“Fabulous experience, above the ordinary service!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

They totally went out of their way late in the evening to come and pick me up from the station rather than let me pay doublé with the local taxis. The room was lovely, enough tea, coffee, biscuits etc for a family of 6 :-) . Perfect place to stay for the airport, and the Little town is really nice too. Thanks again guys for the well above average care. I recommend this place 100%.

We stayed one night whilst visiting nearby Talliston House.

Very warm and friendly welcome, helpful staff who went out of their way to make us feel at home.

The room was large, clean and comfy - we had the pink room. The shower was a little low on pressure but worked well otherwise.

The breakfast was tasty and served in a very pretty, sunny space - and the guest lounge is very nice too. The garden is stunning.

I would recommend this very highly.

Stayed with Aine33 and some of our extended family. The house was within walking distance for us to the pubs and restaurants in the town. The accommodation was as I expected. I would stay here again. The morning breakfast was excellent.

A lovely end stay after a great holiday. Great value with car parking whilst away. Comfortable homely environment and very friendly owners, Ian and Helen. Fantastic breakfast. Compliments to the chef. Will definitely stay again when we fly from Stansted. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Harwood Guest House Monday 30th September for two nights till Wednesday 2nd October. The company I worked for booked the accommodation for me and my work colleague. Overall it was a lovely stay could not fault the place. My work company has put me up in some pretty awful places and this definitely not one of them. My room was a decent size and was spotlessly clean. Nice tea and coffee making facilities and free biscuits which were changed daily. Free Wi-Fi which was of a decent speed and connectivity. The bathroom was spotless and the shower was a decent water pressure and nice and hot. The service and good old fashioned hospitality was excellent thanks to Ian. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. He offered my work colleague an electric heater to go in his room as he was aware he did not have one. He also served us excellent breakfasts with top quality service offering us extra toast. What I liked most about the stay was the friendly and helpfulness of Ian who created a sense of good old fashioned hospitality to our stay. Would definitely recommend.
