I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful hospitality of Gatekeepers B&B. Keith and Pauline are wonderful hosts with very adept perception about how much or how little interaction you're on board for. I had a wonderful 2 night stay and was treated with plenty of wonderful conversation, knowledge, and laughter about Bright. Not only so, but the breakfast...

We stayed 2 nights while attending the Spartan event in Bright. A short stroll to the town centre via the main road, the rail trail or the river. Keith was an excellent host, from the beverages in the fridge to the snacks and chocies to the delicious breakfast. Very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

What better place to stay with friends in Bright than with Keith and Pauline? There were five of us doing the 4 Peaks challenge and Keith was up early each day cooking breakfast to make sure we had enough fuel to keep us walking. We used the bbq for a few nights and Keith didn't complain about all the extra...

There is not one thing that Keith does not think of (that I can find anyway). Extremely clean and very well appointed, and most importantly the hosts are very welcoming. We had not done the B&B thing much before, but if they are all like this I would probably not ever go to a hotel!
