We stopped here just after Christmas 2009 for two nights. Our room was on the ground floor next to the front door - other members of our party were also on the ground floor across the hall.
This is a wonderful, homely Bed & Breakfast inn. The owners, Val and Wayne go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. In the rooms there is a vast amount of information and advice on where to go/what to do in the local area. The breakfasts are amazing. In addition to the usual toast, fruit, cereal - Wayne makes something different everyday - we had different omelettes on both days which we delicious.
The location is excellent - whilst in a quiet residential area, it's just a short 2 min walk to the shops, restaurants, pubs etc. The decor is lovely - all rooms are set out and decorated in a different style. The en-suite bathrooms are a very good size ... especially for a B & B.
Most definitely the best B & B we've stayed in.... anywhere in the world!
