The service definitely deserves 5 stars as the team is really great. The place is lovely. Certain walls are paper thin, so it can be noisy depending on neighbours. When we came across the owner, she didn't seem interested in saying hi or talking.

Comfortable, central bed and breakfast. They went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible - even making us take away toasted sandwiches when our plans suddenly changed and we had to leave before breakfast !

Breakfast time should be earlier in the morning - 7am is too late - most people need to be on the road by 7am in the morning and to leave without breakfast is not good & disappointing because you have paid for it.
