My partner had stayed at Fatima House last year for 5 days whilst attending a course and he 'warned' me that it was basic but clean (he stayed in an economy single room - shared toilet and shower room).
We stayed in Room 6 which had a double and single bed which were really comfortable. There was a small en-suite containing a shower and loo in one corner of the room. It was clean and certainly adequate. There was also a wash basin in the room itself. Having read the reviews about having to wait for hot water we left the shower running for 3 or 4 minutes before getting in and the water was then hot and plentiful.
The room was situated at the rear of the house and so we had no problems with street noise and slept soundly both nights we stayed.
We enjoyed the breakfast on day 1 - the porridge was lovely, as was the fresh fruit bread. We didn't try the full fry. We had to leave very early on day 2 so Niall arranged to leave us some milk and cereal which was very helpful.
We would have liked a kettle in the room but we were out most of the time and so never asked. I suspect it would not have been a problem if we had!
The walk into the city centre was 15 - 20 minutes and straightforward.
All in all a really friendly B&B. It is cheap and cheerful and we will be staying there again on our next visit.
