We arrived in the beautiful town of Alnick and were greeted with a friendly, warm welcome from Tom and Audrey. We were given refreshments in the pretty, well kept garden with lots of information about local attractions and recommended eateries and a short tour of the B&B, which is immaculately presented throughout.
We booked the Green Room, which I have to say is more than worth the additional costs. The décor and presentation was spacious, luxurious and the large bay window over looking the garden made it light and airy.
Breakfast was of superb quality and the service second to none, nothing was too much trouble and they are marvellous hosts.
From Greycroft to the centre of Alnick is a pleasant stroll of no more than a few minutes and the castle/gardens are within walking distance.
My partner who is much more well travelled than I comments that this is the best B&B he has ever stayed in and far better than any hotel.
It is a pleasure to recommend Tom and Audrey at Greycroft and we look forward to staying with them again soon.
