I picked this B&B regardless of the ratings because it was close to what I wanted to see while here in Omagh! From the moment I entered the home and met the proprietors, Jackie and Chris I knew the previous reviews just couldn't be right. As the time progressed this feeling was only reinforced!
The home was immaculate, the dining area well stocked with cereal, fruit, tea and coffee. My room was just the right size, the bed extremely comfy and warm. The bathroom was the same, clean and tidy and the towels were wonderfully soft and clean.
Jackie, Chris, their son Stuart and spaniel Jack have the perfect balance of friendliness without being overbearing. Jackie cooked a marvelous Irish breakfast the first morning; it was more than filling and I asked if all the Irish REALLY ate like this? She smiled and said "not really" and I said "neither can I." we both laughed and settled for more reasonable fare.
Again, I cannot say it enough. The two negative reviews are appalling and unbelievable from my perspective. I also left valuables in my room and never had any indication that my room was entered into. I give this B&B more than 5 stars and will recommend it highly to anyone that asks!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, clean and quiet.

Wonderful relaxing stay, friendly owners always ready to help and offer refreshments.

You can tell no expense has been spared in decor and furnishings. Lovely communal dining and living room areas. Bathroom was beautifully modern and clean. Every area we used was spotlessly clean.

We had a delicious full cooked breakfast and we're able to choose a time suitable for ourselves.

We'll definitely be staying again

This establishment was recommended to us by locals as a clean and reputable Bed & Breakfast. Indeed, the property and the rooms (there were only three) appeared to be well kept and clean, although we did not like the 'dark' atmosphere of the rooms. The owners tried their best to be friendly, but we could not help thinking that they somehow acted withdrawn and not very pleased to welcome visitors to their property. The coffee we were invited to was left virtually untouched because their kitchen was not very well kept and our arms seemed to stick to the table surface when we tried to lift them.

What surprised us first was the fact that we did not need to fill in a guest register, as one would usually do when checking in with likewise accommodations so authorities have a record about one's whereabouts. Even more disturbing was the fact, that guests had direct access to private quarters of the property, such as Living room, kitchen, and bedroom, which left us a bit unsettled and wary. The room we were meant to occupy was a good sized double bed room with en-suite, but no coffee making facilities. For this, a dedicated room was available which featured a mid-sized table, a kettle, tea, coffee, and some cups, ... but no spoons???

Nevertheless, we wanted to use the reminder of the day to explore the area of the Sperrins and the American Folk park, as it was late morning when we checked in. So, we just left our suitcases at the room and did not return before sunset. Once we came back, we entered through the main door and found nobody to be in. However, their kitchen and living room door were left wide open and we could not help but notice, that unopened letters and money was left on the kitchen table for everyone to see (no dedicated guest entry). Frankly, we just did not feel comfortable and quickly withdrew to our room, were we where going to refresh ourselves.

Sadly, the bad surprises continued when we used the towels that were left for us. The smell of these was very upsetting and quite repulsive, to say the least. We had a feeling that they were once used, put through a quick-wash cycle and then having been left in the room for quite some time. However, worse was still to come when we opened our suitcases. Because we are frequent travellers, we adapted to a routine to safeguard our belongings. One of our priorities was to not leave valuables in our luggage and we also had our suitcases prepared, so we could see if anybody attempted to open these or otherwise. In our case, there were clear indications that somebody must have entered our room during our absence, trying to open our luggage.

Because it was now later into the evening and we were asked to pay upfront, we decided to spend the night in the room and locked ourselves in. Trying to watch the news on TV was impossible because it was not connected to an antenna, just another bad surprise.

The following morning was used to get ready and we were anticipating some sort of breakfast. However, and to our surprise, nobody was in the property, and yet again, doors were left wide open with personal belongings left visible on sideboards and table tops. It was 8:15 am.

Conclusively, we would not recommend this establishment to any potential traveller. Best is to visit the Tourist Information in Omagh, which is the next biggest town in the area, to find reputable and tested accommodation nearby. Also, we found it is not always guaranteed that breakfast is included in the price one is asked to pay. So it would be worth to find out beforehand if this is the case.

Room Tip: Not sure about other rooms, ours was dark and eary.

The initial stay with this accommodation was planned for 5 days, but the harsh reality got the better of us and we vacated after one night.

Reasons:

1. There was no breakfast offered, even though this house calls itself B&B.

2. The atmosphare turned from half warm to ice cold after the initial welcome and after we have been shown our rooms.

3. Although everything looks very tidy at first sight, our faces grew longer when we tried to make ourself comfortable. Taking a shower was bliss, but there was dust and hairs in the washing basin, the towels did have the most awefull and penetrating smell one could possibly imagine (probably quick washed and dried after many times of use) and the landlords were not present for hours on end.

4. The kitchen door was left open and opened (private) letters were to be seen on the kitchen isle. This made us feel very uncomfortable.

Indeed, the only friendly occupant of this dwelling must have been their lovely dog, who was ever so friendly.

Although we are from Canada, we frequently come to visit the UK, hence, British B&B's are not foreign to us. However, this sad example of a B&B is probably an exeption as most of the houses we have visited seem to be worlds apart. Would we visit this house again? Most likely not.

Room Tip: Sorry, we have to pass

I booked the Mountjoy and later my partner read some reviews panning this business. From the moment we arrived we were made most welcome by the gentleman owner. We were given tea and biscuits in the dining room and had excellent conversation with him. I found him to be polite, charming, and not in the least as was mentioned elsewhere. The room was comfortable, en-suite and warm and clean. The lady of the house arrived later and was equally pleasant. The bed was very comfortable and indeed we were even given our choice of rooms. Breakfast was excellent and - even though it was a business trip for me - my partner enjoyed her stay too! We managed to forget something in a drawer and returned the following day and the article was safe for us!

Room Tip: Be guided by the owners!!
