The Burlington House
'This place goes from strength to strength,' states Jim Barker. 'They're continually upgrading and offer impressive levels of comfort.' The breakfast is fantastic, too, he adds. 'Great aromas of freshly made granola and baked breads waft through the house.' Just watch out for the two per cent surcharge if you're paying with a credit card.
