room was great - very modern and clean, you feel at home. The bathroom was large and great,. There was a shower but no bath. The shower was excellent.

The food was also excellent - great selection of cereals and fruit, good toast, good full english. The breakfast is available from 8.30 to 9.30, which seemed short and early, but worked just fine - sometimes we didn't finish breakfast until 10am.

Town is a short-ish walk away, not too close and not too far. We walked in and once got a taxi.

There is free wi-fi, and it works really well on all floors.

It's a great place and we'd love to stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms appear to be different sizes, so maybe ask for a larger room.

Our room was beautifully designed and so clean you could eat off the floor (should you want to). Very friendly couple - would quite happily stay there again.

Room 7 was of a high standard and in my opinion better than some 5 star hotels that I have stayed in and spotlessly clean. Peter & Trish take real pride in their accommodation, standards and service and deserve their success. To sum up the Briarfields – Excellent accommodation Spotlessly Clean Management team that know how to provide customer service

we arrived a little early but had a warm greeting from the owner and that continued throughout our stay. The hotel was very clean and our room (and the rest of the hotel) was decorated to a high standard. There is nothing bad that i can say as it was all excellant. Breakfasts were lovely nothing was a problem for them to make. We will be definately recommend family and friends to stay there. Well done you deserve all the praise you get.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this fantastic B&B and felt the need to express to everyone just how wonderful it really is.

I have worked in the travel industry for over 11 years,travelling worldwide staying in many hotels and i can honestly say that the Briarfields really does tick all the boxes for a great breakaway.

From the moment we arrived the service was warm and friendly with a lovely homely feel about it.

The suite we stayed in was fantastic,spotless from floor to ceiling with a superb bathroom and extremely comfortable bed.

The breakfast was excellent, great choice with something for everyone,

Overall we loved it and highly recommend it.

This B&B was completely refurbished by new owners a couple of years ago and the property is now modern, comfortable, stylish and tastefully decorated. Hospitality is warm, breakfasts are good, the shower had plenty of pressure and there is free wifi.

We had to book late so only one suite was available, which would normally be more than we would choose to pay, but there was a three-nights-for-the-price-of-two offer on at the time so it made the price more reasonable.

The only downside was that off-street parking is limited and the property is on a busy main road so this could be a problem in high season.

Would definitely recommend to others and would return ourselves.
