After reading all the other recent reviews I had to double check that I was reviewing the right place! I am no snob and have stayed at loads of b & b's and hotels all over the country and overseas and this is the worst I have ever been to. Granted we only paid £41 for a twin room for one night but you still expect a basic level of cleanliness... Perhaps as it was the end of the season standards had slipped but aside from the clean bedding - there is at least one positive comment! - it was mucky. The carped had not had a hoover over it for some time. The t.v and kettle worked and were clean - another positive note! but the over riding negative comment was the overwhelming smell of stale chip fat/fried food in the public areas. We had to hold our breath when we came in and went out. We had a great time at Starlight Express though and brought a pizza back for supper but again the rank smell put us totally off our food. In the morning the smell from the breakfast room and the smoke completely put us off venturing down for breakfast so we left our keys and went. As for the fantastic party hosts, we saw them once for literally 2 seconds on arrival when we got our keys As I said previously perhaps they were worn out from all the entertaining they did during the summer season but we got about 3 words out of them - Heres your keys, the room is down there - sorry thats 8 words. I wont be going back. Nor will any of my friends and family. Sorry Forty Winks but if the rest of the place was as clean and welcoming as the bed I slept in that night this might have been a different review.
