This is our second stay at the Old Post Office and we were delighted to find that the quality of accomodation, facilities and the food is just as good as it was last time.

Response from The Old Post Office:
Hello Paul - Thank you for your great review. Pauline and I spent a lot of time to try and create a 'home from home' experience with as good a bed and breakfast as we could when we first started in 2014. The real trick is to maintain those standards, once established. To get your review some 42 months after your first stay with your positive comments means so much to us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your second stay as much as the first and thank you for your perspective. Cheers. K&P
