I contacted a few B&Bs and hotels for accommodations for the two weeks over the New Year. I stayed at Holiday Inn Express the first week, really nice place but it was far away from the town center. Of all the B&Bs I contacted, only Maggie at Leonards Croft Hotel replied and offered me a room. Leonards Croft Hotel is a very nice well kept old home. I did not expect first class at a cost of 40 pound a night with breakfast included. My room number 3 was at the top of the stairs and above the dining room. Some reviews mention banging doors and people making noise but that's life, still I did not hear anything unusual or annoying. My phone worked well and their Internet was fast enough. They even waited until I came downstairs to turn on the radio in the dining room. The breakfast was fine and the coffee was good. There's plenty of free parking in their lot and the grand house is the best looking on the street. The rear garden are very well kept up and I bet in the summer a really nice area to sit in and relax. At the end of the day, Leonards Croft Hotel is close to town center, offers a good value for the price and is a place I would consider staying again. I told Maggie about the disturbing price variations in the cab services and she recommended Kaminskis Taxis Ltd and for the rest of my trip I used them. They arrived on time and changed a fair price.
