Wow! Such unusual generosity and friendliness. We read the negative reviews and were amazed to find somewhere so lovely. If your idea of hospitality is a stale travel lodge then this is not for you. If on the other hand you are seeking unique charm then your quids in. Cheap, clean and the coffee was strong and flowing!

We stayed at Carmel Court as it was recommended on a friend's wedding invitatiation. The location was perfect in close vicinity to the wedding venue. Driving up late on Friday night meant we wouldn't arrive until after 10.30am we phoned to inform the owner the estimated time of arrival due to her already having called during the day to find...

Stayed here for one night on my lands end to John o'groats cycling trip. The house and the facilities perhaps are in need of a little modernisation but to be honest that adds to the charm and attraction of the place. The house and it's setting are certainly impressive. The hosts are charming and welcoming and cook a great breakfast.

I have stayed at Carmel court a few times and would not hesitate in returning. Wonderful welcomes from mr and mrs Monaghan and brilliant service. If you are in the area pay a visit as Carmel court has an old world charm and lovely gardens. Other negative comments must be one off's as we have always had a pleasant stay

This B&B is one which made a perfect getaway for the family. Mr and Mrs Monaghan were lovely and welcoming. I would not let the bad reviews put you off. Had a brilliant fry up in the morning to set us off. and i would happily stay there longer. Lovely. Thanks Monaghan's.

As a regular traveller be it business and pleasure I have to say that I have never been made to feel as welcome or entertained than i did with my long weekend with the Monaghans. The house is set in beautiful surroundings, my room was large with lovely views and a very comfortable bed! If you are within a 100...

Though Terry is a helpful and friendly fellow, our experience of Carmel Court was poor. The room smelled of gasoline, was damp and dingy. The bathroom (not en-suite) even damper & dingier. Breakfast was fine. There were no pillowcases on the extra pillows.

We booked to stay here for our friends' wedding nearby. While booking and confirming the room details when we sent our deposit, we specifically requested en-suite (being 8 months pregnant, several trips are required to the bathroom during the night!!). On arrival we were shown to our room in the annex to the main house, which had a private bathroom...
