Have stayed here several times now (once for work but otherwise as a stopping off point on the way North/South). A genuine welcome, friendly and relaxing atmosphere, good food and great beer. The room was well maintained, clean and comfortable. We know the original owners who converted it from a derelict pumping station to a brewery, pub and B & B but have always paid the published rate and stay/eat/drink here simply because we like it and think it is great value - we paid £79.40 for the double room and full English breakfast. We have tried two other chain hotels in the area but The Keelman is both better and cheaper.
