I stayed here for one night as part of a wedding party. You cannot fault this place at all. Nothing is too much trouble, everyone is pleasant and very helpful. Rooms are decorated to a high standard and the choice for breakfast was fantastic. This B&B would be 4 in a bed winners.

We had a very warm welcom and Fiona and her girls couldn't do enough for us. The guest house is stunning and beautifully kept - a credit to the team! We didn't want to leave and can't wait to return. We would definitely recommend St Mary's. Well done guys.
