The room was fine. Not spacious, but enough and the bed was comfortable. The ensuite shower room was quite nice and there were loads of "goodies" like shower gels, shampoo etc. and a heated towel rail. The house is well positioned in the centre of the village so convenient for pubs, restaurants and shops. It's a quiet place so there was no noise to worry about. My lack of enthusiasm for this B&B was based on the welcome. I had been walking all day in high winds and rain. I arrived soaked, exhausted, in need of a bit of tlc and I probably didn't look too good. (My husband was coming later by train). However, I did expect a warm welcome and, to be frank, the way the owner looked at me as I stood on the step, made me think that, if I hadn't paid in advance, I would not have been let in. It was a long time before she stepped back to let me out of the rain. I took my boots off and put them in the tray provided. The owner was clearly worried about me walking upstairs with my backpack and asked me to make sure I didn't touch the wall paper. I was then given instructions about not hanging wet things in the room. She said that if I took them downstairs, she would dry them for me, which was good, and I took her up on it. Most things were indeed dry the next morning. The information booklet was the most amazing I had ever seen, with instructions about not going down to breakfast in nightclothes and a number of other things I have never seen anywhere else. Breakfast was fine, but I was left with the impression that guests were seen as people twho would cause a problem unless they were properly constrained. They could not be trusted to behave themselves. So in spite of the nice facilities and situation, it is not somewhere I could be comfortable.
