Stayed for 1 night to attend a function. We weren't expecting anything in particular, but were pleasantly surprised by the good quality and cleanliness of the room. We slept well and breakfast the next morning was superb. Pauline and Russell are lovely people, made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a lovely stay!

We had 2 nights at Kingsmere this weekend gone and it was the perfect place to stay. Rus was a great host, friendly (and fun for the kids) without being intrusive. We stayed in the family room which was perfect for us: Enough room to put up our travel cot, so accomodated 5 of us without feeling overly cramped. Great... More

The room was very clean, bathroom a decent size and clean/modern, excellent shower and comfortable beds. No problem sleeping as it's totally quiet, and there's even a VHS tape library if you want to watch some old films! That made... More
