Adorable B&B run by an even more adorable lady. Mai could not have made me feel more at home. I especially recommend booking the "Pool room" which has its own little terrace overlooking the back garden and pool area (ideal for a nightcap!). Lovely breakfast offering something for everyone's palate. I would definitely stay here again!

Mai's place is a wonderful gem made even more enjoyable by Mai and her staff. Her garden is beautiful. The breakfasts are beyond fabulous and if we'd had more time, we would have stayed longer. Overall, the property was lovely, very clean and the staff made the experience even more enjoyable. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay...

Mai and her staff are delightful and very welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble and she helped us book excellent restaurants for our evening meals before we arrived. The B&B is spacious, very comfortable and the pool is a bonus in the heat. The breakfast is outstanding, so don't miss it and Mai is full of life and always chatty....

With her Irish sense of humor and nothing is too much attitude. Mai's is the place to stay. Accommodation spacious, spotless and very comfortable. A dinner booking was arranged with no fuss and we went on our way after a hearty breakfast the following morning. We'll be back for sure.

After travelling long hours, Mai's guesthouse is so welcoming it removes all of the stress! This was our second visit and Mai's didn't disappoint. She welcomed us with open arms and a big hug and we chatted way past her bedtime!! Mai's breakfast, was of course, delicious. I had the scrambled eggs with sour cream and chives ala Gordon Ramsey....

Beautiful place and rooms are comfortable and spotless! An ekstra is the nice pool to cool off on hot days. There is a fridge, kettle and tv in the rooms. Close to all the restaurant. Wonderful host that will make all the local arrangements and bookings for dinner.

Céað míle fáilte. A hundred thousand welcomes. These Gaelic words of welcome said it all. They were a perfect reflection of the level of services and only surpassed by the hospitality offered by the hostess!

What a treat this stay was! The location could not be more central. The room was spacious and well-appointed, en-suite, and contained a small refrigerator (perfect for wine!). Mai is a delightful host, friendly, entertaining, and attentive to one's every need. The excellent breakfast is served outside in the courtyard, not far from the pool, which provided a welcome cooling-off...

Visiting Prince Albert without staying at Mai's would be daft. Mai looks after your every need with aplomb, great breakfasts & huge character. Mai's is really easy to find, right in the middle of town with bars & restaurants all round, but quiet, peaceful & comfortable. Hugely recommended.
