Lovely couple run the house, our room was 6 flights of stairs up, but the view of the harbour was breathtaking, the bed was soooo comfy,, the shower and toilet across the hall was rather dated, my husband is average 6ft 2" he practically hit his head on the shower cubicle ceiling, very tight in there too, couldn't bend over...

Dear JulesK, thank for your review. The room you selected is our ONLY non- ensuite. The ceiling height in the shower room is 6ft 10ins, which should allow plenty of clearance. (I am not sure you can say 6ft 2 ins is an AVERAGE height) The bar of soap was not ours, could only have been 1 day old (previous...

Another fantastic stay with Jim and Denise who are such perfect hosts ensuring our stay was perfect and as usual, it was. The breakfast once again was the best in the country. For the harbour, shopping, night life and eating out, there is no better place to stay. We are back again in September and again after that.

I have stayed at Aaran House twice now. The most recent stay was in the lovely king room overlooking the beach and the seaview was wonderful. My room was clean, pleasant and had everything I needed. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and were kind enough to provide breakfast earlier than the normal time because I had to leave early....

What a treat it was, having stayed at Aaran house many times I wouldn't stay anywhere else. So when the girlfriend dropped a hint that she would like a few days away for her birthday.....why great, I said! I know just the place. Now, fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it her birthday will always be around...
