On arrival we were welcomed with a lovely freshly percolated coffee and a slice of cake - a lovely way to start our break. The room we stayed in was a beautiful double en-suite, with king size bed, gorgeous views with large windows and a lovely bathroom. The room was also very spacious with plenty of wardrobe space.
The B&B was immaculate to what I saw, from the gorgeously decorated bed, the clean mirrors, clean bathrooms and fresh towels daily.
On our first night, we did unfortunately come across an issue connecting to the wifi, but this to be fair was no ones fault and unfortunately just one of those things. However it did mean we couldn't browse the web, but the hosts did offer us the use of their landline to make calls, something we could've used wifi for potentially. This therefore meant that wifi wasn't so important. In addition my pillows were not the greatest, but again this is a personal choice thing. The bed was however lovely.
The shower in the bathroom was a lovely power shower. There were even added extras like little tie-up bags for I believe sanitary towels, which was a nice touch. The toilet if I was to change anything was too much of a tight squeeze for me, as it was right beside the shower cubicle, but then I need to lose weight, so it's probably explained. One thing I did notice and wasn't overly keen on however was (albeit a nice gesture) the shower gel was half/pre used in the shower. This is probably more a personal thing and not a massive issue, as you could take your own, but still worth noting. Perhaps providing little bottles of shampoo etc may be better, but to balance probably more expensive.
The breakfast was a variety of cereals if required, tea or percolated coffee, orange juice, full welsh breakfast consisting of: 2 sausages, bacon, 1 egg (cooked to your liking such as scrambled, poached), 2 half tomatoes cooked, beans, mushrooms and fried potatoes. There was also brown or white toast. It was lovely and well cooked with the poached egg just how I like an egg.
The cost per night for us was £60.00, which to be fair with the views, quality bedroom, soft lovely bed and views was a great price. All in all, a very nice bed & breakfast and even allowed us to depart after 10am.
