Mom and I stayed here in Sept 2011 after we had a bad experience at a nearby B&B.I couldnt remember the name of this lovely home from home B&B,hence the lateness of the review. We had lovely long chats with John at the breakfast table! John was so friendly and gave us a cup of tea on our arrival..nice touch.Room was clean and overlooked the Ruins and a section of the Cathedral in its grounds. Shared bathroom but clean and sharing proved not a problem.A minute or two walk from the High Street,so fantastic location.John even helped carry Mom's suitcase to the bus stop. A sweet guy!We loved our stay and after our upsetting experience at nearby B&B,John made us feel welcome and at home, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
