This B&B is located at the bottom of the hill above a funky shop right in the middle of town. Parking can be a challenge. I paid 2 E to park for 2 hours whilst I got settled into the B&B. I later found a car park behind the building which was 2 E for the day Mon-Sun. Anthony was very agreeable and gave me a walking map of the town with lots of recommendations for food, walks, live music, etc. There are food choices minutes from the place - Thai, Italian and Irish - recommend Sean's Pub for a few pints!
My room was small (but it was for a single), very clean, great duvet. There was a heater in the room but I didn't need it. Newer shower, nice and warm, water pressure was ok. The place is a huge maze of rooms but has so much charm!. Breakfast was nice - lots of selections cheese, yogurt, bread, cereal, etc. Since the B&B is on a busy street, noise can be an issue if you stay there over a weekend.
