Great views over the river

Pros: The venue was exactly as described by the website photos!
Cons: Not a thing
Location: N/A
Even though we only stayed one night, everything was just perfect, from our initial welcome from Ken and Marie to our breakfast the next day. The location was in a quiet area of town with great views over the river - the house itself was beautifully presented but still had a great vibe - we were very impressed with the service provided.

First timers

This was the first time we have stayed at a Bed & Breakfast & after that experience, we wouldn't hesitate to do it again. A lovely place, lovely hosts & other guests from Canada & Australia were very friendly. An all around fantastic experience.
