“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

What an amazing place, it was well worth going on the guided tour (no extra cost) and I would highly recommend the on site cafe/restaurant.

“WONDERFUL - PLEASE GO - BEST IN NORTHAMPTON”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Well worth a visit and tour for anyone interested in design, architecture, interiors or just modern spaces ( next door and restaurant ) aligned with small terraced gems - this is certainly one.
The room at the front, which you come to last, will knock your socks off with its daring design. Telegraph subscriber 2 for 1 offer too.
Superb !

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

I'd not heard much about Mackintosh before visiting the house but having spent a few hours wandering around this gem, I am hooked. A fascinating, bonkers and mesmerising house that left a huge impression on me. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, what a find

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

The building is more or less in its original state and it is like stepping back in time. Excellent guides.
