B & B Perfection
Liz at Lancaster is located in the cute suburb Craighall Park which has several restaurants and markets within walking distance. My husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel all over the world and we can say that Liz, the owner of the B & B has thought of every detail you could possibly desire in your room. She has several rooms varying in size all of which offer extreme privacy, great comfort, and perfect style. This place is perfect for any discerning traveler.
