We are about five minutes walk from the local hospital and ten to the station near Warwick town centre.

Lovely room with everything needed for a short stay. Zary looks after you very well. I’m looking forward to going back sometime.
Fantastic hosts, room was spot on and breakfast lovely, we even came away with some delicious home made jam!
We were welcomed with a hot drink made for us straight away and settled in very personably. Derrick and Zary were keen to make us feel relaxed in their home, without being intrusive. The place was very clean, had two armchairs and fresh milk was provided for the tea & coffee in the room.
The breakfast was very generous and offered lots of variety - fresh fruit salad, cereals, eggs, toast.
Only 20 minutes walk into the town centre.
Very nice area and they provided off-street parking for us too.
They even phoned us (before we were a mile away) when we left a phone charger behind.
The accommodations with Derrick and Zary are excellent: bedroom with a sitting space, plenty of storage and a very nice ensuite. It was like having our own private place. The breakfast that Zary provided each morning was a wonderful combination of protein and carbohydrates. Kept us going on daily outings. Friendly couple with advice when we asked them.
Derrick & Zary were lovely hosts. They made us feel very welcome. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely recommend them and would stay there again.
Nous avons été reçu comme des rois. le petit déjeuner était impressionnant, l'accueil et les adresses d'un bon restaurant ont été magiques . Ce sont des personnes très chaleureuses, sachant recevoir et partager : que du bonheur !!!
clean comfortable and Derrick and Zary are very helpful and accommodating
