Lacking in little extras

The bed and breakfast is very well reviewed however most agree the little extras are lacking such as the complimentary tea and cake on arrival was little coffee shop biscuits, tinned fruit at breakfast instead of fresh and cheap syrups instead of jams and marmalades.


Rooms are small and dated

The rooms have been reviewed as having dated decor and being on the small size as well as the bathrooms, taking into consideration one room shares a bathroom with other guests.
