Reviewed 27 June 2013

This review is for the rooms at Jo's only. I have posted another review for the cafe.

The rooms are dank, dirty, outdated, cold, and in disrepair. The shower was clogged, toilet did not flush well, bed was very old and uncomfortable. It was the kind of place where you did not want to take off your socks because the floor was so dirty.

I gave a 2 rating simply because it was so cheap. Had the price been any higher, I would have given a 1.

My husband and I stayed in Jo's in January. Fantastic location, room was spotless and very adequate for what we needed. The cafe is amazing with the most delicious home baked goods. Had the best hot chocolate ever there! Jo is so welcoming and we could have sat in the cafe all day watching the world go by! We left a few pounds heavier as Jo' s baking is hard to resist. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed in April 2011 with a friend. We were the only one's for that night, so Jo was kind enough to offer us each our own room for the same as sharing a room. Comfortable rooms, especially after a long day walking around and getting lost and driving down a sidewalk trying to find Charles Fort. Close to many restaurants and pubs.

Jo also had 2 lovely dogs on premise, but were outside. Jo was super friendly. Her cafe located adjacent to the rooms is lovely. Had a great selection of baked goods and really good coffee. Will stay again. Thanks Jo!

I usually start off the reviews of budget accommodations at 3 and go up or down from there. I went up on the review particularly because of the friendliness at which Jo treats you. Staying here is really like you're staying at your friends guesthouse. Nothing fancy, just a good bed and bathroom, but in a great location of town. What's best is you wake up to the smell of her cafe just downstairs. I had a great full Irish breakfast and we bought one of the banana-nut scones to go, before we headed off to our next destination. Good stay, great cafe.

Jo's Rooms were very clean and bright. The bathroom was a bit small, but very adequate. The location was excellent! We were able to go about town. We were able to park right in front of the building for the night and there were no worries! Just a great, decent place to stay!

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the street side if you need absolute silence for sleeping.
