It was delicious! The rooms are... More

Stayed here with 2 friends whilst Dorothy was looking after Dunmail house, she was great and offered us another room at a very reasonable rate, which in hindsight was really good value. Great location and great B&B, clean, homely and good quality breakfasts. Will definitely return here as first choice if I am ever in the region.
