The hostess was Anna Raman and was sweet as could be. Breakfast of assorted dry cereals, fresh fruit, croissants, toast, yogurt, juice, tea, and coffee was served at our requested time each morning. Coffee, tea, and cookies are available throughout the day. The B&B is on a main bus route that ran 7 days a week and was one of the night buses, as well.
I stayed at 18 Eildon Street for three nights in mid-April. I had the 1st floor room with a view of the garden. The bathroom and bedroom were immaculately clean. The bed was made daily. The decor was tasteful with antique furniture, including a wardrove with lots of interesting nooks and crannies. The Victorian architecture of the room had classic high ceilings and large windows, with wooded shutters. The only drawback of the room was that it did not have a lock to secure the room when you left and was a bit drafty, but that is to be expected in old houses with high ceilings.
The room had it's own bathroom, although it wasn't ensuite. The bathroom was modern and VERY clean. Towels and basic toiletries were provided. Towels will be changed out if left on the floor. Mine were used throughout the stay. The first three days, the hot water was plentiful. I would have pruned before running out. However, the last day, it merely drizzled out of the faucet and was luke warm. The toilet had to be flushed twice to force toilet paper down. I'm not sure how it would handle more "substantial objects."
The toilet issue annoyed me. I'm sure the shower on day four was a fluke. Anna was lovely. Don't forget a travel alarm and voltage converter (I did). When walking down the lane, I hope you have the opportunity to meet the neighbor ladies Dachshund named Pipsqueek. I can't think of a better name for a British wiener dog!
I would definitely stay again.
