After driving some distance, we were about to do the easy thing and check into a Hampton Inn. However, this was a couple of miles out of town and so, luckily, decided to stay in accommodation right in town. This is a Victorian house, decorated and furnished in the same style, with attention to detail, run by a charming woman and her husband, in a quiet street. It was absolutely spotlessly clean and breakfast was delicious. Home-made quiche, with well browned, crunchy toast (at last!) The rate was very good value for money. The owner was knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area and offerred some good sight seeing advise. If I ever returned to this area I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I read some of the "bad" reviews and if the owners are picky about who stay here, then - good - it keeps the standards up!
