I stayed at this B&B for one night on 2nd October, I booked it the day before! I had tried a few other B&B’s before this one but all were fully booked! I always use Trip Advisor before booking and have to say I wasn’t disappointed with this B&B!
The hosts were most welcoming and very accommodating to my dietary requirements (she even knocked £5 off as I wasn’t having the breakfast and was bringing my own due to being on a special diet!) The hosts have only had the B&B 18 months but you can tell they are trying their best to put their mark on it – I wish them well for the future!
I booked at double room at the cost of £27.50 per person per night (I didn’t think this was bad taking into account it was illuminations period!). This price included breakfast.
We were allocated room 5 and it was ideal for what we wanted. A double bed with a wardrobe, set of drawers and en suite shower room! The room had kettle and drinks – even some biccies (not that I was allowed to munch on them!!). My only issues with the room were that A) it was quite cold, I turned the radiator up to the highest option but it didn’t seem to warm the room and when we got in from Funny Girls the room was chilly – an excuse to snuggle up though!! B) The location of the TV was terrible. As it was a flat screen it was almost impossible to view the TV properly as with all flat screens you have to be face on or sitting from a distance, I found myself sitting at the other side of the room to view! This could be solved by simply lowering the TV and not having as high as it is!! Overall the room was lovely and clean! Should you need an iron you can get this from the ladies downstairs, the ironing board was located just outside room 5!!
I didn’t have the breakfast but my boyfriend did. We both went to the dining room which is at the front of the property. It was miserable looking out at the windy rainy cold weather but the same cant be said for the breakfast, which although looked small portion was more than lovely and my boyfriend munched it all down! He didn’t have the cereals, etc he just had the cooked breakfast!! He enjoyed so that was him happy! The hosts were accommodating in supplying me with hot water to enable me to have my special porridge – thanks girls!!
We didn’t have a drink at the B&B bar but from what I saw when we checked in it was a very small bar, so should you want somewhere to sit on an evening I would perhaps suggest a B&B / Hotel with a bigger lounge area. Other than that it was quite cosy!!
The B&B is on Dickson Road – perfect location for Funny Girls! Its literally about 5 – 7 mins walk straight up the road and there you have it! We went on the Friday night…….its somewhere I have always wanted to go but never got round to it. I have to say I thought the seated area was a little over priced! To stand was £6 but there were literally no seats in this area and to sit was £17.50 each! I didn’t want to pay £17.50 so opted for the £6 but ended up going back and up grading!!! I couldn’t bear the thought of standing from 7.30pm to nearly midnight!!
The others bars are easy to get to, probably about a 5-7 min walk in the opposite direction to Funny Girls! We didn’t go to any other bars but that wasn’t cos we didn’t want to its just cos we were tired after Funny Girls!!
A walk into town would probably take you about 15mins – there is a huge Primark so make sure you pack your walking shoes as you may be in a while!!
Can’t think of anything else to say about the B&B…....oh hang on!
There is no parking at the B&B but we were lucky enough to get a spot outside the fish & chip / kebab shop just down from the B&B and it didn’t cost us! If you can’t get parked here you will have to look at the side streets but I’m sure you will find a spot!
Anyway, that’s the review finished!
If you have any questions just ask!
I won’t hesitate in staying here in the future!
