We chose this b and b as it was very close to a wedding we were attending. It was unfortunate that our room wasn't ready at the time we had previously arranged, however we were still able to get changed in there and it was then cleaned whilst we were out. This minor issue was more than made up for by the fact that we didn't make it downstairs on time for breakfast (we misread the info leaflet), but we were still offered a full breakfast before leaving.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful and our room was clean and comfortable with free wifi, hot drink making facillities and a television. It was fairly small (with a double and a single bed) but we managed fine. The only downside was that staying in the summer, we had to sleep with the window open and therefore had a bit of traffic notise. It didn't really bother us though and We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
