I stayed at St. Margaret's with two of my friends for 3 nights and we occupied the family room. The room was large, tastefully decorated and the bathroom was clean and overall it was a very well maintained place. There was more than enough space for 3 girls to share. They had a wide variety of breakfast options as well... More

Shame they don't try harder to make you feel more welcome.This might go part way then to make up for what is a out of date bb. That needs money spent on it. would not go back.

I booked a room in this guest house to stay with friends, but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel it. They would refuse to give our deposit back, quoting their own terms and conditions. It does state: no refunds avaialbe, but: - we gave them ample notice (in May, for stay in July) - plenty of time to... More

I have stayed at St Margaret's several times in the past year and found it to be very nice, owners friendly and very helpful with local information. It is a bit high, so someone who isn't able to walk very far, may find it difficult, but the views are great. I appreciate their ethical outlook and use of Fairtrade.

My husband and I were booked into this B and B for two nights and only managed one! This was an incredibly poor B and B, and we felt so disappointed by everything you should reasonably expect. We were welcomed by the owner telling us our car was too big for the allocated car park space and had to park... More

After reading the reviews posted by two other guests of St Margaret's I have to wonder if we stayed at the same place. Yes the house itself was clean and the breakfast tasty, but the welcome was far from welcoming by two people who I had to question should they be in the hospitality business??? This was our only holiday... More

We stayed at this inn for a few nights and overall the property was clean, pleasant and nice and breakfast was quite good. There were a few minor issues but the owners dealt with them quite well. The one thing that would have really made a difference to our stay, though, was if there was wireless internet in the rooms... More
