I can not recommend this place enough.
We were welcomed by cheery Steve and sat us down with a cup of tea and a cake, Steve talked us through the place. Steve and Elaine are great, like a couple of friends you haven't seen in a while!
After booking a small double (which was on the small side but still a lovely little room) Steve told us the executive double was available which had recently appeared on "the hotel inspector" to show what an excellent b&b room should look like and believe me it is excellent. The word "spotless" is bandied about a lot but I'm serious not a speck of dirt was encountered on our stay.
The price was about on par with what you'd expect from a good b&b but the little extras you get from Steve and Elaine make booking of this place a no brainer. We had mentioned briefly during our welcome cuppa that it was my wife's birthday that weekend and thought nothing more of it... When we got downstairs for our breakfast the next morning (which was superb btw) Steve had happy birthday banners up and was playing happy birthday to my wife which embarrassed the hell out of her but in a good way.... They even left her a little pressie on her breakfast table! The bathrobes, the sweets, the quirky little fixtures throughout etc etc etc.... The little extras are brilliant.
Thank you so much for our stay guys it made our weekend and can't wait to see you again!
