Family traveled here for a funeral. They were frozen. The windows were a poor fit and the noise from the trains was no help. Finally there was no food. No breakfast in the winter months. Will not use this location, which was not the first choice again.

I arrived without my luggage, the airline having lost it. Monorene house really helped me out, treating me well, giving me some advice, helping me get new clothes, and literally giving me some clothes to wear. The location is perfect, right by the train station. A fantastic experience with a professionally-handled staff.

Stayed here numerous times. I think we have stayed in most of the rooms. Always get a warm welcome. Right across the road from the new train station. But we did not hear any train noise Clean rooms, comfy beds. Joan does a fab breakfast. Malcolm always has a story to tell. Lovely couple Looking forward to returning soon.

our hosts Malcolm & Joan were exceptionally friendly & helpful. Malcolm very kindly mapped out a day tour for us which was most enjoyable. The rooms were very clean & the breakfasts were great. We couldn't ask for nicer people to stay with, & would certainly stay there again. An extra bonus was the train station had just opened before...

My better half stayed here on a golf weekend. Accommodation was very clean and the hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast was fabulous, choice of cereals etc along with full cooked breakfast to order......Malcolm will even pour you a glass of orange juice if you ask him nicely 😀 Location was great, very handy for the town centre and train station....
