We arrived at Bunbeg house in the early evening hours of Saturday and were met inside by the owner. He directed us to our rooms on the second floor. The whole house was freezing and so were the rooms, where the doors and windows were wide open, while the outside air temperature was around 10 degrees celcius. We were told that because of the good number of bookings they had opened a week earlier than usual, hence the need to get some fresh air into the rooms. We imediately closed the windows and turned the radiators up, but there was no heating. The manager first had to go down and turn it on and after a while the radiators got warm. We left the freezing place for some food in a pub. Came back around 10pm and the rooms were still chilly, especially the one with a window that wouldnt close properly so you could hear the wind howling. The bathrooms were freezing since the heating didnt work there at all. Apart from this, the room was clean but it smelt musty and there was a dirty looking cover on the bed.
My dad was up at 3am and 6am for a toilet visit and at noticed that there was no heating on whatsoever. The forecasted night temperature was 0-3 degrees celcius and the room was absolutely freezing at this time. It came on for about an hour in the morning.
We went to get breakfast in the downstairs premises which were very cold and also unacceptably dirty. After knocking on a door a very young man dressed in a t-shirt and jeans came out to take our orders. In the meantime we we directed to the cereals which were poured into 4 different kinds of bowls with 4 different kinds of spoons. Half an hour later our hot breakfast arrived which included 3 pieces of burnt bacon, 2 wrinkled and burnt sausages, a fried egg and tomatoes. It was all served on a cold plate. We were met by the female owner to whom we expressed our views whereafter she put the heating on and moved us to a table closer to a radiator. All in all a very bad experience.
