We also stayed here for my Birthday. It is a beautiful house and our room was very well appointed with a generous offering of full sized bottles of shampoos, soaps, shower gels etc. A warm welcome awaited us and we were immediately offered tea or coffee, which was freshly filtered and came complete with cake and biscuits - most welcome after a day of sightseeing. A telephone number was helpfully acquired for us as "no trouble at all". After sleeping surprisingly well, breakfast was extremely good with a wide selection of foods on offer from fruit to continental to full English, all served with cheerful, efficiency. All in all a very pleasant stay and we would not hesitate to recommend the Victorian Townhouse to others.
