Joan and Jack run a marvelous B&B in Alton, in the center of Jane Austen country. This lovely converted church features first class accommodations (with wonderful showers, heated towel racks, free wifi and beautiful decorations). Breakfast was a treat -- eggs from down the street and locally caught and prepared smoked salmon (along with other local items). Joan's passion for making her guests feel welcome is unparalleled. She was wonderful to converse with.
I was in the garden suite, which is located across from the main house with its own entrance. The suite was enormous, with a very comfortable bed, great lighting, an outstanding state-of-the-art shower, a frig, small sofa, comfy chair, and lovely decorations. The garden suite is a most relaxing and welcoming room.
I do hope to return to this area and hope to stay at this gracious establishment again.More
