We were 3 Indian couples with kids and booked through hotels.com not realizing that we are booking in to a b & b and not a hotel. However, we saw it the moment we entered the house. So, please use this place only if you want to use this as B & B. The owners - couple - Mr. And...

Just had a couple of nights b&b and what a great find. The service was second to none, excellent standard of rooms, well furnished, and quality linen used. Great breakfast, and nothing was to much trouble. Parking on street outside free all day if you wait for a space. You won't be disappointed.

Very good breakfasts, nice to have good table linen. The second floor room I had was well appointed if a bit small. Wifi good and free. There is only on-street parking, which could cause problems with handling luggage.
