No. 5 was a stopover for 1 night. We had the amazing little attic suite which we totally enjoyed (great view). There are no lifts and this was at the top of a lot of stairs - but that's how you stay young, right? Breakfast was excellent, the setting very charming. Location is great for walking around town, yet out...

It's about my 15th time here. Amazing service, friendly owners, beautifully decorated rooms, quality breakfasts (even kippers for the adventurous! ) and exquisite attention to detail means I will be back again. Soon. They really know the area, are on hand with relevant suggestions for things to do. Love this place.

Jane and Mary are so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is a feast and the rooms are spotless. Central location but in a quieter street so we had a great night's sleep. All in all excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
