AA's Bed & Breakfast Awards for 2013-2014

AA's Bed & Breakfast Awards for 2013-2014

Posted: 2nd June 2013

May 2013 - we were nominated for the friendliest B&B in Britain by the AA inspectors for 2013/14

We were shortlisted from over 2,600 AA inspected B&B’s in the country as standing out from the rest. We got to 'scrub up' and attended an award ceremony held at St Ermin's hotel in Westminster. A champagne reception followed by a 3 course meal was enjoyed by us both. Whilst in London we stayed the night and saw Les Miserables. Although we didn't win , we came away with a lovely engraved decanter and framed certificate and had a lovely day together, so who could have asked for more!!!

Its not just dogs that are welcome in our pet friendly lodge...
