We arrived late at night after a long ferry trip , and received a very warm welcome. The two bedrooms were spotlessly clean, and the owner went out of her way to make us comfortable. If you are looking for a B and B with ultra modern, sleek decor, and a sniffy, neutral atmosphere, then this Bed and Breakfast isn't... More

This accommodation has to pass a health check this month; it needs to! Highly priced for what was on offer. Friendliness does not count for a lot in the 21st Century, when the state of the place is jaded, dull and questionably clean.(Carting luggage up 3 flights of stairs after a long journey is not awe inspiring): I certainly don't...

We stayed here last week, very last minute. The guest house were extremely accommodating, great value for money, clean and very friendly. They got up early to serve us an excellent breakfast as we had an early start. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks!

We stayed 2 nights at this guest house, having left a guest house booked with last minute which was awful (tiny room, noisy). We received a very warm welcome, had a great room ensuite, great breakfast and all for a very reasonable rate. We will definitely be staying here again. The landlady is attentive but not intrusive. Loved it!

A clean, friendly and welcoming environment provided by Tony and Lesley, who do a fantastic job of looking after the customers. Ideally located for exploring both the waterfront and city center, the Firs Guest House would meet the needs of any kind of visitor. The rooms are clean and very well facilitated, and the breakfast was sensational. Overall a fairly-priced,... More

Although the owners were very friendly and the location was excellent, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The sheets were stained and a cat had peed outside the room. The owners were very apologetic and changed the sheets immediately. They even left us a sorry card and some chocolates. The breakfast was excellent it was just a shame... More
