“A gem – perfect for ‘The Ashes’ venue” – Accommodation
Stayed here whilst attending a wedding at the nearby Ashes. Great B&B. Very friendly hosts. They allowed us an early check-in at 10.30ish so we could get ready for the wedding at 12noon following our journey. They also took us to the venue and picked us up from the Ashes in the evening and a time that we requested.
The rooms were lovely and clean, great decor and ours looked to be nearly furbished. Beds were super comfy and en-suite shower room was clean. Tea/Coffee making facs, biscuits in room and hairdryer were all welcome touches. My only minor niggle is that black out curtains would have been nice so I didn’t wake up so early, however thats just because I am used to these at home.
On arrival you were asked to fill out what you want for breakfast and at what time. Great full english, cooked to exactly how you request. Good selection of cereals, yoghurts, juices as well and I even tried an oatcake which was delicious.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. Esp if you are a guest at the Ashes. Other guests at the wedding ended up paying more than us, were further away from the Ashes and had to pay taxi fare to/from hotel to venue so I couldn’t recommend this place enough. A gem!
