Stayed here for one night. Went to have a bath when we arrived to find out that there was no tap for the hot water. Later I went to wash my hands in the sink and there was no hot water at all. Breakfast was good and the hotel (classed as botique) was really needing a good make over. The... More

Just got back from a weekend here & we had a lovely stay. It is in a good location, about a 15-20 minute walk from the centre, or a 10 min bus ride (bus stop is right outside the b&b). Bed was comfortable & room was clean. The owner was very friendly & the breakfast was really good! Only a... More

Did a late booking and got a good price for the room. Location is very close to town, only a 15min walk to city centre. Bed was ok for one night. Breakfast was really good, continental+cook breakfast.

Amazingly spacious room and ensuite. Children had their own room. Very quiet for sleeping and comfortable beds. A lot of stairs to climb which for us was ok. The WiFi was fast. Breakfast was outstanding, the best we had on our 2 month tour of the UK and Ireland. Freshly cooked with fresh ingredients, something we looked forward to each... More

Cleanliness left much to be desired! Room too cold and when asked for a heater it wasn't given. In the afternoons and evening the lady owner wasn't around, so couldn't complain there and then. Worst part was that our dirty towels, which were left on the floor, where found back on the rack, semi dried but dirty, with the floor... More

The owners (mother and son ) were delightful and full of assistance in everything. Building old but room we had downstairs at the street frontage was spacious and bright with no traffic noise at all. Breakfast superb. Free... More
