Me and my family spent two nights here. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a very clean room overlooking the courtyard. Would definitely stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a few days, and I wish I had paid better attention to the negative reviews. The house itself seems run down and in need of some TLC. In our room, the wallpaper was peeling, and always cold, even with the radiator on, as the windows let in more air than they kept out. Breakfast was a simple affair, which wasn't a problem. However, our room was not attended to (trash was not taken out, bed was left unmade), which was an issue. For the price we paid (almost what we paid for our B&B in London), we could've done much better. Don't waste your money on this place.

Like all BnBs in Ireland, Scotland and Britain, this BnB will not turn the heat on. The owners are beffudled and bewildered as to how to turn it on and will do it when (insert scapegoat) comes by. The place is FREEZING <- I have stayed at over 300 BnBs in the last few years and I know the pre canned story from the start.

The rooms smell like mildew / mold especially near the restrooms. Carpets are filthy. The beds are comfortable. The owners are nice people and very helpfull and I believe they may be renovating. By European low standards, this place is a palace for the price. Alot of Europeans are tolerate and well trained on what to expect and to not complain, not me.

We stayed there for a week in the end of November. The place is very basic, but well - maintained and reasonably clean. If there was something missing ( like towels sometime, or the maid could miss to clean your room), don't hesitate to address it with Nadja, the place owner, she is quite helpful and will try to fix what she can for you. The breakfast is basic too but enough to start your day. Overall, it's a reasonable value for money, unlike many other places in the area, just make sure to lower your expectations and consider it as "just place to rest and sleep", then you won't be disappointed.

Stayed for 3 nights in April 2010. Good place for short stay, Breakfast simple, but adequate, room & bathroom smallish, but fine for short stay. We were out enjoying the city all day, so room to sleep in and we didn't spend time there in daytime. Owner cheerful & helpful. Good communication before booking.

Room Tip: ask for room with onsuite bathroom

we booked the minto hotel for our daughters christening on the 1st of may.
The whole experience was absolutley magnificent.
Tracy and her team are a credit to the company.We were expertly guided throught the whole process in organising the food,hall theme etc by nicki who made us feel like nothing was a problem,even though we felt we were the most demanding people in the world to make the day special.nothing was a problem at all
The whole day went perfectly from arriving and being outside in the beautiful back gardens to the brilliant buffet which was served.
the staff seem to be invisible but right there when you need them exactly what you want in a function.
Our guests commented on how relaxed and special the whole day was and how they would not hesitate to book the minot for any future special occasion they were having
we cannot thank enought tracy,nicki and their brilliant team enough for making our princess day the best day ever. thanks again x Robert,karen& lila Hartley

Nice little place, ideal if you just want to come to a comfy, cleam bed to sleep. The owner is a sweet lady, and was very accomodating, no issues with coming in late after a night out and can give you tips about where to go etc. Breakfast was fine, nothing gourment, but filling.
Minus would be- well nothing if you know you arent going to a 5* luxuary hotel. It is what it is- bed and breakfast, good and clean.
