“Very clean homely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

As soon as we arrived it was clear that the owner was conscientious about cleanliness. There was a polite notice asking us to remove our shoes and slippers were provided. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen was clean and tidy. The service was very friendly and more than helpful when we had questions. In the rear garden the was a 'chalet' or children's playhouse. This was a lovely wooden building that looked straight out of the Swiss alps! This is not used as a room but the owner stated that many people request to stay here for the tranquility of backing onto woodland. All in all a very good stay with the added bonus of off road parking. Not bad for the edge of London!

Well located for town centre and train services in to london, located in a quiet road. The rooms were of a good standard and the owner was very pleasant and helpful with any problems!

I stayed there and here's the load down. Jackie is ok but quirky - if she likes you yr ok. The house is full of little paper notes do this don't do that - which is really sooo irritating! First odd thing is the note telling you to take off your shoes. No breakfast - unless you do it yourself.

So it's self catering NOT B&B.

Rooms; B A S I C (there was a blood spot on my linen... sorry but that's not quite on the money!)
35 quid a night for a dorm low res cheap bed.

It's all a rash of 1973 decor. Hmmm.

But for 35 quid - fair enough just... good for builders working away etc-
But those notes!

Room Tip: Don't take the 'Lodge' ... it's at the end of the garden. Honestly!

jaqueen3, Owner at Mount Joy Guest House, responded to this review, 17 May 2012
Yes, we really do appreciate feedback. We have never claimed to be a B & B. We specialise in offering self catering within the environment of a guest house as many customers really appriate this facility as they can also use the kitchen in the evening and not have the expense of eating out. Sorry that you found the notes irritating but they are for the customers benefit so that they can find things easily and also certain basic house rules for everyone's comfort. The 'Lodge' at the bottom of the garden was never intended for customers, it was the children's playhouse. Unfortunately some people absolutely love it and specially request it. We used to reluctanly let it go if requested but we prefer not to use it as it is our private space. Hope this clears a few things up.

Don't know what the previous comment was all about, my husband and I stayed here last summer when visiting family nearby. The owner Jackie was very nice and helpful and went out of her way to help us when we needed to get somewhere and had no clue!
