High Quality Standards
"We pride ourselves on providing an excellent friendly service with a strong emphasis on cleanliness, ensuring our guests have a relaxed and comfortable stay". Take a look at our guest book for visitor comments.
Argyle Guest House has been regularly inspected and awarded the FOUR STAR rating by the English Tourism Council (VisitEngland) and 5 STARS for Service levels (2011). Their overnight visit in 2008 was assessed over 8 overnight stays which we passed with flying colours. The second visiting inspector was very impressed with the guest house and loved the four poster room. Subsequent visits up to 2012 saw improvements in all rooms. We have now replaced (as of Sept 2012) VisitEngland 4 stars with AA 4 stars.
We dont pay to subscribe to award schemes (such as best B&B) so we can offer you even more to ensure you have a comfortable stay, all at no extra cost. Our product and service level is testament to our commitment to you, our only priority. We where awarded 5 stars for Hospitality levels in 2011.
