the double "kingsize"room was fantastic.clean,comfortable tastefully decorated.Simon was the perfect host,breakfast tasty.occasional chat,knowledgable but not pushy.Short walk into Seahouses,We often go away for long weekends and i can honestly say that Mainston is the best weve ever stayed.

Hi , ive just recently spent 4 nights at Maiston House B&B, staying in the single room and i can fully reccomend this to anyone looking for excellent single accomodation. Simon is a great host,serving a great breakfast, along with the usual Tea ,Coffee & Biscuits in the room :) in an immaculately clean house ( how he keeps the beige carpets so clean is a miracle :) and the single room and en-suite are quite spacious ( especially the bathroom) compared to others i have stayed in previously (it even has proper dividing walls,unlike some cardboard box B&B"s ive stayed in before :( it has on -site parking and is just a few minutes walk into Seahouses centre and the rest of Northumberland awaits.
Anyone booking here will return again in my opinion
I certainly hope to return soon , and hopefully try the Kingsize out :)

Just spent a week based in Seahouses, staying at Mainston House. Can't fault it. Simon was friendly and gave good advice, breakfasts were excellent, and the single room (with spacious bathroom) is better and bigger than most other single rooms. Mainston House is within a stone's throw of nearly all Seahouses' pubs, restaurants, etc and the boats to the islands.

One of my favourite b & b's in the UK.
We always try and stay at Simon's place when we visit Seahouses; it's immaculately clean, great breakfasts and the beds so comfy - go for the king size room, it is sumptuous. You can be at the harbour in five minutes and listen to his advice about good places to eat and places of interest to visit.
We hope to be back next year.

Room Tip: All are good
