We managed to get a last minute reservation at Fortitude Cottage for a twin bedded room for two nights. It was a quick decision based on reviews and availability and we were not to be disappointed.
Despite the freezing temperatures, we found the cottage lovely and cosy with all the facilities you'd imagine. Comfy beds, hot showers and a little flat screen tv were perfect. It is a brisk 10 minute walk from Gunwharf Quays and we managed to fit most of the Christmas shopping into the two days.
We popped to the pub next door for some tasty fish and chips and would have ventured further afield if it wasn't so bitter outside and we'd already put in a hard days shopping!
The hosts are fantastic - the perfect mix of friendly and charming but not intruding. The breakfasts are also great - with tasty hot options and scrummy marmalade and jam too.
I would definately recommend this bed and breakfast, the price is right, the accommodation superb and fastidously clean with a great breakfast offering. It would be lovely to come back in the summer and enjoy the perfect spot by the harbours edge next time!
