Mount Joy Guest House
Ranked #1 of 1 Crayford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 December 2011

I stayed there and here's the load down. Jackie is ok but quirky - if she likes you yr ok. The house is full of little paper notes do this don't do that - which is really sooo irritating! First odd thing is the note telling you to take off your shoes. No breakfast - unless you do it yourself.

So it's self catering NOT B&B.

Rooms; B A S I C (there was a blood spot on my linen... sorry but that's not quite on the money!)
35 quid a night for a dorm low res cheap bed.

It's all a rash of 1973 decor. Hmmm.

But for 35 quid - fair enough just... good for builders working away etc-
But those notes!

Room Tip: Don't take the 'Lodge' ... it's at the end of the garden. Honestly!

Yes, we really do appreciate feedback. We have never claimed to be a B & B. We specialise in offering self catering within the environment of a guest house as many customers really appriate this facility as they can also use the kitchen in the evening and not have the expense of eating out. Sorry that you found the notes irritating but they are for the customers benefit so that they can find things easily and also certain basic house rules for everyone's comfort. The 'Lodge' at the bottom of the garden was never intended for customers, it was the children's playhouse. Unfortunately some people absolutely love it and specially request it. We used to reluctanly let it go if requested but we prefer not to use it as it is our private space. Hope this clears a few things up.

Don't know what the previous comment was all about, my husband and I stayed here last summer when visiting family nearby. The owner Jackie was very nice and helpful and went out of her way to help us when we needed to get somewhere and had no clue!
