“Excellent stay again 1st class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our stay with Helen at the inishowen was fantastic, i've stayed about half a dozen times now and have never been let down by the service received, the welcome was warm and friendly, the rooms are spotless and modern with all you could want, the breakfast's are always top notch and every time your made to feel like a friend and not just a customer, i would highly recommend staying here and look forward to staying there the next time a visit in on the the cards A*****

Room Tip: Phone well in advance as anywhere else is 2nd best, rooms at the rear are quieter.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and couldn't have felt more at home. The accomodation and food were excellent- made even more so by the owner who was fabulous; she made us feel more than comfortable.
thank you for a wonderful stay.

As former Arbroath residents who have not stayed in B&B for many a year we were hesitant to say the least, alas a shortage of hotels in the town led us there and we were not dissapointed. The house is modern and clean, Helen is friendly and pleasant, the breakfast is fantastic and the rates when compared to others in the town are superb.
We visit the town to see family every 3 or 4 years and would book again.

Thankyou for taking the time to review your stay. It was lovely to meet your family. I was most impressed by your teenage children whose manners and attitude were impeccable. Hope its not too long before you return to your home town. I will have to sack the help though as its the first time in ten years i havnt scored a perfect five for cleanliness.

On our first visit to Arbroath we were lucky enough to find accommodation at Inishowen Guest House, a quiet haven for weary travellers. After a long tiring drive we could not have been made more welcome, the proprieter Helen was extremely friendly and we immediately felt at home. Our room, number 2, was immaculate as was the rest of the house. Plenty of parking space available, a view of the sea, and when clear a view of the Bell Rock Lighthouse, a trip out to the lighthouse was the main purpose of our visit. We had no sooner unpacked our suitcases than Helen was on the internet for me to find the telephone number of the boat company running trips out to the lighthouse ! We shall certainly stay again on our next visit to Arbroath, but next time telephone in advance to make sure we get a room.

A very well run, clean and welcoming place to stay. The owner went out of her way to help us and had lot's of helpful local knowledge. Very good breakfasts and good value for many. Would happily recommend to others.

A group of 7 of us stayed at the Inishowen during a charity bike from Aberdeen to Nottingham. although tired and weary we were made to feel welcomed and at home by Helen,

The rooms were very comforatble and we all had our own toilet and shower, the decor is bright and modern and the location is ideal for the beach/sea and the centre of town.

There was a hughe choice of breakfast and the full cooked breakfast was spot on, just what we needed.Anything we needed Helen was on hand to help.

I would recommend this Guest House to anyone wanting a relaxed and comforatable stay.

Thanks Helen, we hope to see you again.
