Avoid at all costs!! This without a doubt has been the worst stay I have ever had!! I strongly advise against staying in this guest house! The owners were hostile, unapproachable and unprofessional! They spoke to us at breakfast and slagged off other guests whilst we were eating, making me feel terribly uncomfortable as I read reviews of other customers... More

Nice warm greeting from the owner, told me all that I needed to know plus other stuff! Shown to the room was clean a little cramped in but okay for 1 night. Even had a sky box a first for me! The bed was very comfortable just worried that I would over sleep! There is a alarm next to the... More

This B&B is about as close as it gets for the P&O ferry. On arrival we received a lovely warm welcome and were shown to our room. We had the smallest room available ( a double) and this may not be suitable to a less mobile couple as it is slightly tight around the far side of the bed. However... More

Another great night's sleep! My husband and I always stay at the Homestead when catching the ferry to Ireland. The Homestead must be at the top of the list when selecting the best B & B. Very clean and comfortable rooms and house. You would travel the world to match Margaret's hospitality. She will do anything she can to make... More

Excellent family-run B&B, you can clearly see great pride is taken in the cleanliness, service and quality of food served. Margaret is a very welcoming host and treated us as if we're part of the family and she couldn't do enough for us. We had travelled overnight from South Cerney and parked outside until check-in time but Margaret came and... More

Credit where credit is due. I travelled up from Bristol and got a lovely reception.This B&B is truly excellent, spotless rooms and beds, excellent breakfast, lovely friendly host (Margaret) and great value for money. You honestly could not ask for anything more, I had that lovely feeling of being fully satisfied with the service I received when I left the... More

Spent two nights on our way to and from Ireland. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Margaret was a very kind host and we had a delicious cooked breakfast which was prepared exactly as we wanted it. Margaret takes great pride in her establishment and ensures that you are happy. On our return journey she offered us the larger room... More

We enjoyed our stay here and our innkeeper was friendly and sweet. The breakfast was great, the room clean and comfortable. It is located directly across from the ferry to Larne, Northern Ireland, but that's it. We were taking the ferry the next morning so it was perfect for us. There. is a rather shabby pub right beside the inn... More
