“Charming, helpful, relaxing guest house with personable hosts”
Reviewed September 27, 2010

My family--husband, daughter, and I--stayed at Aarandale and found it to be relaxing and cozy. Our hosts were super-helpful, and we felt absolutely free to come and go as we pleased. We would definitely stay here again as the location is easy and yet quiet.

I stayed at this B&B for a week after viewing on the internet and was somewhat disappointed as it did not live up to expectations. It appears that there has been a change of ownership since the website was first prepared and the property has lost it original 3* status. It has been allowed to deteriorate and although comfortable and clean enough it gave an air of neglect. My single ensuite room was adequate but rather old fashioned and cowebs were to be found everywhere. The garden also appeared neglected compared to the pictures on the website.The room however was attended to each day,the bed made and the instant coffee, tea and bisquits replenished.

The small portable colour tv was adequate but unlike several B&B's I have stayed in recently lacked a choice of satellite channels.

The reviews posted on the website are obviously old and relate to the previous owners.

The breakfast was neither a "Full English" nor what one might call "Continental". A selection of cereals was available and just orange juice. I was only ever offered a boiled egg or scrambled egg together with toast as the main event but a fresh pot of coffee or tea was provided. Certainly with the exception of one other B&B, it has to be the poorest breakfast that I have been offered in the UK. Very disappointing.

On the plus side the lady owner was extremely engaging, helpful and polite.

  • Liked — The convenience of parking on site and access to the town
  • Disliked — The food

We would wish to respond to the above review: Aarandale Guest House is under the same ownership as it has been for the last 10 years and we continue to provide comfortable, clean and affordable quality accommodation. The gardens are maintained even in the autumn when this guest stayed, a few leaves on the lawn is to be expected at this time of year).
All guests are invited to sign our guest book and the guest comments displayed on our website are typical of those we continue to receive verbally and in writing in our guest book.
We provide a continental breakfast that compares favourably with other guest houses and we always seek to accommodate any special breakfast requests of our guests.
The room in which the reviewer stayed has had a full spring clean to ensure it continues to fully meet quality standards.

We look forward to continuing to welcoming guests who appreciate a warm and friendly welcome and clean and comfortable accommodation..
