No negatives at all!
Location of the B & B and the size of our rooms with a very comfortable 4 poster bed. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast excellent.
the unique charm of a house built in 1635
there seems to be a problem with the doorlocks
Friendly welcoming staff Breakfast (yum!) Four poster bedroom with separate living area and en-suite bathroom Great facilities - Free wi-fi
Low pressure shower difficult to control temperature
very friendly staff/owners. breakfast was very good plus the fact we were issued with a front door key to come and go as we please.
lack of car parking facility
Liked watching the duck and ducklings in the garden. Privacy. Enjoyed the breakfast. Very quaint and interesting decor.
Parking on the street from 8am and maximum stay time only one hour. Noise and smells from kitchen of neighbouring restaurant. Noise from the kitchen of the tea house early.
The sitting room was of a very generous size and comfortable
Excellent location Large rooms Good breakfast
Bathroom needs updating No onsite parking.
friendly and helpful good atmosphere very comfortable great coffee great breakfast
wireless signal could be better
The exuberant and humorous hospitality. The quirky and historical nature of the building. The HUGE lounge room that was part of our suite (for two people). The four-poster bed. Derek's scones.
Ventilation of the room was difficult as there were significant noises and smells (smoke & cooking smells) when the windows were open.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable stay.
Layout of accommodation. Welcome from owners.
More a suite than a room, with a real four-poster bed as well!
I had to leave a day early because of work!
Spacious and comfortable room with lots of character Lovely, friendly staff who looked after us Great breakfast included in cost
Beautiful suite with a lovely bedroom and four poster bed. Friendly, helpful staff gave us information on local attractions and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. Cheap long stay parking just a little further up the road. They serve a great full English breakfast
Hard to find any faults really but if I had to pick something I would say that the bathroom could do with a bit of updating and the water pressure in the shower was a bit low but that really is as bad as it gets. Would be more than happy to stay there again.
The staff were very helpful, welcoming and pleasant. It was a very comfortable stay and you felt like it was your own home. I would certainly stay again.
The shower/bath. I had difficulty in controlling the water temperature and the bath would have taken ages to fill up. I do appreciate it's a very old building and the plumbing could be a problem. Otherwise a fantastic experience.
This place has character and charm. The staff were very friendly and they made us feel at home. The best scones that I have ever tried by Derek and the best espresso by Debbie. Breakfast was a dream as well!! It was amazing and I recommended!!! Easy to get to, with a cheap parking nearby and good connections to local amenities.
I did not like that I just booked it for two nights!!! :( I am defenitely coming back....
Very welcoming establishment and they couldn't do enough for us including fresh milk for tea and coffee. Excellent breakfast. Will be coming back
