One one night stay, but left happy. The building was immaculate. The owners cheerful and friendly. The room was just like an expensive hotel very clean and comfortable. You were made to feel welcome and free to do your own thing. Thank you to the owners for a great stay

I cannot praise the lady who helped me at The Mount high enough. I am attending a friend's wedding this afternoon and the lady who cleans the rooms helped me with a laundry problem. Comes with being a clumsy individual. The Mount is a beautiful guest house, with really lovely rooms, beautifully finished. With lots of tasteful attention to detail.... More

Lovely overnight stay in twin room. Very clean and nice welcome with tea and biscuits on the patio. Shame the beds were so comfortable that we overslept and had to leave without breakfast. Bit of a small car park but plenty of places on the road. Many thanks to kind host.
