“Quiet but still central. Friendly, clean and beautiful. A Gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2009

The House lies in a quiet residential road, one block away from a busy street where 5 or more different buses take you within 10 minutes to Prince Street. The place has a
beautiful interior with a warm pleasant atmosphere. The room and house were very spacious for British standards. Both are absolutely clean, with well maintained en-suite facilities, good and fast running warm water.

Breakfast is in a spacious common room with family atmosphere. Unlike the first critique on this site, we quite enjoyed this - having had nice chats with Canadian guests, a view into and beyond the kitchen where our host and grandma were cooking and folding the laundry in the distance. After all, this is what a classic Bed and Breakfast comes with. For those who find this too "common", (and I think that the hostess was well aware of the first reviewer's complaint) there was a new separate table installed in the adjoining room, seating another four to six guests.
The breakfast's final cup of tea we had outside on a pretty terrace with ornamental garden furniture, looking into to a lush garden - a great relaxing start into the day.

Our hostess was very pleasant, always willing to help and anxious to make sure that the visitors had all that they needed. We were there during Festival, so the price was high (60GBP per person), but in comparison, this was excellent value for money and we would not hesitate to choose No.45 again.

Nice building, friendly welcome. Clean room. Quiet location. Easy parking . There was a bath but no shower (should've asked, I suppose). Shaver light and one light bulb gone. No biscuits on hospitality tray. We wouldn't go back because breakfast (which was served at a communal table) consisited of portions so small they are served on a side-plate. My no-meat option consisted of scrambled eggs with two, tiny cherry tomatoes. Nothing else even offered. Shame because this could be a gem.
