“Excellent”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

My wife and myself had a short break at Mainston this week. We had the family room as it was the only room available, it was vey spacious, comfortable and had all that you could want for. Helen the owner is very helpful and welcoming. The place itself was absolutely spotless. The choice of breakfast was wide, I went both days for the "Big English" , what a breakfast, 2sausages,3bacon rashers, 2 fried eggs,beans,mushrooms,tomatoes and fried bread. It was freshly cooked and delicious, didn't need to eat anything for the rest of the day. Any criticism non whatsoever.
Any time we are in that part of the country again it will be our first port of call.

Brought our granddaughter to experience the Farne Isles but I think she was more impressed with the bathroom and hot chocolate. This B & B was brilliant. Lovely room, very clean and above average quaility of bed linen and towels. Breakfast was of high quality and quantity. Fresh fruit was lovely. Helen had only just taken over the B & B but her service was 5*. Would recommened all ages to stay here for a warm and friendly welcome.

A return visit to Seahouses and we chose Mainston house again for its location and quality. Arrived to discover it was under new management. However especially as it was only the 3rd week of ownership I am please to say still excellent. Lovely big room, huge bed and great breakfast. A very warm welcome and great suggestions of where to eat and what to see and do. Will come back again.

I just can't fault this place. Everything works, thanks to the attentive professionalism of Simon the owner. Spotless, comfortable, great breakfast and a warm welcome. A standard for others to follow.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently, in the single room. The room was spotless, with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was also a good size, and had both bath and shower. Plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space too. The host was very friendly and helpful. Location great too. Would definately stay here again.

Better than most hotels! Friendly helpful host who even helped carry the luggage in! Parking available and the guest house is and only very short walk to the centre. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, good sized en suite ground floor room with good quality bedding and towels, tea making facilities and flat screen T.V. Great choice of breakfasts, cooked to order. Without doubt when we are back in Seahouses, this is where we will stay.

Room Tip: We only saw the room we were allocated

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
