Disappointed as £90 per night price tag and snazzy website suggested this was going to be a good quality b&b but our stay was decidedly average.
Room- average and mostly pretty clean. Officious notice in en suite regarding penalties for" misuse of the bathroom" . Shower had loads of mould around the sealant. Little bottles of toiletries were already half used- yuk! Pillows were well used synthetic ones and uncomfortable.
Breakfast- Served at grubby table in the bar area not the retaurant. Why? Cooked breakfast was smashing but spoilt by poor quality orange juice, lousy choice of cereals offered ( surely muesli isn't that difficult to obtain in 2011?), poor quality white sliced toast (when we asked for brown the response was discourteous to say the least!), and instant coffee grudgingly provided.
The restaurant is a different affair altogther- excellent food and chirpy helpful waitress. Brilliant but need to seriously up their game on the overnight stuff if they want to cultivate an up market image.
