Stayed here with my wife and son for one night in May. Whilst Bray is a good place to visit it is full of your typical seaside resort B&Bs and run down hotels. Not this place. The Old Rectory is a real gem. As it’s a couple of miles away from the front you would have never found it without Trip Advisor. It’s when you are staying in places like Bray that you really appreciate Trip Advisor as after reading the previous excellent reviews we decided to stay here instead of taking our chances with the many B&Bs and hotels on the promenade.
Really glad we did as this B&B was perfect for us. Because it’s a couple of miles from the front it’s in a really quiet location, tucked away from the main road behind lots of trees in its own private gardens. However, it’s quite hard to spot when driving along the main road. If you’re coming from Bray its approx. 200 meters passed the film studios, both on your right, just before the road bends to the right. If you pass a small SPAR on the right hand side you have just gone passed it!
There is plenty of space to park in the grounds.
Kay is very friendly. The two rooms we had were very clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious and warm. The breakfast was fab. What more do you require from a Fab B&B?
If we ever return to Bray we would most definitely stay here again and would look forward to it.
