I stayed in Brookville House and was pleasantly surprised with the experience. It seems the previous manager was of questionable sanity and left the owners with a ruined reputation and a repair bill for thousands.
On my arrival i was warmly greeted by the owner's niece and shown to my room. I had requested a single but stayed in a double bed with an ensuite. The room had been recently refurbished with all comforts necessary- double bed, spacious wardrobe, writing desk and ensuite. It's location adjacent to the canal and a 5 minute stroll to town makes it an ideal location from which to explore the surrounding area.
The staff were anxious to make sure i enjoyed my stay, and were always on hand should anything be required, going so far as to provide a big jug of water for defrosting windscreens in freezing january.
All in all I would recommend this b&b. It is plainly obvious they are keen to rebuild their reputation and should be highly commended for their efforts to date. At 30 euro a night for b&b with full breakfast, friendly staff for a chat and car parking you can't go wrong.
