“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2009

We arrived at the guest house and were promptly greeted by the very friendly owner. She showed us to our room on the top floor, which was spotlessly clean and had a decent sized, also spotless, ensuite bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was just what we needed to set us up for the day, with tea, coffee and apple and orange juice, a selection of fruit and cereal to start then a full English breakfast with toast and jams/marmalade. It was very quiet and only a few minutes walk from the harbour. THe owner was always available to help and always seemed happy to do so. I shall definately be staying there again.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in August. Maybe we expected too much after other B&Bs we have stayed but this is what we felt.
Good points - nice ground floor room, which however looked out over the back yard. Good shower room which looked as though it was fairly new. Nice comfortable King bed with nice bed linen.However the room had 2 large chairs which took up most of the floor space and there was only a tiny wardrobe.The hotel is in a good position within easy reach of the town
Everyone said the breakfast was good, but the same every day with no choice,and INSTANT coffeein a metal jug Yuk! Tinned tomatoes and frozen hash browns, no choice of white or brown toast. I do not like mushrooms or black pudding but I did not get extra of anything else instead.
Tea and coffee in the room, nothing else no biscuits or hot chocolate and also the complimentary toiletries left a little to be desired.
As I said we found the hotel Adequate for our needs but we will not be going back.

lansbury44, owner at The Lansbury Guest House, responded to this review, July 30, 2009
If on booking your room you had asked weather it was front or back facing, you could have been relocated to another room. As you never stipulated it could not be rectified. Most people prefer a comfy chair to watch t.v. in on an evening, not those small thin wooden ones. There is ample room to walk around the room, unless you want to dance! If you had requested anything for breakfast you could have had it. The next B&B you stay in I suggest you try communicating with the propietor while your in the building. You might find it benefical as I grant all my guests specific requests, WHEN ASKED.

Immaculate rooms and a fantastic breakfast, this b&b is in a great location just minutes from the spa pavilion and the town centre, about a five minute walk to the Met bar.
This b&b is goth friendly for goth weekends also!

  • Liked — The warm welcome and very clean rooms
