First the good things: an excellent (double) shower in a clean, bright bathroom, carved out of a corner of the room.
Then the less-good things: the room - a very low, wooden framed bed made getting in and out of bed a struggle for older people. The bed frame was also very wide, with the mattress sunk within it, and therefore it took up more room than a divan of the same mattress size would have done - an important consideration when space was compromised owing to the incursion of the bathroom into the room; the pillows were very poor quality, lumpy and unsupportive; other furniture was basic and minimal, with the hairdryer fixed within the wardrobe (not particularly easy to use); the wardrobe itself did not allow for hanging anything longer than a shirt.
The welcome was friendly but perhaps could not be described as warm.
Breakfast was adequate but unremarkable - good sausage and well-cooked egg but one half of a grilled tomato each was a bit frugal. No choice of bread for toast was offered - a very basic white-sliced was provided. Everything else came individually packaged: cereals, sugars, sauces, jams, butter etc. and all the tea and coffee making facilities in the room, too.
While our stay was perfectly adequate, there was nothing that make this a B&B to return to - it fulfils its brief as stated on the website, but there are no frills and, for £70 a night, frankly we would have got a better deal in a Travelodge (cheaper, anyway!).
