Positive Reviews

The staff welcomes you in

The owner at Old Posting Inn welcomes you at check in and cannot do enough for you during your stay. You'll find lots of printed materials at registration which highlight the many popular tourist destinations in the area and the staff can easily point the way to local restaurants, bars and shops.

The guest rooms have recently been refurbished

The recently refurbished guest rooms at this non-smoking B&B are spotlessly clean. The comfortable beds made up with crisp white linens and plenty of fluffy towels make for a comfortable stay.

The food is delicious

With lots of choices available at breakfast, lunch and dinner and a menu featuring locally sourced produce, the food here is fresh and plentiful. The chef is happy to accommodate special dietary needs and everything that comes out of the kitchen is fresh and delicious.

Negative Reviews

The WiFi is spotty

The Internet connection in the guest rooms at Old Posting House can be slow and spotty which could be problematic if you are travelling on business, want to get an email out in a hurry or use your devices on demand.

You may have to wait for service

The dining establishments at this hotel can get really busy, especially on weekends and during peak travel season, which means you may have to wait for service and your food. But the good news is that once the food arrives, you'll find that it was worth the wait.

Things can get noisy

Because this bed and breakfast is centrally located, you can expect a modicum of traffic noise, especially at night and on the weekends. If you are looking for a quieter stay, be sure to request a room at the rear of the property.
