Spent 2 nights at Rylstone Mere. Our hosts were very informative and helpful. Room was large and clean. Would defiantly book again. We didnt have breakfast as we wanted to go for a walk. Smelt good though. Ideal location. 2 min walk to the centre.

Friendly, clean and comfortable. Stayed there for one night the room was very comfortable. The whole experience can be improved by relocating and upgrading the TV, the TV was too high and too small. Breakfast was great!

Very cosy place with welcoming owners. The rooms have everything you need. The milk, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits were always replaced without having to asking. The rooms even had dvd players and or though we didn't have breakfast, breakfast gets delivered to your room. What more can you ask for.
