Courtland Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Although the Courtland calls itself a hotel we would say it's more of a B&B. We stayed in room 2 which is at the front facing onto the busy main road. Two very warm evenings and needing the Windows open, the road noise and the bar just down the road made sleeping very difficult. The room was adequately equipped although there was a previous occupants hair on the bathroom floor. The bed linen and towels were nicely laundered but the bed not very comfortable. The light switch and fan were dirty. We felt that on arrival the lady owner proceeded to give us a rushed welcome requesting/telling us what time we had to have breakfast the following morning. We were asked for full payment upon arrival as priority. Then on departure we were were almost pressured to leave a positive review in the guest book. The breakfast and service was good but all in all too expensive for the experience had.

The bad bits: We booked in advance for two couples we found the route to park confusing so would suggest that approaching and parking is made clearer due to the one way streets etc. Paying up front was strange, but we could understand that it might be necessary. Booking for breakfast by 10:00 was strange and didn't really allow for you to change your mins. It's not a hotel and shouldn't be branded as one.
The good bits. The hostess and host were very friendly, our rooms were very clean and tidy and the bathroom complements were more than I'd have expected. The shower was great. The breakfast was very well cooked with top quality produce.

General We arrived in the middle of a heatwave so our room was hot although we were supplied with a fan which was good. The stairs can be a bit tricky to negotiate so perhaps not for people who might have difficulty negotiating old stairs.

We had a good pleasant time. Would I go back? Maybe but I'd search around for alternatives first.

We stayed one night on the way down south from a trip up north. Courtland is a very nice B&B/hotel in the heart of the town and run by very nice people. The room was quite small but fine for a night with a very comfortable bed, beautiful decor and a very good shower. Breakfast was good quality (although the poached egg wasn't runny) and varied. I would recommend staying here and would certainly do so again. Only downside I would say is that it's on the main road so a bit noisy.

My friend booked a double room for our stay and when we arrived, the landlord offered us to choose between a double room or a twin room. He gladly showed us the choices that we have and in the end we chose the twin room instead because it looks really cute and clean. It has a separate bathroom but it is just for us, so we had no problems with that. We arrived a little bit early than the check-in time but had no problems checking-in. Easy to find, good location, good breakfast and would really recommend staying here.

Twin Room and separate bathroom clean and well equipped but cold, especially bathroom. Towels too small especially with coldness of bathroom. Nice breakfast. Lady owner quite abrupt and made us feel a little unwelcome.

Booked the courtland over the telephone as a last minute booking, all i can say, is that the landlady, was exremely courteous, helpful and friendly,when she found out she is from the same area as us, she immediately gave us a free upgrade. when we arrived, we were met by the landlord, who was equally as nice, we arrived a little early, but he let us check in anyway. He recommended places to visit and eat and even drew a little map for us. It is true you have to pay up front, but it isnt a problem for us as we like to get off early in the morning without any hold ups .Breakfast was ok, cooked to order, which ,you have to do the night before, which again isnt a problem for us, but can understand, not being ok for everyone, as, sometimes you may change your mind. Overall, if your looking for a good b&b in a great location, close to town at really reasonable prices, well, this is the place to come. Oh, nearly forgot, the bed in room 6 , is so comfy, that, we didnt want to get out of it. Wish we'd booked for more than one night. Thankyou John and Diana.
