The rooms were clean and tidy and both had an en suites. We were brought up not too far away from here so even... More

The Emerald B&B was a very nice place to stay. There are supermarkers and restaurants around and with the bus you reacb the city centre in only 10 minutes. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The owner was very pleasant and she gave us some useful hints where to go. Last but not least: the breakfast. It was just AWESOME!... More

We would thoroughly recommend this very friendly guest house.

The owners are passionate about good food and my gluten-free diet was not a problem to them. We were... More

Our stay here was very good, Ann was really helpful and the room was immaculate with bedding being changed every other day and towels daily. Breakfast was good although the sausages were not great, there was plenty of choice with good size portions. I most definitely go back. Great value for money.

I stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed. The landlady is very helpful and polite and the breakfasts were so big I struggled to get going after them in the morning. Also the tea is nice and strong! No complaints whatsoever about my stay. I shall be returning.
