Reviews for Bancroft B&B
A home from home.....warm welcome...great hostess and fantastic room. Breakfast more than good!
I found the service to be horrible and the treatment we received from the owner was really bad. She doesn't respect her clients privacy, she would sit there talking non stop while u having breakfast, her dogs follows guests to the rooms. She through away anything her guests forgets in their rooms without asking them. We were called thieves because the agency responsible for our bookings delayed payment. I would not recommend the B&B at all.
Fantastic homely service
Thank you Tina for a wonderful stay, exceptional hospitality, nothing was too much, and we felt very welcomed. Room was neat and clean, and well catered for. Breakfast was delicious. Our expectations were exceeded. Thank you.You will see us soon. Xxxx
Small and cosy, friendly host
A B&B that defies popular perception of the big home trying on hotel clothing. Bancroft's only 2 deceptions are that it is more elegant and classy than its pictures would suggest, secondly the hostess is possibly one of the most fascinating, worldly wise, and interesting people one can hope to meet anywhere nowadays. My kids were enthralled by her while my wife and I never felt more at home at the breakfast table that flowed over with tasty, healthy delights. The garden was breathtaking as was her knowledge of the local fauna and sights to visit.Thank You Tina. You and your son Ryan are truly wonderful people.
Thank you Tina. We had a lovely stay with you. You are a special and caring lady.
A place you can feel at home away from home
Friendly host. You can order dinner too. Wifi is terrible but that is the same for the whole area.
We had a lovely stay and felt most welcome and looked after.
Would recommend greatly! Tina was a superb, accomModating, warm and sincere hostess!
