We stayed for just one night, but loved it. we were in the Cromwell room, as the back so no street noise and because it's a 14th century building and therefore has a quirky layout, no noise (water cisterns, door bangin etc) from the other two rooms either. Lovely blue and white decor with a huge bay window overlooking the churchyard. The bedroom and bathroom were both spotlessly clean, with hand soap,shower gel, shampoo and conditioner all provided. Plenty of tea/coffee and hot chocolate provided in the room and when we asked if we could have some Earl Grey they gave us six teabags and told us to let them know if we needed more! The floor was a bit uneaven and creaky, as was the bed, but it all addd to the quaintness and charm of the place. TV, wifi, haridryer, everything you need. Very friendly staff too. The rooms are over a coffee shop/bar, CJ's, which offers tapas style food. Unfortunately we were there on a Monday and they close at 7.00pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we didn't get to sample the food, but we did have time to sit out on the roof level decking (smokers to the left of you, non-smokers to the right was much appreciated), with a glass of wine surrounded by olive trees in pots, grapevines overhead, and again with views over the churchyard. A very peaceful and tranquil setting. The full english breakfast served down in CJ's the next morning was fine, nothing special, but tasty enough and for £65 B & B, very acceptable. We did have one issue which was that the toilet cistern took an age, and I mean an age to fill, so could only be used once every couple of hours, but my husband had a look and fixed it fairly easily so we didn't mention it. Hopefully, it's still working well! This place is certainly worth staying at if ever you're in the area.
