Nice weekend
Service was excellent, room was spotlessly clean, free car park,plenty of tea and coffee in room. Breakfast service was good as well. Stayed in many different hotels. This Guest house is better than some hotels I have stayed in. Everything was quality. Bus stop just outside. Tony was very helpful will go back again. 10 out of 10.

Wonderful, very nice, clean, and comfortable room with an en-suite. Bus stop right outside the front door, or a good walk to the historical sites.

Fabulous stay!
I stayed at the Abcorn for 3 nights and I couldn’t fault anything. The host is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was wonderful; the room (I was upgraded) was spacious and spotless with a very comfortable bed and the facilities were great. There is a bus stop outside so travelling into the city and back (and Ikea) is easy and quick. Last but not least was the price, which was terrific value for money. I highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be looking to return in the future!
