“1 night break in Seahouses”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The outside does not give a true picture of the quality of the accommodation in this B&B.Excellent location within walking distance of town centre. A polite and warm welcome from the owner and a lovely surprise when we saw the room. we stayed in room number 2 which was a kingsize room. The bed was huge with lovely quality bedding. The decor was modern and stylish, very clean. Flat screen wall mounted TV and lovely seating area with 2 comfy modern chairs and table, facilities including tea and coffee, biscuits and hairdryer. En suite had a bath and ovehead shower. Again very stylish decor and spotlessly clean. Only negative was that the room was uncomfortably warm or it may have been a very high tog rating on the quilt! A very pleasant stay. Good choice of breakfast and plenty of it. The owner is a very friendly yet professional host. Would definately recommend this place and would like to stay again. Stay was £70 for 2 on a bank holiday weekend and was worth every penny

Room Tip: I would request the king size room in room number 2

Was impressed by house at first arrival, off street parking and warm welcome even although we were early. First impressions of room were excellent. Staid in king size room for four nights and our first impressions were never changed. Excellent breakfast with choices and served by friendly helpful staff.

Would not hesitate to return here.

I stayed here for a week to visit the Farnes, Lindisfarne and explore the Northumberland coast. This is a spotlessly clean B&B and Simon takes care to ensure his guests are comfortable. He is really helpful about the local area and eateries. He delivers a substantial, basic English breakfast with excellent hot, crisp toast as well as the perfect fried egg! The single room is adequately appointed and comfortable and has the luxury of a large bathroom with bath as well as shower. The situation is good just a few hundred yards from the Main Street shops and harbour where the boats go daily to the Farnes. Would recommend and return.

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.
