Chose this b & b as it was close to a show we were attending. Arrived early just to check we knew where we were going and were thrilled to be given our room even though it was 2 hours earlier than we were expecting to have access. The room was well decorated and spotlessly clean, with lots of tea and coffee rather than just the one cup each you usually find. Also impressed that we would have access at any time in the evening no matter how late we returned. A comfortable stay, friendly staff and a really impressive breakfast in the morning. The only suggestion I would make is that maybe a spare blanket is available in the room - the night we stayed the weather turned and it was a little chilly. Luckily we had a spare bed in the room so pinched a cover from there! Minor detail though, would definitely stay again.
