Used this bed and breakfast as it was fairly near to the Doncaster racecourse. Lizzy was there to great us and show us to our lovely bedroom which had a king size bed, 2 wardrobes, chests of drawers and still loads of space, very airy and calming in cream and pale green with a nice bay window to look out of. Cooked English breakfast with help yourself to toast and cereals. Lizzie noticed that I had used the small packet of special k, so bought a big packet for me to use the following day, so thoughtful. To describe Lizzie is a little difficult to explain, cheerful, chatty a little eccentric but very thoughtful and caring, funny with her tales of when she had been a singer on the circuit. Yes she had a stuffed rat by the front door and witches on chairs,a soft toy frog, dog, teddy and monkey (which somehow managed to be wearing my slippers one night) all in the room. She was a breath of fresh air and as mad as a hatter sometimes but we loved it and would stay there again. We did notice a lady of the night around but she was soon moved on by police who appeared to be watching the area very frequently but as this did not interfere with us it was not a problem. Loved the town centre and Cosmos restaurant. Lizzie allowed people to take back food and use her dining room facilities if they wanted to.
