We expected a 5 star B&B to be very pleasant, if a little homely - but this far exceeded expectations.
On arrival we were greeted warmly and professionally, shown the public rooms and told how to contact staff at any time. The receptionist insisted on helping with the bags and showed us to a room on the 2nd floor. It would not have shamed a boutique hotel. The oak furnishings were complemented by rich wallpaper and fabrics. The tiny but well-presented ensuite shower room had 'White Company' toiletries, and the coffee tray included Viennese Fingers (my favourite!)
There was a pleasant lounge, with a licensed bar - the Sauvignon Blanc was very quaffable and, at about £7 for two glasses, very affordable too.
The bedroom was very warm, but the window opened smoothly, and the double bed gave a comfortable night's sleep. The breakfast room was very smart with white linen and a buffet of cereals, fruit and juices. The cheerful efficient staff served a tasty and filling English breakfast, and the vegetarian option at an adjacent table also looked very good. All in all, the best value for money in a very long time. We will be back!!
