We loved this B&B it was clean, comfortable and totally wonderful. There were the three of us and the room was perfect for our needs and beds super comfy. It is a short walk in to town and the owners were more than happy to help orientate us to the tourist attractions in the area. The breakfast was plentiful and yummy. I would recommend this B&B very very highly.

We booked this guest house purely on the reviews and photographs which all looked good..
Unfourunatley it was not as we expected, when we arrived the lobby was full with the owners family and a film crew which made our entrance very squeezed and stressfull after a long journey.
The room at first looked clean and tidy, there were a small double and 2 single beds which were comfortable if not small.
We were not impressed to find several items of clothing from the prevoius guests in the drawers, some after shave and some old tissues under the wardrobe.
The bathroom was mostly clean although very cramped with the sloping ceilings which made shaving and washing a chore, very few shelves meant most of our toiletries wre stored on the floor.
The shower was powerful and warm but the gasket on the shower door had seen better days and was brown/green with mould.
In the morning our we had the smells of breakfast before any one else as our room was directly over the kitchen.
Breakfast was ok although very cramped in a small conservatory which was freezing cold and huge combwebs above.
We had booked the room for 2 nights but could only manage 1 night and moved into a local hotel for the 2nd night, all in all quite an eye opener and one we will not repeat in a hurry..

Perhaps this review seems rather harsh but the fact that we booked from previous reviews made us want to tell the truth for furture guests.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

When you arrived there was a camera crew who was just leaving, this was a one off and not something you see every day.

All the beds in the guesthouse are of standard size, none of the beds are small or extra small. You did bring my attention to some paired socks that had been left in a draw, which I removed immediately and apologised at the time that this had been missed. I can only apologise again.

Unfortunately we cannot stop the smell of food cooking from downstairs rising upstairs, usually this is one of the reasons why people choose guesthouse accommodation as it has a very homely feel to the place and gets everyone excited to the treats available downstairs. In this instance it is not practicable to alter this scenario.

For breakfast we offer full English OR Eggs Benedict OR Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs OR Chilli mushrooms in crème fraiche; along side a wide variety of cereals, freshly baked pastries, fruit juices, croissants, yogurts, tea, coffee and toast. You all seemed really happy with this selection on the day and I would have wished if there was something else you would have liked, we might have been able to accommodate should you have mentioned it.

Its is also a shame that when you checked out all you said was that you had changed your plans as you were travelling all over the country and this was the reason you had decided to check-out. In hindsight it may have been quite possible to make your stay more comfortable had we known at the time. I can only apologise that we did not meet the standard that you were expecting as we like to please every single guest that comes to stay with us.

Our Apologies

Natasha

Lovely mid size guest house with pleasant host. Can walk into town. Great breakfast with a few unusual items - you don't usually see Eggs Benedict on a B&B menu. We had a lovely room for 3 people with comfy beds and a modern bathroom. Had to watch out for the sloped ceilings!
They even have parking (bit tight) for 6 cars.

This friendly B&B is on the edge of town but just an easy short walk to the town centre. The parking was a bit awkward and the rooms rather cramped but apart from that the B&B is excellent. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the facilities well above average. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was really good. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Wonderful little B&B run by such lovely & friendly people. So welcoming!
Excellent value for money here, only a 5 minute walk from the town centre & a car park to leave your car too!
I found the rooms spotlessly clean, comfortable & welcoming. I find that some reviewers on here have been rediculously petty - I don't see the problem with drying towels in a conservatory (rediculous).
Absolute 10/10 here, would definitely go again & would confidently recommend! Stay here! You will not be disapointed.
And just one last point, the breakfast was beautiful & the bed was so comfortable!

I had an excellent 2 nights stay at this B and B. Conveniently situated for walking into Stratford. Free parking on drive. Lovely friendly staff. Good bedroom with en-suite walk in wet room which was great.

Thank you for your response. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, not least because I, myself, was away at the beginning of September and needed to rely on my staff to provide seamless care in my absence.
