Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Warm and hospitable, with a ready laugh’, Sheila Griffin welcomes guests to her ‘characterful’, ‘attractive’ B&B in an ‘engaging’ town. ‘It’s like staying with friends,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016, who were greeted by ‘gossipy’ chickens, among ‘masses of tulips and budding flowers’, in the ‘much-loved’ garden. The cherry-red front door opens on to a ‘lived-in’ space, with ‘a sense of lightness and warmth throughout’: find ‘art on the walls, framed old photographs, collections of crockery, fascinating books, a lovely reading nook, some quite dangerous sofas – you sink into them and don’t want to leave’. Traditionally styled bedrooms are upstairs. ‘Ours was large and well lit, with a compact shower in the clean, well-equipped bathroom; a window seat overlooked the street (virtually no noise at night). A large fitted wardrobe had shelves and fixed hangers; the supply of lovely biscuits was replenished daily.’ Wake to a ‘marvellous’ breakfast: an ‘enormous’ buffet; ‘delicious’ cooked dishes (ordered the night before). ‘I’d requested a vegan option, and got gorgeous potato pancakes with wild garlic and fat field mushrooms; home-made preserves accompanied fresh-off-the-griddle fruit scones.’
