The additional bed was a put-you-up with no headboard which was uncomfortable. However, the experience as a whole was pleasant. The breakfast was lovely and the choice was... More

The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is outstanding with buffet options and also a full hot breakfast cooked to order. Location excellent with everything within walking distance. I had a single room which could do with refurbishment. While the room overall was clean and the bed comfortable, the carpet was sufficiently dirty it required replacing. When the... More

This is a well-situated B and B walking distance to the abbey, baths and shopping. We chose the most reasonably priced rooms, which were on the top floor and quite a hike up. We had a nice view out back, though our sons' view out front was obstructed by the edifice. Rooms were decently sized and comfortable. We had a... More
