“The place to stay in Cromwell”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The best B&B that we have ever stayed at. Every little detail had been thought about and taken care of.

The room (the Marian Room) was sumptously furnished with a very comfortable bed, thick carpet and a fabulous bathroom with a deep, deep bath.

The hosts Fred and Truish were marvellous and nothing was too much trouble. They have complementary drinks and nibbles in the evening, and it was great to spend time chatting to them and getting all the inside information on what to see and do in the area. In the evening, they provided a turn down service (including putting on the electric blanket), so the room was perfectly cozy when we were ready to go to sleep.

They made reservations for dinner, and even drove us to and from the restaurant so that we could enjoy a drink.

The breakfasts in the morning were perfectly cooked. We stayed in one night for dinner, and had a gorgeous meal.

Room Tip: Email Fred and Trish directly

Reviewed 26 April 2010

This delightful B&B was booked for us as a stopover on our Rail-trail cycling tour from Cromwell to Middlemarch. Trish and Fred made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. The superbly appointed bedrooms with ensuites are upstairs via a seperate entrance from the hosts quarters. In the hallway off the bedrooms was a casual reading / relaxing area, which also housed a well appointed "wall kitchen", providing a selection of teas, coffees and delicious home made breads and preserves.
Dinner was a gourmet experience and followed pre dinner drinks. This was the only B&B where we were able to dine with our hosts which really added to the great experience. After our English breakfast, with freshly laid eggs, home preserves etc, Fred drove us to the cycle depot, after firstly showing us the local wineries.
A truly great start to our holiday.
