Very good 8.0
We enjoyed our stay a The Telegraph House it is centrally located. However breakfast is not included in the price and we had to go to another hotel or cafe for breakfast. The restaurant is open for dinner and we had one of our best meals there.

Lovely inn and friendly staff
The inn was beautiful; so quaint. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was traveling with my sister and we requested the room with two twins. It was a small room but sweet. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this inn. They serve dinner as well, which was amazing. We enjoyed the lobster because they did all the work! Loved our desserts, too. A great place.

Right in the Middle!
We were only there for one night. The Manager was extremely helpful regarding the area - what to see, do, where to eat and what was closed. All very helpful without even asking. The cottage was clean and warm but a little tired. Overall a good stay.
