we stayed here the night before I ran The Great North Run, on arrival we wasn't quite sure we was at the right place as there is no sign on the house anywhere. There was no reception we stood in the kitchen to pay and to fill in our breakfast orders, which I found a little strange and unprofessional, however... More

5 of us stayed the night and had been told beforehand that no cooked breakfast was available at 7am. When we arrived we were asked by the man on duty what cooked items we wanted next morning so filled in the orders. Apparently he was the breakfast server and was quite happy to get up early and cook for us.... More

I have never written a review before but was driven to write one after our stay at Loughbrow House. We were extremely disappointed when we arrived at this B&B and if we had had any where else to stay we would have left on arrival. The house was dirty, shabby, outdated, unkempt and was certainly not what I was expecting... More

Great location for this former grand house. In need of serious investment to bring up to modern standards. I have stayed in hotels, guest houses and B&Bs throughout the world for the last 40 years and this is in the low end of the scale. Cluttered rooms, very musty without basic house keeping. Shared bathrooms with no showers, this is... More

Stayed for one night in the Pink room & didn't quite know what to expect as some reviews were not positive. We have stayed in 5 star luxury hotels throughout the world & if you're expecting that sort of clean, clinical & formulaic establishment you will be disappointed. If you are excited by characters & enjoy unique experiences this is... More

Over-priced, dirty and in desperate need of some maintenance. Having worked in hospitality my entire working life, I know how this industry works. I understand that this is a period property and should be appreciated for its character and history, but it has been seriously neglected over the years. Thick cob webs, paint peeling off, mould, stained pillows (I could... More

I would agree with the comments of SandDancer1956, but for me its not about best and worst, but accepting that this is a house where old things have been retained and that's what makes a stay here such a unique experience and makes Loughbrow House a rare find for those who will appreciate it. It is a beautiful house and... More

Spent one night here and found it fascinating. The house does have faded grandeur but was full of character and fantastic furniture. If you want all mod cons go and stay in a Premier Inn. It was warm and welcoming and it was easy to imagine that nothing much has changed since Victorian times. We did have a shower although... More

For me this place is kind of the best and worst of b and bs. The house is a mix of fabulous drawing room, gorgeous garden, very worn carpets, very small, very old heaters - all of which worked ok for me, but I do see how some people would find the not so good bits unacceptable. The breakfast was... More

Spent one evening here on the booking of my travel agent and was counting the hours until I could leave. The property is old and dated. There is a musty odor throughout the house that was nauseating at times. The room I stayed in did not have an en-suite bathroom; the shared bathroom had a tub only, no shower, and... More
