We stayed for one night in the large "super king" en suite double room on the first floor during a cycle tour along the Northumberland coast. We booked at fairly short notice and were lucky to get in. The hosts, Simon and Carol, were very helpful on the phone (we had particular requirements for off street bike storage and a bed large enough to accommodate a very tall person). Upon arrival we were helped with our luggage and even given extra plastic bags to cover our seats/handlebars. The room was very clean and enormous, with ample space for us to spread out all our kit. It included the extra large bed, a sofa and large wall mounted TV. The bed itself and the pillows were really comfortable and helped ensure we had an excellent night's sleep. The en suite included a bath with a shower, WC and washbasin. We also had tea and coffee making facilities. In the morning we were treated to a choice of cereal, juice, yogurts and cooked breakfast - the scrambled egg with smoked salmon on toast was really tasty. All in all an excellent quality B&B in a great location (short walk to Supermarket and the town centre/harbour) with friendly and attentive hosts. We hope to visit again when next in the vicinity of Seahouses.

Lovely rooms, very clean and spacious with all facilities. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts Simon and Carole were very friendly and helpful. The Bed and Breakfast is two minutes away from the centre so ideal for walking into town. Would definately recommend.

The Mainson House B&B provides excellant accomodation and great breakfasts.
The location is ideal for exploring Northumberland and the coast.
Short walk to Harbour and coast.
The room quality is very very high and rooms are very generouly sized.
The owners are very knowledgable about the area and provided good information for places to visit.
We would definitley stay there again.

Having tried and failed to secure accommodation in over a dozen B & B's in and around Seahouses, we were beginning to despair when we chanced on the website for Mainston House.

It seemed very pleasant and they were lovely to deal with when I rang to book, though I was hoping to book the larger double room. When we arrived we were delighted to find the "smaller" room was much larger than it looked with plenty of room for a king sized bed, two leather chairs, wardrobe etc etc AND still plenty of room to swing the proverbial cat!

If the other double is much "larger" you can only wonder at the size, perhaps more like a "suite".

Could breakfast measure up? Indeed it could, superb food in a lovely room overlooking the rear garden, served by mine host, a happy smiling start to the day!

A superb find - we will definitely be back.

i stayed at mainston house while travelling alone in july. carol and simon were very welcoming. i had a single room but it was no cupboard, the room was a generous size with a bathroom as big as the bedroom, and a bath! the room was airy and clean and everything you could need was provided. breakfasts were freshly made and there was lots of it, no stinting here. i would recommend mainston house without reservation.
