When we booked this we were a little unsure due to previous reviews.
We arrived after 4.00pm (4.00pm was stated as check in time). There was no one available to show us our room. We rang the number shown in the hall and were informed that there had been an emergency and that we should use room 1 and the key was in the door.
The room on first impression was lovely however, we then noted the following:
Mould on the bottom of the blinds and a large area of mould behind the shutters (good job neither of us are asthmatic or have breathing difficulties)
The noise from the toilet system (saniflo) and other rooms
Dust/cobwebs on the walls
There were very small bath towels and only one hand towel (I appreciate that this sounds picky) but from a female perspective a good size bath towel and smaller towel for my hair goes a long way.
The room was cold and the heating only appeared to come on later in the evening. To be fair it was warm at night.
Shower was good if you could reach the controls. I don't consider myself to be small however, the shower screen was stuck fast (couldn't move it out of the way to reach shower/bath taps), good job my other half is v tall with long arms.
(Again, maybe picky) the tea/coffee facilities appeared good however, they didn't appear to have be replaced from the previous occupant. The (2 tea bags) and bits such as speciality teas (2)seemed well handled (not by us). Again in fairness this was replaced the following day.
Breakfast was good (full English) altho we not given a menu or other options.
We heard guests arriving the following evening and they had the same problems as us in that there was nobody to greet/show them to their rooms (not sure of the excuse for this)
Overall
Poor in relation to meet/greet from owners
Reasonably comfy bed and clean linen
Good breakfast
Great location
Poor cleanliness (ie mould, cobwebs/dust)
Towels too small (Picky I know)
Saniflo noisy
Reasonable price to a degree

Very pleasant room spacious and well fitted out with a very good en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices available. I would recommend this guest house to anyone - there were also families staying all seemed happy with their stay.

We booked 2 nights and left after 1. Weve got photos and may add later but Room 8 was bad. Shower could do with a scrape to remove black scum and wiring painting just leave you with impression that owners dont care. Other rooms may be better but if you get offered number 8 dont bother. Saniflo loos are quite unique and noisy. Seems earlier reviewers have issues with these not working. We went to Lindisfarne the day after and met with occupants of Room 7. No its not us-we are not narky-in fact never done a review in this country before but do yourself a favour and pass this one by. Breakfast was good and linen clean but the rest might have done in the 70's but the worlds moved on since then. Treacherous.

Due to emergency circumstances (the owner had just come out of hospital with a new baby after a c. Section) we had to phone when we arrived and let ourselves in to our lovely spacious ground floor double room. Our shower room was a bit compact but did the job. We liked the fact that we had a sofa and soft seat to sit on to watch telly. We discovered the Queens Head very near where we ate the two nights we stayed. It was friendly and the food lovely. Our breakfast was fine and if you want to bring in a carry out for an evening meal you are free to use the diningroom. Will use this guest house if we are in the area again.
