Unfortunately the B&B we normally stay at was fully booked, so after seeing the reviews on here decided to book this one. Initially met by a gentleman, who did not introduce himself, then shown to the room, Room was clean and well maintained, ensuite contained shower, toilet and hand basin, additionally handwash, shampoo and conditioner dispensers available but no shower gel. The bed was very soft, too soft!
In the morning we went down to breakfast and met the same man (I suspect the owner) to find orange juice already in glasses and milk in a jug on the table (not sure how long they had been there) no other juice available. On the plus side there was a good selection of breakfast cereals. The man asked what cooked breakfast we would like, all of us opted for the full english (bacon, fried egg, sausage, tomato and half a plate of baked beans). However, it seems they can only do 2 at a time! Which considering there was 4 of us on the table was a little odd! The toast came with the second set of breakfast, which was cold and not helpful for the 2 of us who had eaten ours already. Another group of 3 had come in after us and had to wait at least 1/2 hour before even being asked what they wanted. Overall orgainisation at breakfast is very poor and would not stay here again.
