We stayed three nights here. Very convenient for the city which is about a 15 minute easy walk away. Lovely cooked breakfast with generous portions. Comfortable rooms which are a little on the small size. The ensuite was very compact which didn't bother us but it may bother others if you need a bit more room. Breakfast was a little...

We had a very pleasant stay, the room was clean and well looked after. Breakfast was very tasty and lots of options! They were even able to accommodate us when needing to alter our plans due to illness. Highly recommended stay! A very friendly welcome and stay!

Great little guesthouse just a 10 minute walk to Monk Bar and into the city centre. Friendly hosts, comfortable room and fabulous breakfasts. Parking is available if a little tight but this was no problem as once we'd checked in we didn't need the car until day of departure as everywhere is within easy walking distance.
