Travelling alone, I had one of the smaller rooms, but I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the en suite. Much better than some hotels I have stayed at. Everything very clean and smart.

Helen provides a very good Guest Information folder, which contains a lot of guidance on different places to eat etc. She had even included the safe crossing times to Holy Island for the current month. It was that sort of attention to detail that really set this place apart.

Breakfast was very good indeed, with fresh fruit salad (kiwi fruit, strawberries, blueberries etc), followed by a delicious cooked breakfast made from good, fresh ingredients. One of the best breakfasts of my holiday.

There are no fine views from the property, but this did not in any way detract from the excellent accommodation.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Mainston House. Helen is a wonderful host, so friendly and helpful. We arrived from Dublin at lunchtime for a wedding the next day and she allowed us to take our room immediately. We had the large bedroom at the front of the house. We slept really well. The accommodation is first class and is spotless. The breakfast was amazing. We would highly recommend staying at Mainston House. Thank you Helen!

Room Tip: We chose room 3 its at the front of the house and is very spacious.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. We had a light,airy room with a huge double bed and one single. Both very comfortable. Lovely en-suite with stacks of hot water, towels etc. There was an excellent choice of food for breakfast and the cooked food we had was lovely. I can highly recommend the Eggs Benedict.
Helen is a lovely host with loads of ideas if you are stuck for somewhere to go. The walk on the beach to Bamburgh is lovely if the tide is right (impossible if not!) I would certainly recommend friends to stay here, and hope to return later in the year. There are several pubs and restaurants within walking distance. When we stayed there was free wi-if. Thank you Helen

We have stayed here many times when Simon and Carol were the hosts. This was the first time since Helen took over. Everything was just as good as before with some additions such as a much wider choice at breakfast. I particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. The creation of a lounge area for guests is a nice touch, warm and cosy with a wood burning stove. We stayed in the super king bedroom that was very clean, spacious and attractive. Helen was really friendly and made us very welcome. The location is very good with the harbour a short stroll away. We would not hesitate to stay here again

Room Tip: The super king bedroom is great but had a look in the other double room and that was also very spaci...

We have stayed in many B+B's but this one is by far the best, The lovely owner Helen made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The room was large and airy with a comfortable bed and excellent power shower. We stayed two nights and had delicious breakfasts both mornings. We hope to return next year.
