“Friendly and Helpful - A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2010

We were warmly welcomed by Ann when we arrived. She had a good cht over tea and biscuits to see if there was anything she could help us with. The room was clean and beautifully furnished. We had a great night's sleepas there was no traffic noise and were fed a great breakfast in a lovely room overlooking the garden. All in all a very pleasant experience. This is what a B&B should be like.

ok - this ticks all the boxes in what we were looking for in a high quality good value B&B.:
- The bed - absolutely to die for!
The sleep - sounder than seemed possible!
The breakfast...amazing full English - superb, but not really bad for you, or if it is, the guilt is only momentary!
But most of all what will stay with us for a long time- and makes this a "must stay" - is the hospitality of Ann and John. - From the post midnight arrival (because of delayed flight) - absolutely no problem - the warmth of the welcome, the sense that they create that this is "your home" while there - is I think, quite unique. The genuine sense that they will do what they can for you is very real.
A hidden gem.

We only stayed here after our original accomodation in Liverpool was cancelled. I was a little apprehensive at first by the location, but, WOW this place was a real find. Location ended up being fine as it was only a 5-10 min taxi from the city centre and there is a regular bus service to/from city centre as well.

The McCoy owners could not be more lovely and accomodating. Offered beers or coffee upon our arrival which we gladly accepted. The English breakfast was the best we've had at a B&B (honestly) and the owners regularly topped up the coffee/orange juice etc and kept offering food until our bellies could not fit any more in. Rooms were amazing - sunny, large and very comfy beds. Modern feel to them as well. The owner gave us some old newspapers on Beatles history which was great too. Definitely going back if we ever go back to liverpool!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2010

I was looking for inexpensive accommodation for a night for myself and my daughter; she had an interview early the following morning. Chose the Real McCoy based on location; it's just around the corner from JMU. Welcomed on arrival with hot coffee, and offered comfortable, spacious rooms. Then discovered that the interview was at a different campus, across town. Anne (McCoy, hence the guest house name) immediately offered to drive to the interview location to show us the way so that we wouldn't get lost the following morning. That successfully accomplished, we followed her recommendation for an evening meal (Halfway House) and were very well fed (excellent carvery and a couple of drinks, all for a tenner). Passed plenty of other restaurants nearby, so lots of choice. Returned to the Real McCoy for a quiet, comfortable night's sleep (residential area, so no traffic noise) followed by an excellent cooked breakfast. And all for £70!

I walked in and was made tea, offered biscuits and turkish delight. Then was told to help myself to a beer from the fridge! The room was clean as was the bathroom and the breakfast plentyfull. I would heartily recommend this as a place to stay, just at the end of the M62 and slightly out of town but not too far. You'll receive a warm northern welcome here :)
