It is a house of nightmares. You are not welcome, you are just a guest who pays. Don't expect any genuine warmth from Dawn, the owner. She only makes the absolute minimum effort. The breakfast is terrible and the walls are thin, there is no privacy whatsoever. Our room smelled like a toilet, had to have the window open at night, couldn't sleep due to the noisy traffic, appalling. There must have been a maintenance issue but when we complained she didn't think that there was any smell and she even said that it might be one of the housemaids... In the end she offered a ridiculously small discount and said that she was not happy. Dawn should know that it doesn't matter whether she is happy or not. What matters is whether the customers are leaving with a good impression or with a bad taste in their mouth. After that experience obviously the latter happened. Stay away.
