“Ideally located Victorian B&B + a great host = a wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2008

The first time I tried to stay at the Beggar's Knap it was booked solid, but I managed to get a quiet double room on my second try. First, I have to say that the proprietor/host Mark is the best I've run across in the UK, where the standard for hospitality is already pretty high. He clearly takes an active interest in making sure guests are happy, and was very helpful in helping me figure out what to see, where to eat, etc. On top of the great hospitality, the B&B is ideally located in the heart of the town and is a 5-8 minute walk away from both train stations. There is off-street parking for guests with cars. The main sites in the city are all within easy walking distance, as are several restaurants and pubs. I saw other B&Bs as I walked around town, and I thought that the Beggar's Knap was the most conveniently located. Honestly, I really can't say enough about what a pleasant stay I had at the Beggar's Knap.

  • Liked — Hard to narrow down, but I'd say the location, the house, and the great host.
  • Disliked — Nothing
