Interaction with guests
At The Friendly Chat we let you make the choices - we live upstairs, so are readily available if you have any questions about the facilities we offer. We have lived in the local area for over 25 years, so have lots of information we can share about places to eat, local attractions and how to get around. Having travelled a lot ourselves, we realise you can make the most of your time by tapping into local knowledge. As travellers ourselves, we also realise it is nice to be left alone if that is your choice. We're always available for a friendly chat if you choose!
