Very welcoming reception when we arrived after a long drive. Checked in quickly and given a key and directions up to our room. The room was clean and tidy, and the decoration felt very 'homey'. We had a room at the front on the 2nd floor. There was no noise from the road outside but we had the windows closed. It may be noisier in the summer with the windows open but the room seemed to have an air con unit.
There was tea/coffee/biscuits in the room which were restocked every day. The bed was made every day while we were at breakfast. The bathroom was clean and the shower was massive! Twice the size of a normal shower.
There was free wifi which we connected to in the room - makes a change from having to sit in reception to get wifi signal!
The hostess was extremely nice to us throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very at home. Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order - fresh local ingredients too and definitely butchers sausages and bacon.
The location was a short walk from the town and the area felt very safe.
Small flat screen TV in the room gave access to plenty of freeview channels.
We had a lovely stay at this B&B - couldn't fault it on any aspect. Would definitely stay here again.
