“Clean but very basic.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

Stayed here for an overnight so we could go to the fringe.Owner friendly when checking in...never seen them after this....85 pounds for the room I thought was expensive...but very clean which was mt main concern.The Bed was awful I couldn't sleep which was ok as only one night but I couldn't have put up with it for any longer.Breakfast was non awful ...2 small boxes of cereal ,some fruit and 2 rolls in cling film....I would just advertise as room only rather than offer this.All in all clean and friendly but way overpriced for no breakfast .

My room was ok with portable tv but my workmate's different story his was outside owners living space plus tape over light switch and sign saying not to use lights beds are cheapest could obviously buy and no cooked breakfast what you get is 2 boxes of kids size cereal 2 kids carton's juice and quarter pint milk in a fridge in your room which is where you need to eat breakfast and nowhere to park at all and we had 2 vans not good at all right next to busiest street ever seen so can't even park round corner

I would not in any shape or form recommend this guest house, the money was took off us when we arrived and that was the last we seen of the guest house owner, we arrived by taxi and the owner seen us getting out of the taxi,yet we were asked did we have our own transport with us, and they talk bout the irish being stupid, whenever we were leaving we were waiting on a taxi outside, the guest house door was open at this time, only for the owner to come along and close the door behind us and not even so much as a good morning or did u have a good stay how rude, the noise of cars on the main road was constant all night, plus a air lock in their water system which blocked the toilet and whenever I was to have a shower I was told to turn the tap on on the sink to stop the airlock, we knew breakfast was contentental my goodness, had a choice of either cornflakes or fruit and fibre in the fridge a couple of yogurts and a couple of fruit pots, crossiants were wrapped up in cling film, I could go on alot more bout this place but I definately would not recommend it
