Positive Reviews

Lovely property and rooms

The Emsley Guest House is a lovely, well maintained property you'll truly enjoy. Guestrooms are well-appointed and spacious, not to mention immaculately clean. They have comfortable beds with crisp white linens that ensure a good night's sleep after a long day of sightseeing. Rooms come with all the expected amenities; in addition to the basics, you'll find tasty homemade biscuits with the tea and coffee. These are replenished daily and add a very welcoming and memorable touch.

Fantastic breakfast

The complimentary breakfast is a highlight of the stay. The buffet selection is extensive with juices, cereals, fruit and yogurts. It's followed by a tasty cooked meal with offerings such as scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and omelettes. Also highly recommended, the guesthouse offers an afternoon tea with delicious homemade jams and scones. The quality and freshness of the meals make a great impression.

Superb hosts

Upon arrival, you're greeted with friendly and attentive service. The owners take exceptional care of the property, it's spotless and the décor is lovely. Little touches like homemade biscuits and jams make an excellent impression. Staff can also offer great recommendations on local pubs and restaurants, along with useful advice attractions. It's nice to stay in a guesthouse so well cared for, and for which the owners take such pride.

Negative Reviews

Small bathrooms

The bathrooms at The Emsley Guest House are small but very functional and extremely clean.

Steep stairs

Stairs to the second floor are rather steep but they email you in advance and it's really not much trouble unless you have a ton of luggage.

Book meals ahead

You do need to fill out a breakfast form a day ahead and select a time slot; this allows them to prepare an absolutely lovely meal for you though, just the way you like it!
