Excellent place to stay.

4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Above Bayards, how can you not like the fabulous view from that large bay window. The facilities were very good and the location, being right next to the town centre and the river side was very handy. Must admit we spent a lot of time just sitting watching the river with a glass of wine. We would love to return and our daughter, who visited us, will also be looking to book for next summer. Cheers, Dave & Jackie
