“Superb B & B !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

This is a smashing B & B located right opposite the falls and impressive bridge.

With splendid views and a very warm welcome from Olga and Tony, this is a lovely place to stay, especially if you book 'Lorn' which overlooks the sights and has a small lounge as well as the comfortable en-suite.
There is also a guest's lounge and conservatory ........ breakfasts were beautifully prepared and delicious.
If you want to learn to kayak or want a kayaking adventure, then Tony is your man !

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: 'Lorn' is a lovely en-suite with it's own small sitting room - see their website

This is by far one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed at. Clean, modern and welcoming. But the icing on the cake was the PANCAKES! It was so nice, and a relief after travelling for two weeks, to have a varied breakfast menu. Thanks for the recipe Olga - I've actually bought the book as well. And I would love your bread recipe too - sorry Tony! Will definitely be back.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Olga was a fantastic host. Tea and delicious home made cake on arrival was much appreciated after a long drive up from Kent.

The rooms were lovely, well decorated and spotless. We had a great room with the view of the river. Lovely evenings spent in the conservatory watching the otters in the river and other wildlife.

Breakfasts were fantastic! Our only wish was to have stayed longer. We hope to return one day soon. Thanks Olga.

Olga made us so welcome and after a long drive the tea and homemade cake were great. Everything was spotless and it was the attention to detail that made Strumhor an outstanding place to stay. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend staying here to our family and friends and the breakfasts are fantastic. We will be back!

My wife and I have just had two super weekends staying at Strumhor on 3/4 and 10/11 August. Both visits reinforced our previous excellent experience. Clean, airy and comfortable rooms. Really nice views and mouth watering breakfasts. Olga and Tony are always welcoming and we are definitely coming back!

We stayed at Strumhor in June and had a wonderful time. We ended up booking our room last minute but Olga was very accommodating. Our room was spotless, nicely decorated, and had a lovely view. Breakfast was also fantastic. All the other good reviews for this place pretty much sum up our experience as well. We also partook in the the sea kayaking offered through Seafreedom and it was amazing, Tony was a great (and patient!) guide. Can't wait to come back one day.
