This is a good value for money B & B clean and tidy very friendly we found no faults and it served its purpose will use again if we need to. Only fault was the shower in the bathroom was a bit jaded but still clean.

Room Tip: We had a room at the top with a few stairs not good on a bad knee

although the lady of the house seemed very confused that someone was on the doorstep and had booked a room there, it was a pleasant stay overall. nice breakfast, room comfortable and tidy. nothing special, but fine for the money.

£39 for a single room wasn't cheap. Room and breakfast adequate. However landlady most unfriendly. No conversation at all at breakfast and I was alone in dining room. In fact I felt extremely uncomfortable. Got the impression she didn't want to be there.
On departing no sign of management.

A smile costs nothing. Maybe it was a bad day. Wouldn't stay again although everything else was ok (just).

Good, comfortable room. It represented very good value for money and was much better than the 4 star hotel I stayed at recently. The owners were very friendly and helpful, offering useful advice about the local area. Shall be booking a room there again next month. Very close to town, it took me just a few minutes to walk.
