"Absolutely excellent"
I was under the impression, because of the name that this B & B was a pub, and arrived very late in the evening. when Alma and Brian were ready for bed. However, they could not have been more welcoming and riendly. The room was small but very clean and comfortable, with a well appointed ensuite bathroom. I enjoyed my breakfast too. I have no hesitation in recommending the Cricketers- as long as you are not expecting a drink at the (non-existent) bar before retiring! Read less
Likes:
The welcome, the comfortable bed and the spotless cleanliness of the room.
Dislikes:
None
Response from The Cricketers:
Thank you Simon for taking the time to write such a great review. It was no problem accommodating your late check-in. Our property has an interesting history and was once a pub, albeit a hundred years ago. However there are a few pubs locally that are more than happy to provide a wonderful pint of real ale and a bite to eat.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your room and breakfast and hope to see you again.
Best wishes Alma and Brian.

"Friendly hosts who go out of their way to help."
Brian and Alma were super friendly and welcoming. Brian drove us to and from the pub for our meal out and they even let us stay an extra night when our other plans fell through which meant we imposed on their Christmas. They didn’t seem to mind and even provided us with mince pies and Christmas cake!! Read less

Very kind!Breakfast was just right, and the home made marmalade was delicious! Read less

"Nicest B&B we have ever stayed at!"
We had a beautiful night stay here after a long flight. The room and bed was stunning, the bathroom was super clean, modern and the house itself was lovely. Brian and Alana made us feel welcome, made calls for us to arrange dinner despite the late hour, then made us the most beautiful breakfast the next morning! Would stay again in a heartbeat. Read less
