"The couple who run the guest house were friendly and clearly committed to providing a super stay. The standard of accommodation is first class throughout. We stayed in a beautiful en-suite room, accessed through a gothic arched door. The room had a huge king-sized bed, TV, a large selection of towels, and a hot drinks tray. The standard of decoration was of a high standard – especially in the bathroom, which had a super power shower. Breakfast at Rivendell must be one of the best I have had at a guest house – and better than many starred hotels I’d stayed at!"
