Life is full of contradictions... Like... "Never judge a book by it's cover" or "first impressions count" Hmmm... The cover of this book says grotty. On a busy main road, tiny car park, noisy. When I arrived I wandered around for a good five minutes as there was no one there to greet me. But then I saw a lady... More

WOW, what a fantastic find. Extremely friendly service from Tina on booking and Katie with the very warm welcome and back to Tina again for accomodating us at breakfast just before 10am (as one of us had been participating in the Hillsborough Park parkrun). The rooms were clean and well presented and Katie was very helpful with giving directions to... More

This was my second stay at this B&B and like last time, it suited me perfectly well. The rooms are 'no frills' but are clean and comfy and the staff are really welcoming and helpful. They didn't mind me arriving extremely late and even juggled the cars around in the car park to squeeze me in. The breakfasts are excellent... More

Last minute booking, decent clean room, everything we needed but what made our stay all the better was the very friendly, attentive service we got from the staff (especially Tina) from making the booking via telephone, checking in and an excellent full english breakfast with a welcoming smile and friendly conversation/banter from the staff and owner. Would certainly stay again.

Stayed here and although the management and staff were super friendly, and room was clean with comfortable beds, it leaves a lot to be desired in connection with health and safety. Of particular concern were the FOUR staircases for an establishment with only 18 rooms! The staircases were far too steep with treads that cant possibly meet UK standards, as... More

I stayed in this "Bed and Breakfast" last week. The person who checked us in was very friendly, the place was clean and the was conveniently located for what we wanted to do. Be aware that the price does NOT include breakfast, there is a charge for using a credit card and "pre-authorisation" means that 25% is taken from your... More

Clean B&B, friendly staff. Ideal for away matches, just a stride down to the ground. Well worth paying the extra £5.00 for the breakfast. Only let down by the pink portable TV which didn't work as someone had robbed the remote.

Great place, easy to get into the town centre, great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and a very comfortable and quite nights sleep. Clean and hot shower facilities. Tea facilities in the room. See you next year. Brad

Drove past this B&B and avoided it due to the grotty looking front of the building, however after driving round for 2 hours looking for somewhere else to stay and having no luck we ended up back at the Alara and stayed here, just goes to show "don't judge a book by its cover"I was pleasantly surprised, very friendly staff,...
