Robin was very helpful, the room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast was outstanding. The breakfast room walls are packed with memorabilia -- almost a museum. Close to the sights and easy to get to.

The room was spacious, lovely decor and warm with comfortable beds. We were situated at the top of the house in a very quiet, peaceful room. It was ideal.... More

I stayed for two nights with Deborah and Robin and I must say that they are wonderful hosts. The accomodation was comfortable, spotless and warm. The breakfast was to die for and the selection was great. I highly recommend Robins french toast! Having private parking in a secure area was a bonus as we were situated so central in the... More

I've stayed in 4 star hotels before and I can honestly say between food, customer service, comfort, location it is very much worth a stay. I heard of the place through friends who have stayed here and the overall experience was beyond my expectations for the price. Highly recommend

McCarthy's B&B consists of 2 historic buildings merged into one, and has large, spacious rooms, great views of the historic city, and warm, welcoming proprietors. The rooms were rather luxurious, and the beds were very snuggly and comfortable. The hostess and her husband were warm and welcoming, and ready with good suggestions for dining out. The only drawback to this... More

I arrived late at night after travelling (train, boat,bus) from Cardiff. I was very tired and was shown to my room, a little quickly, I thought. Favourite TV show, maybe.

Couldn't... More
