“Home from Home”
Reviewed September 16, 2010

I have stayed at Witchingham on several occasions and have always found it to be in a very clean and tidy condition. The rooms are very comfortable and I have never had a bad nights sleep! The staff are always extremely helpful and nothing is ever a problem. There is excellent WiFi access on request and the rooms have tea/coffee making facilities along with a modern TV.

Witchingham is a 5 mins stroll from the town and even less to the scenic seafront. The ferry port and mainline train station are a 2 mins drive away or 10/15 mins if walking. I would recommend Witchingham for both families and business travellers alike.

Sorry this has been so long coming, but just an e-mail to say thank you so
much for what you did for us from staying late to finding a restaurant, that
was far above what we would have expected. It really did kick off our break.

The rooms were great as was breakfast. We wanted for noting and your
hospitality was brilliant.

Anyone travelling that way I will have no hesitation in recommending them to
you

Thank you once again

Dave

We stayed at Witchingham B &B after the Ireland leg of our holiday, and only because we were unable to pick up a hire car in Holyhead until the next day (Monday). My recollection is that we paid only 50 GBP for a three bed-room suite, (our 21 yr old daughter traveled with us),so I wasn't expecting too much.

We were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and ample tea and coffee making facilities provided. Toilet and shower were more than adequate. There is no formal breakfast offered. However there are ample "help-yourself" facilities, cereal, toast, fruit, tea/coffee, juice available for a very nominal extra charge. My wife and daughter took breakfast and were impressed. Very good WiFi access is available upon request ; once again, a very nominal additional charge is involved.

As reported by the previous reviewer, the B & B is located only ten, oh maybe fifteen, minutes walk from the ferry and very central to Holyhead township. We too enjoyed dinner at the Indian Restaurant, (on a Sunday evening you may have trouble finding much else available), and found the food good and reasonably priced.

After dinner, we took a two hour stroll along the waterfront to the end of the breakwater light-house. The area has some very beautiful locations.

We met Tudor after our walk - (our hosts had had commitments earlier and were not present upon our arrival. They had left a note explaining where keys were etc.)
He is a very charming and accommodating gentleman - very easy to talk with.

If you are expecting 4 star hotel appointments for your 50 odd pounds, then you will be disappointed. If you are after comfortable, value for money lodgings, then I recommend Witchingham B.B.

This B&B is very clean and comfortable. The twin room I stayed in had a very clean small on-suite shower room, tea/coffee making facility and flat screen TV. The bed linnen was clean and fresh and I slept well in the very comfortable bed.
The owners, Claire & Tudor are friendly and accommodating. Although we arrived late in the evening, Claire was there with a friendly smile and found out what time the local Indian restaurant closed for us.
The B&B has a driveway to a small parking area at the rear. After riding for 5 hours we were all comfortable in the knowledge that the bikes were off the road and as safe as they could be.
An Indian restaurant was only a short walk away. The staff were friendly and even stayed open late for us. The food was good quality and reasonably priced.
The B&B is ideally situated, literally less than 5 minutes ride to the ferry port.
Claire and Tudor, thank you for providing the perfect, relaxed start to our long weekend tour of Ireland.

wasn't impressed with this B & B at all - the price is very fair at £55.00 but everything is very very old and tired and I would prefer to pay that bit extra and get a much better service - on arrival read the notes in the bedroom outlining the price was 'room only' which was a bit surprising as we had booked on last minute and it def gave the impression of bed and breakfast and no mention of room only there - so really it should be classed as a B not a B & B - the door to the loo which was in the bedroom was a slide door which only closed half way so no privacy whatsoever if you were sharing your room - and as this also held the shower it did nothing but disturb the other occupants , in addition the room was quite small for a couple of people - ok place if you cant find anywhere else, otherwise spend a bit longer looking
