All with en-suite facilities.

This is such an amazing B and B. One of the best we've stayed in. We had a double room on the top floor which overlooked their beautiful garden. We were looked after extremely well by Pablo and John. The bedroom was spacious and the breakfast was excellent. Our bathroom was also lovely. The B and B is within walking distance of the town centre which is also lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely stay there again if we return to Newark. They even gave us a lift to the station when we were leaving. Thank you so much.

I really can't say enough good things about Pablo's place. We were so lucky to have found it on Airbnb! We were met at the door by John, who helped us get our bags upstairs (our room was on the top floor)., then invited us down to the sitting room for a glass of wine. The first thing that impressed me was the beautiful stained glass windows in the stairwell. The house looked completely restored! Our room was nicely furnished, with a wonderfully comfortable mattress and places to put our luggage. The bathroom was just across the hall and had a nice shower. Our room included breakfast and it was like eating in a gourmet restaurant! Beautiful dining room with crown molding, lovely China cups and plates, heavyweight flatware. The breakfast was very nicely done, with fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, juice, and full English breakfast cooked to order. Oh, and the most delicious homemade jam! Afterward Pablo invited me to take photos of his beautiful garden. There's a nice pub just down the road that you can walk to. I could have stayed all week, but we were there only one night. I highly recommend Pablo's place if you are looking for an elegant and comfortable place to stay in Newark- on-Trent.
