We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the stay greatly. There's something about this B&B that makes it really charming - perhaps it's the cobbled street called Broughton Place, the quiet neighbourhood, the room window view of the greeneries; perhaps it's the presentation of the breakfast; perhaps it's the delicious homemade granola, smooth-tasting yogurt, silky scrambled eggs, aromatic tea, tender portobello mushroom; perhaps it's the down comforter, the elegant dressing table, the hot tea/coffee in the room; and perhaps it's the literature books on the shelf... You can feel the character of the owner (Wendy) in many small details, and you can tell that she really cares to make it an enjoyable stay for the guests.
The next morning after coming home, I found myself craving for the breakfast at Broughton Place. Two days afterwards, I had decided to get the ingredients so I can attempt to replicate the breakfast there. I will go back again, even just for the breakfast.
