Thank you for your review. Clearly you were unhappy with your stay. Allow me to address a few of your points. You arrived in the evening with no pre-booking accompanied by your brother. Mid December and it was cold. We were, in fact, closed (Sunday) but my wife took pity and checked you in. You asked for 2 single rooms... More

Fernbank was a fantastic find at a fantastic price. We stayed in the deluxe room which was superb with quality fittings and furnishings and a lovely shower room. David and Linda were welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay and their daughter was the perfect stand-in for our arrival allowing them an evening off. Would definitely stay again - the bed...

The title says it all, lovely room and ensuite and a comfy bed. Breakfast was also good, even though the 40th birthday party we'd been at the night before was taking its toll! Property is right next to the town centre amenities so very handy for shops and bars/restaurants.

Thank you for your review Martin. Linda and I were very happy to read your kind words; such feedback is very rewarding. We were also glad that your night out was enjoyable; the indoor bowling centre is very popular for parties after its major renovation. Sorry about the "afters". David More

Smelly, dirty and uncomfortable. Probably what the competition would like to hear. However, there is no competition. Probably one of the nicest b and b I have ever stayed in. David, lovely guy. I also now know how I'm going to decorate my living room.

Thank you for taking the time to post your very positive review. As regards the heavy luggage, I heartily agree. Call ahead to check on ground floor availability and, if not possible, consider taking a smaller overnight bag; we shall store the big bag until your departure. Thank you again. David More

Linda and I are really grateful for your positive review. It was a shame that you couldn't stay a wee bit longer, although the lure of The Ryder Cup was too strong. We understand.
