The photos are flattering. This is bach accommodation in a nice house: rather basic, a bit juvenile, a bit short on facilities. It is a roomy suite that can take up to six people but there is no proper bathroom! A toilet, a separate shower and a tiny kitchenette/laundry in lieu of a real private bathroom. Also, beware: B&B should read B&b, as the breakfast is very minimal — cornflakes, yogurt and a tiny bit of canned fruit — not even a toaster. Overall too expensive for what’s on offer. There should be a distinction between B&B (where a reasonably substantial breakfast is expected) and accommodation where breakfast is merely included (and thus could mean anything). This place is a little sad as a result: could do with a makeover, a hint of luxury, and a decent breakfast to justify the weight of a capital B. If you’re looking for a romantic weekend, look elsewhere.
