The four of us - 2 adults, 2 kids - stayed at the Shirley B&B boxing day/ night in Room 2, the family room. The room was spotless and a pleasure to walk into. It is on the small side, but for a night's stay, it had everything we needed. Nice shower, warm and toasty clean room, good wifi and...

Have spent the weekend here and am delighted to say what a great place to stay! The room was decorated perfectly and spotlessly clean. We received a very warm welcome and breakfast on both mornings was faultless. We found the location just what we were looking for, close to the main shopping area and the Christmas Market and close to...

Stayed here for one night this week. Check in was pleasant, room was small but clean and tidy. Comfy bed for a good nights sleep, didn't hear a thing !! Well furnished place, WiFi signal was strong so worked fine. My first booking here, but would come back whenever in area. Paid £30 for the night, great value.

This hotel/b&b is advertised as a 4 star but it most definitely isn't. It's more of a 2 or 3 star accommodation and should be advertised as such. Here are some of things that would put me off staying again: 1) The reception area stinks of wet dog when you come in. 2) There is very limited parking and so...

B&Bs are all about attention to detail and aside from a slightly wiffy smell from the toilet that was there for my whole stay (room number 1 - hence 4 stars instead of 5) this place is very well managed. The manager is courteous and polite, very efficient, and the English breakfast is perfectly cooked. They were also very helpful...
