My friend and I finally found the place in the dark, but were not greeted in the usual friendly B&B manner, and wondered if we had the right place. We were given a key and directions to the top of the house for our room. Up we struggled and found the room.
We'd known when booking it would be a gable room, and it was a cozy, unique feel. We stayed in our room and made use of the okay tea-making facilities and the telly.
There were at least four dogs running around on the ground floor, belonging to the farm. My friend, allergic to dogs, suffered even up in our gable room. I'm not sure if I missed the notification on the website when we booked it, but if you're allergic to animals, I would definitely steer clear of this place.
Our sleep was good, but in the morning, the shower didn't quite work. Due to the slope of the roof, the shower was a showerhead hooked to the taps of the bathtub. Except it wouldn't stay on, giving my friend a difficult time. I didn't bother and just took a short shallow bath.
The room was fairly clean and nothing to argue about.
The breakfast was a big disappointment. We weren't given the option to ask for certain items on the full breakfast to be left off, like mushrooms and fried bread. We asked anyway.
I discovered my glass dirty, with a tiny moth in it. After getting up the courage to point this out to the nice serving woman, she said "Oh!" and walked off with it. No apology, and certainly no replacement glass.
One of the servers, only a few years younger than me at 28, did not look professional in a hoody and uggs.
Finally, when attempting to pay and leave, I spent several minutes in the foyer until I stopped one of the workers passing through and asked if I could pay for my stay.
That's when the shock of the cost of a disappointing stay hit, but I held my tongue and paid and left. The woman I paid was very kind in giving us detailed, written directions to our next destination.
The place has potential, with very simple things that could be changed. Better quality food, perhaps a choice of what to offer guests so there's no wasted food on the plate, and just some friendly service!
