We stayed for 1 night in April and found this guest house very friendly. We had a superior room which was tastefully decorated and furnished. Tea/coffee facilities, ipod docking station with radio, a very large bed, good storage facilities, good bathroom with shower unit that had water jets, good extras such as shampoo, shower gel etc. A nice touch was...

My Niece and I have just come after a stay at the Mowbray and I have to say we struck lucky! We were greatly warmly upon arrival, which made us feel welcome. We rented a twin room and I have to say for the money we paid - it was fabulous! The décor was modern and of a very high... More

It is an old fashioned, traditional hotel-style, guest house with modern decor and super furnishings. My family went to visit the owner, Darren to view the hotel as a... More

We are sorry you did not like your room which was a budget single on the top floor. The single beds are 3 ft 3" wide executive single beds with standard single duvets and so cannot understand why you felt they were so short. Our hot water is on 24 hours a day and you never mentioned anything when you... More

We found this a good choice as although the room was small, it had everything we needed. The lift getting up to the first floor was handy when we arrived with our luggage. The bed was very comfortable but we were glad we had brought our own pillows, as the pillows provided were not soft enough. Unfortunately our stay coincided... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Mowbray Guesthouse. We are sorry that unlike the rest of the people who come here your experience was not up to your expectations. We do however, feel that most of the review is down to the fact that you clearly thought that you had booked into a 4 star hotel when... More

It can be daunting to go away with young children, especially when you're in different surroundings but the Mowbray experience made everything very easy (again!). We booked the 'family room' which has the security of one entrance with a small 'porch' for storing the buggy etc and 2 ensuite rooms inside. This was by far the best arrangement we have... More
