1.35km from The Crown HotelThis lovely guest house is somewhere that you know that the hosts have done everything they can to cater for their guests’ needs and comfort. It is a delightful period arts and crafts-style house which is lovingly cared for by its owners. And they clearly take just as much trouble to care for their guests. I chose to come to this dog-friendly guest house so that Lucy The Labrador could accompany me and right from our arrival from the railway station, only about 5 convenient minutes walk away, we felt at home in our charming bedroom. Everything was absolutely excellent - a very comfortable bed, a highly generous collection of drinks and biscuits in the room beside the kettle, perfect lighting, a modern bathroom with a bath (I’m a bath person rather than a shower person) with shower over the bath (for shower people) with wonderfully hot, instantly available water; a pile of good, nicely-scented towels; delightful decor making the room cosy and comfortable, and all wrapped up in a perfectly quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The breakfast room was also full of character and kitted out with a fridge for out of hours drinks and a microwave for those fancying an out of hours packaged meal which could be bought from a large conveniently situated Morrison’s nearby (opposite the station). Conveniently situated also, for those whose canine companion needs to exercise, is a fair sized park only about 100 - 200 yards away. And so to THE breakfast. Quite superb. Delicious sausage and bacon from the butcher’s in Ledbury which Lucy and I have previously judged to be the best when we took part in the Ludlow Food Festival sausage walk, exquisitely tasty grilled mushroom and tomato (how many places do you know that serve these in a joy-less watery-flavoured state?), egg nicely done in the manner of the guest’s choice - I can vouch for the scrambled - and beans. There are also of course the usual cereals, fine coffee and orange juice that one would expect. And rather good toast (how many places does one visit where even the toast is not too enjoyable?). The meal is served freshly cooked and beautifully hot (not for No 21 any of these half dried-out but cold buffet breakfasts). A great meal that sets you up for the day and might make you feel that not a lot of lunch is required. From arrival to departure, Lucy and I were made to feel very welcome and everyone working there whom we met were kind and made us most welcome. Thank you. Not just dog friendly but human friendly too. Lucy and I were so happy with our 2 nights at No 21 that we intend to return soon to Hereford but only if there is a room available at this wonderful guest house. A stay at No 21 represents excellent value and I can not see why anyone, whether or not accompanied by a dog, would not have a happy stay at No 21.
