Exactly what you want from a B&B. Comfy bed, clean, quiet but central location, friendly staff and good breakfast. I mentioned when booking that I was vegetarian and they had vegie sausages ready for me both mornings. Shower was not very powerful if I was going to be picky.

This is a good choice if you are on a tight budget. Rooms are clean and reasonably well equipped. Breakfast is good and staff are very friendly. It is conveniently located within a short stroll to the city centre. Parking is available in front of the house for free.

Very clean, staff were excellent, room a bit small for the price, breakfast spot on. Ideal for the town centre, nice and warm. What else can I say it's a bed and breakfast. Ideal for a short break, been before many times.

I had a great stay at St. Mary's. The staff were very friendly. I asked where I could find a laundromat, and they kindly offered to do some washing for me. The breakfast was delicious with a good variety. The fruit salad was outstanding. It was a cozy place to stay, and I will look them up again next time...

My husband and I stayed at St. Mary's Guesthouse in September, 2016. The positives are a very capable and outgoing hostess, a good breakfast, and location close enough to walk to the train station and into the historic part of town. While the breakfast room was pleasantly decorated, our room on the first floor needed updating. The room was clean...

Fabulous location on a quiet street but a short pleasant walk along the river to the centre. Parked right outside too. Incredibly hospitable and friendly staff. Comfortable spotless rooms and a good breakfast. Will stay again .
