This has to be the worst bed and breakfast establishment my husband and I have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many.
Two plus points firstly - comfortable bed and acceptable breakfast. The remainder of the requirements of any hospitality facility fall seriously short.
The welcome? We received lacked any degree of warmth, we were directed to our room, position of the door key was shown and whoever it was departed swiftly. I had to quickly approach him to ask the times for breakfast.
The room looked a sorry state - very dated furniture, grubby cushions placed on the bed, unbelievably old armchair, dressing table chair must have been from the fifties.
The hot water almost reaches boiling point I am sure. A notice stating this should be placed for safety reasons. The underneath of the loose toilet seat was brown and disgusting. Television was very small.
At breakfast time we had to walk up to the main house (no real problem). On entering the main house the smell of damp is very strong. The dining room is very dated and also very busy which meant people were being asked to return a little later - a walk back down for some I presume.
The owners/manageress came to us with a pad and pencil at the ready - no 'good morning' or smile.
The people who run this establishment need to take a course on hospitality, certainly refurbish our room and I advise anyone considering staying in this area to book one of the chain type lodges where you will receive a higher standard of accommodation for a smaller fee.
We will not be returning.
