The room was clean, full of optional, the bathrom perfect, The owner has been very kind, she let us keep the car parked for few hour after the check out in order to fix some issues in the city centre. Vote: 10/10

It is difficult to park in front of shandon bells but we had a pleasant experience from start to finish once we were let in. Our room was an attic room, which was quite small but cozy and cleverly laid-out - cozy! There was a full bathtub and very comfortable bed. Nice coffee and tea were available in the room.... More

Nice staff, had no problems and breakfast was excellent. They also have a swanky smoking/chilling area next to the river. In regards to wifi and the negative comments, I was in the room above the dining hall (where it was claimed to only be wifi) so can't really comment. My room was kinda small, but clean and nice in general.... More

Was bit worried reading all the reviews, but this place is really nice. Booked double and triple room for one night. Both had brand new bathrooms, very comfy beds, everything was clean. Didn't book breakfast, so can't comment on that. There's café across the street serving breakfast so I can recommend that. Place is also close to town, few minutes... More

Spent 2 nights here for my boyfriend's birthday. Complementary bottle of wine on arrival to help us celebrate. A lovely touch. Room standard, basic and clean. Exactly what we were expecting (after some bad previous experiences with misleading websites) Shower a little awkward and temperature unpredictable. Lovely views. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff.

I liked my stay in this beautiful B&B by the river. Very nice and warm atmosphere. Breakfast was served near the river. The room itself was very good. Will definitely come back again. Highly recommend!!!

I spent two night in this B&B that is really comfortable and close to the city centre. My room was nice and absolutely clean, I found soap, shampoo and many towels. In my room there were also coffee and tea facilities. Natalie has been kind and helpful with me, she satisfied all my requests doing more than I asked.

I was cheated, disrespectful service, very dissappointing. I had booked a certain room (no 11), we agreed on prize 55€, Thursday night in February. I told I will be arriving from Dublin and be there 11pm. She said she will leave the key under the mat outside front door. There was no one to greet us or help with bags,... More

Stayed in this guesthouse during the weekend of 7th December 2013. Just basic. You can hear other people in the rooms next to you as the walls are so thin. If you wanted peaceful sleep this wouldn't be the place for you. Also pillow cases had stains on them. When I told the hostess no apology just had to pay... More
