Nothing too much trouble, great value B&B
We found the hosts very hospitable, friendly and made us feel very welcome. Moved their car to provide a parking spot for us. Breakfast was very good. Room was very clean and comfortable. Typical B&B decor, but recently painted and very clean. Great value. We would recommend and stay again.
