My sister my dog and I stayed here on the 4th and 5th of June. We loved the tranquillity of the place and how the owners made us feel very relaxed and welcome especially as I had my dog with me. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean. To dine at Rolfs is a must. We will be back hopefully...

Had a beautiful meal here tonight, it was an experience from beginning to end. Had mussels to start which we're bursting with flavour, followed by Flambé Scallops which were melt in your mouth. Dessert was Creme Brûlée which was divine. Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough, loved every minute of it!!

We, my wife and young rescue Westie, stayed here back in July 2013 and were so exceptionally received and catered for it left an imprint such that we continued to return and have stayed with this graceful family many times since.

Beautifully restored country house and gardens. Peaceful, welcoming and comfortable with great food - all only a short walk down a quite country lane to the pretty village. Excellent value and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed there about 3 years ago. Beautiful stone buildings with lots of little courtyards & beautiful grounds. Peaceful & quiet with beautiful, most comfortable rooms with the very best linens. The dinner was superb and breakfast just as good, you have to see the spread to believe it. If you cannot stay then at least go for a meal....

Great place to relax, rooms are quaint and cosy.The food at Rolfs is excellent and service is spot on. You can tell that the owner is passiontate about good/local ingredients. Baltimore is a lovely place to escape, have a few beers and relax. Really enjoyed my stay here and can't wait to go back.

Rolfs is a great little spot! Just out of town, nestled up the back of a quiet little country road. Food and wine was fabulous, as was the service. Rooms were nice and clean. Beautiful white bed linen. All in all a great stay. Would visit again in a heartbeat! No where but Rolfs in Baltimore!

This is a very pleasant place to stay for a weekend. The location seems to be further from Baltimore than it actually is (it's about half a km from the village, up a quiet country road). The accommodation is clean, if a little basic, with a good en suite and an excellent shower. Breakfast was very nice, with a good...

We had a wonderful stay in Rolfs Guesthouse in July this year. The only downside was the weather. We just missed 6 weeks of beautiful weather which was a little unfortunate. Rolfs Guesthouse was a lovely place to stay. The location is beautiful, even through th raindrops. We only had breakfast so can't comment on dinner. The breakfast itself was...
