The welcome was friendly and we were served tea in the beautifully appointed guest lounge. The linens are cotton and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast was good. The hotel has been beautifully decorated and... More

I needed to stay close to work one night and did a search in the local area for suitable places that were not too expensive. The Mayflower came up and they recommended a room which sounded perfect. On the day of my stay, I popped in at around 5pm to drop off my bag and pick up the key before... More

We stayed in the Mayfair for one night as we were attending a family funeral. We had a lovely warm welcome from Mark upon arrival and taken to our rooms. The rooms were beautiful, very modern with everything matching. You could tell the place is so well looked after. Breakfast was beautiful. Really enjoyed our stay. Bridgeen Northern Ireland

We stayed for 1 night in the Mayfair Guest house. The rooms were lovely-really loved the decor in the rooms, lovely, fresh, light and airy room. Mayfair is only about a 10 minute walk from the town-a nice stroll and the parking is a bonus as we left the car there and walked from the B&B all the way to... More
