"An adequate B&B"
The place felt rather empty (we didn't see any other guests, or evidence of any other guests) and our sense was that this was not a thriving B&B. Read less
Likes:
The B&B was in a reasonable location for the city centre.
Dislikes:
Our room aws at the front of the house which is located on a busy road and was quite noisy early in the morning. The breakfast was adequate but not particularly well cooked.
Response from Marlborough House:
I am sorry this is your view of the business however you could not be further from the truth, this is a thriving business and for that reason alone I find your comment ill informed and quite offensive. Being as you were the last guests to have breakfast of course the house looked empty, the other rooms had already eaten and left. This comment does not reflect your verbal comment that both you and your wife gave to me while we were moving your bike from the secure garden
