Stayed here for one night with my wife and our three children. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts. The bedrooms were immaculate, tastefully decorated and absolutely spotless. Bathrooms were excellent also. Breakfast was first class as was the level of service throughout our short stay. Highly recommended.

Stayed here with our 2 adult sons at the beginning of the UK segment of our recent holiday. We didn't know what to expect, having never stayed in a B & B before. Very comfortable, quiet room, easy and convenient off-street parking for our hire-car. Friendly owners steered us to the nearby pub 'The Northey' for dinner (which was also... More

It was cosy but comfortable. It had a nice large bathroom, tea/coffee and free, reliable... More

What a fantastic little find!!! Stayed here for 2 nights, very personal and welcoming! Room 4 was a little noisy but nothing we didn't expect when we checked in with it being close to the road. Have recommended to everyone we know :) thank you!!

What a find, we stayed here only for one night before we foolishly went up the road to an awful hotel. We had one double room and one twin room and they were both gorgeous. I booked through an online site and stipulated that we needed a walk in shower as my husband has MS. I was impressed when the... More

Great location firstly - just off the Main Street in Box. Parking is a little tough and restricted but adequate. Fran and mike are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. The rooms are immaculate, comfy bed, great bathrooms (modern), good breakfast.

I stayed at Lorne House for just one night on business, but if I am ever back in the vicinity I will certainly choose to stay here again. I travel a lot and can say this is as good as any B&B I have experienced. The room, furnishings, bed and linen, lighting, bathroom all excellent and tasteful in a contemporary... More
