Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The excessive ornaments and clutter was too much, but that's a personal preference. The rest of it was just awful on anyone's level. Room was cold and smelled strongly of damp. After sitting on the bed and chair discovered it was very damp too. 3 large spiders and webs in the room. Really strange smell in the bathroom. 'Stuff' came up the drain in to the sink when water was going the drain? Floor looked like it had not been vacuumed as there were bits everywhere. In the morning found the duvet cover had many stains, hadn't check the night before. Worst B&B experience in Ireland.

Not your average b&b. Furnished with quirky antiques. We had a nice rear room with river view. The choice at breakfast was huge. Genial host. Bar in hotel over the road. Parked right outside Recommended

Stayed in this B+B . While it appeared interesting and quirky with its overstuffed penchant for bric-a-brac and antiquary, in reality, it was a grimy and uncomfortable place. The room was dark , damp, and dirty. The bed was adorned in layers of dusty tapestry like offering and multitudes of odd dusty and grimy cushions and pillows. We removed these outer coverings in the hope of finding fresh, clean bed linen underneath, but sadly, this was not the case. The "duvet" was a worn-out limp lifeless blanket covered in a grubby cover .The sheet was a stained baubled wrinkled ill-fitting brushed cotton which sat on a jumbled mess of foam mattress toppers on a 4 foot "double" bed. There were 2 other beds in the room . I uncovered one to find it dirty and previously slept in . En - Suite: dated and dirty . We did not use the shower or towels - and that has never happened anywhere else. In the morning, a black centipede made its way across the grimy carpet. The bin had rubbish, which was not our rubbish. Breakfast: There was an eclectic assortment of fruits nuts cheeses yogurts , and jams in all kinds of crockery and platters. There was a menu to order hot food . Given the general state of the accommodation, we choose carefully . The cooked food was reasonable, as was the tea served in an ornate silver pot - all quirky but OK . If you do not want to share a table, then this is not for you. Certainly the most unusual place we ever stayed in, certainly quirky, but a definite no return customer . The old recommendations. or awards no longer apply to this establishment.

In a world full of generic,bog standard,city hotels , it's So nice to stay somewhere with character and beauty. Myself and my partner had the best stay here. The whole house and bedroom was genuine vintage with antiques everywhere to enjoy. The room was warm and comfortable, clean and instant hot water. The breakfast was out of this world, the photos don't it justice. The hosts were polite and interesting but not intrusive. We will definitely be coming back here !!! If you enjoy average,boring, generic, uninteresting, impersonal accommodation, this is not the place for you..and explains the very puzzling bad reviews. It's amazing!

Booked 2 nights via booking.com with free cancellation. Could not make 1 of the nights due to work so tried to cancel on booking.com website but was directed to contact guest house directly. Phoned & cancelled 1 night, 4 weeks before my stay. When I got there they charged me for both nights saying they never got any call. A complete lie! Will never return.

Arrived here late as flight delayed 10,30pm so not late no way of getting in so had to ring the hotel, eventually someone came to the door and told us to sshhh ! I asked for a bathroom in the room after reading reviews that you have to request this otherwise it’s separate ! Guess what separate bathroom !! Very old and cluttered, breakfast was lovely but so much on the table you couldn’t move, and sat amongst other guests !! Very strange place !!

Stayed at this accommodation for two nights. Extremely pleasant hosts. The bedroom was small and warm with en-suite. Comfortable bed. The breakfast was amazing,with loads of choice for hot food. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, nuts and seeds were self service. Every corner and crevice was adorned with antiques and ornaments. Thank you for a lovely weekend at such a reasonable rate

This B&B thrives on a long-faded reputation. It's not about the taste or style of the decor (it's like staying in a broccant shop). It's about cleanliness and detail. The sheets are full of stains, the shower is in a pathetic state and the whole room is dusty. There are dead spiders in the room and in the shower. Breakfast is charming and plentiful but after a sleepless night in a dirty bed you don't really have an appetite as the tablecloth hasn't been changed for ages and again dust dust dust. The ground floor rooms smelled mouldy and damp. The internet is good and the self-centred service of the host is amusing. But we would definitely not stay there again.
