Good Hotel Guide Review

Chris and Bettina Black’s ‘friendly’ guest house, in a ‘surprisingly large and pretty garden’, is just what the doctor ordered, say regular Guide readers in 2016. The stone-built Victorian villa (once a doctor’s home) stands on a street leading into the small town. Inside, there are ‘sizeable’ lounges with maps, books and guides to borrow, and neat, homely bedrooms varying in size and style. ‘We had the largest bedroom, with an enormous four-poster bed, two easy chairs, a padded bench, adequate storage space; a spa bath in the good-sized bathroom. The bay window faced the street, but double glazing kept noise out.’ A ‘good’ dinner may be ‘well cooked’ by Chris Black, by arrangement; vegetarians and other guests on a special diet are catered for ‘with the same gusto’ as meat eaters. Wake to a choice of cooked dishes at breakfast, with home-made jams and marmalades, perhaps a garden rhubarb and plum compote. ‘Pleasant’ hosts who are ‘anxious to help in any way’, the Blacks offer advice for distillery visits, castle visits and tours, nature and heritage trails, and many outdoor activities. They’ll ensure you’re well prepared, too – ask about a packed lunch or a gourmet picnic hamper to take with you. Lounge (log fire), TV room, reading room, conservatory dining room (‘muted’ background music). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Drying facilities. Computer for guests’ use. Garden (pond). Children over 12 and dogs (£7.50; bedding not provided) welcomed. Resident cats. 5 bedrooms (1 on ground floor). Per person B&B £54–£65 (high season), £46-£55 (low season. Closed Dec–Jan.

Guest comments

'After our successful visit last year we returned and on this occasion had the suite. This had a pleasant sitting room, a good-sized bedroom with a six-foot bed and adequate storage space. The bathroom was also spacious with its own window. All was well-appointed.We ate dinner one night which was well done. We had to select our menu choices in advance which could be awkward for those touring about without a smartphone. The Blacks were welcoming and friendly as before and we continue to recommend ' - Elspeth and John Gibbon - May, 2017
