Nominated one of the top 20 in the country? I don't know who thought of that!! This B and B was a big disappointment, mainly because it wasn't very clean!! Some old towels had been left in our bathroom, together with our new folded towels. The sink was a bit dirty. The floor had not been hoovered. And to cap it all, the tablecloth at breakfast the first day was stained with congealed egg. And this was the same the next morning!!! Surely one changes the tablecloth daily, and certainly checks it for stains. The towels we had been provided with were rather old, and certainly not thick and fluffy, which you would expect from a 5 star B&B. The master key had been left in our lock one afternoon, so that anybody might have walked in off the street and stolen stuff from our room. In short, no attention to detail. This place has definitely gone off the boil!! I'd hate foreign visitors to think that this is the standard of accommodation we consider to be adequate, let alone 5 star!!

Good Points: Can't think of any to be honest, apart from adequate parking, as I had a large hired van with me. The couple who run it to be honest were nice enough and tried to be helpfull but , maybe we're fussy, but we've stayed in a lot bigger and better guest houses. Bad Points: Room very small with old fashioned sink in the corner. (not in toilet as you would expect) Shower ridiculously small. Breakfast a shared table. I much prefer my own separate table. Can't imagine why this place had a five star rating. Breakfast was ok although I prefer to have a menu rather than having to spell out what you want in front of everybody.Rather embarrasing but the fruit was nice. General review: Not a bad old couple and I don't mean to be a moning old so and so but my wife and I travel about a bit with our business and stay in everything from the marriott hotels to b&b all over the country. This was expensive for what you got and I don't rate it as 5 star.
