If you like a friendly welcome, excellent food, a clean room and value for money, this is the place for you!
I had the pleasure of staying at Cherry Villa for a weekend during a visit to Newcastle for a friend's wedding and cannot fault it.
Within seconds of lugging my suitcase through the door I was given a warm welcome from Gabrielle, who immediately offered me some home-made scones with home-made jam. To me, welcomes don't get much better than that!
The room was clean, neat, tidy and comfortable with a TV and decent space to hang clothes up.
It had its own private - again it was very clean, neat and tidy.
After dumping my bags, I went down to the breakfast room for coffee, scones and jam which were excellent.
The room is full of thank you cards from guests, and it is easy to understand why.
Gabrielle is quite the cook and I would thoroughly recommend sampling an Ulster fry at breakfast time - a hearty plate of good, honest food which will keep you going.
Gabrielle was also very helpful in providing a map of the town, and with your own front door key and the freedom to come and go as you please, there was no pressure to feel like you had to be back by certain time.
This was handy when the wedding reception went on into the early hours of the morning.
Then there's the matter of price - you get all this for £35 per night, which is a fraction of the cost of some of the other places in town.
I would have a hard time believing there are any better B&Bs in town, and would strongly recommend staying at Cherry Villa.
