Dear Guests Thank you for your time providing the review. Glad to hear that you admired the heritage beauty of the property built in 1865. We will take onboard your thoughts regarding tea making facility within the bedroom in addition to the facility in the general Breakfast Room. Kind regards Management Lisburn House.

The overall look of the room was okay when we went in but the doona cover was filthy dirty along the top of it. It looked like it hadn't been washed in a long time. The top sheet looked like it was mean't for a single bed not a queen so it barley covered us and as I didn't want the doona cover touching me it made it impossible to sleep. The bed was also so uncomfortable and needs to be updated. We didn't stay for the breakfast that we paid for that was included in our fee as we couldn't get out of there quick enough.

Dear Guests I noted and investigated your negative comments on the bed and bedding of the room. The queen size bed is of good quality Sleephead brand - we will refer your comment to the bed supplier. Sheets and all bedding are washed regularly after guests left. What you said as filthy dirty along the top of duvet cover was presumably stubborn marks, not removed by normal washing. Apologies on your disatisfaction. Kind regards Steven - Proprietor Lisburn House

Not cared for

Pros: The buildng
Cons: Just about everything
Greeted by poorly maintained gardens, weeds. Room was dusty, no appropriate bathroom amenities, pathetic continental breakfast, no fruit. Lounge area unusable. Has potential, obviously owner is sweating the asset.

Lovely manager and a pleasant room

Pros: Beautiful house.
Cons: Breakfast, grounds and communication with other guests about their facilities.
Location: Close enough to town, nothing really in the immediate area.
Sad to see the grounds have / are being left to ruin. Breakfast was a non event, didn't bother on the second morning and went out instead. No milk for cereal to be seen, no selection of tea. Where is the cooked breakfast?? Not hard and would make a massive difference. The guests in the neighbouring room on the second night started using our bathroom, then both bathrooms.

Old heritage house was nice but a bit creaky. Olivia & Chris were good hosts and breakfast was very good.
