Perfect boutique hotel

Possibly the best-run B&B I ever stayed at. The attention to detail is superb, very comfortable bed and excellent breakfast

Highly Recommend

We stayed at the Somerville in June and were warmly greeted by Grant who showed us to our Courtyard suite which was beautifully presented. The bathroom was nice and modern and the bed was very comfy. It had the look of a five star hotel. Breakfast was vast including a large array of fresh fruit. I would highly recommend staying there.
