          This is a beautiful hostel with friendly staff in the centre of town. Great value and spotlessly clean throughout. Home made scones & soda bread with jam and tea or coffee on arrival, just what I needed after a day's cycle.

          Lovely old/traditional building with great facilities. Great big room with a huge soft bed. Staff were fantastic. Homemade scones were spot on after a long drive. Right next to the pubs and bars. Thanks for a great stay. X
