My wife and I spent three nights at the Monastery to celebrate our 24th Wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. Barrie welcomed us and made us feel at home. His breakfasts were excellent. No shortage on quantity of food either! Thanks Barrie for giving us maps of the area in which to visit. He knows those backroads that showed splendid fall colours.
The rooms were very clean, with lots of extra bedding/towels. As for noise - due to the construction of the monastery, the walls and floors are very thick and soundproof. We never heard a noise from any of the other rooms. As well, The Monastery is in a very quiet neighbourhood.
The sitting room was very comfortable and clean. We had access to internet, as well as both local and national newspapers provided.
There is much effort towards details here at the Monastery.
We would definitely recommend this B&B to others. We were very pleased and would stay there again. Thanks again Barrie.
