We stayed here for 1 night in room 2. It was extremely noisy - road traffic from the main road directly below. The room was OK but there's a need for some new bedding and some redecoration. Breakfast was fine and the host was very friendly. But overall if we'd paid £50 for the two of us we'd have thought... More

A broken bed, a childish room, FILTHY bedding, the pillows stank! Thank goodness we didn't have breakfast ... The whole experience was depressing! Noisy, dirty when we complained the woman just shrugged and said " oh" Don't stay here ... Find another place ... Or sleep on the park up the road !!!

Thank you for the feedback, which really shocked us. As soon as you notified us (on the second day) that the bed had broken it was replaced immediately. We did not blame anyone as these things happen. As for the other comments, they are not true. You asked for a special rate as you did not want breakfast during your... More

A super b&b. I stayed for four nights helping my daughter to move into a house nearby. My room and the public areas that I saw were very clean and tidy but, overall, the place is a bit seedy and could do with freshening up. I stayed in room one, a clean, comfortable twin bedded room overlooking the side street... More

Run by freindly husband and wife team, situated on a very busy main road, traffic noise could be an issue to some . Have stayed in room one twice, clean and comfortable also resionably quiet. On street parking needing a permit issued by the b&b. Choice of places to eat short walk away.

Kirk lea is an exceptional b and b. A warm and friendly welcome, helped instilled a home from home atmosphere. Location provided a perfect base for business as well as facilitating leisure activities. Overall i would recommend Kirk Lea, as breakfast was perfectly cooked and plentiful.

Rooms are quite pricey for what you get. Bathroom in serious need of professional maintenance as its grubby and falling to bits. Indian owner not investing money in making a quality B&B experience!

Hi, thank you for your comments. We hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise and sorry if the bathroom was found not to be up to your standard. We’ve recently restarted the redecoration. Have a look at our recent photo’s on our website. More

I made my reservation several months ago when invited to a Wedding nearby. Before reserving, I read the web site thoroughly and was pleased with what I read hence my booking. On arrival the alarm bells rang and that was just looking at this place from the outside. I was greeted by the very pleasant John and shown to my... More

Hi, Thank you for your comments. Agreed the staff at Kirk Lea Guest House are very helpful and always try to help. Sorry we were not up to your expectations. With regards to the furnishing, window closer and floor board that needs screwing down will be looked into this weekend, if the room is free. Thanks you. More

My wife and I stayed her in early December 2011, we can not match the place we stayed with the reviews we read. The whole place is tired and worn out, the curtains were thin and let in the light from the street lamp outside. It is opposite the hospital and the ambulance sirens kept us awake. There is a...
