Excellent stay with a lovely couple


spendlington, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
Could not fault our two night stay with Sharon and Joe. All the faultless reviews are well deserved .From the moment you step through their door you are made welcome.The room we stayed in had everything we required with the lovely touch which we have never seen before of a decanter of sherry on every landing for their guests .Breakfasts I have never had better anywhere all freshly cooked local quality produce on a hot plate. Would recommend to any couple and will return ourselves if in the area again. Thanking you again Stephen and Pip

Faultless


Chris_and_Emma1, Lytham St Anne's, United Kingdom
First rate and well justified amazing TA reviews. The welcome from the owners Joe and Sharon was very warm and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were given an overview of the town and the general area, things to do and recommendations for eating. The room was spotless, a great size, comfortable and beautifully appointed with lots of nice little touches that makes you appreciate that the owners want to go the extra mile for guests such as fresh milk for tea/coffee and a fridge on each landing for drinks. Breakfast was fabulous with a great system of booking the night before so that it was ready for you at your allotted time. Some have criticised the system of paying the balance on arrival which I really don't understand. Most check out at breakfast time when the owners are busy with breakfast so it makes sense; what is the issue? Frankly look no further; you will not find a better located, beautifully presented guest house than this. We stayed 3 nights and would recommend without hesitation.

Wonderful visit


Kevin N, Mansfield, United Kingdom
We stayed at Aln House for five nights and had a wonderful stay. The greeting we received from Sharon and Joe was very warm and friendly and included a very welcome hot drink. The rooms we had were well appointed with everything you could need including a fridge with fresh milk and a bottles of water daily. There was a full range of teas and coffees etc and even a sherry for later. The shower room was equipped with a quality toiletries. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the guest lounge was a cosy and inviting place to sit with our friends and enjoy a sherry. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt and a variety of cooked options, which were superb. The location was perfect for walking into town on an evening to sample the local pubs and restaurants, also an easy stroll to the Castle and gardens.

Excellent stay


Harny65,
We spent 2 nights at Aln house in May and found the whole experience excellent. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we found the room we stayed in very clean and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. The breakfast was first class. An enjoyable stay. Well done.
