I was not intending writing this, as a negative review looks as if one is complaining unfairly, when everyone else writes a positive review. I tend only to write good reviews, or not at all. However, if I can make one person think twice before staying at Rockcrest, this will be worthwhile.
We were not expected when we arrived, despite booking weeks ahead and receiving confirmation. We were given a large room, but beds had extremely old mattresses and old, mismatched bedding. WiFi would not work at all, and we were asked to use our laptop along in the breakfast room. We were asked what time for breakfast by a fairly unfriendly hostess, presumably Marian, and when we arrived at 8 am the lights were all out and tables not set. She arrived about 20 mins later, saying her alarm failed to go off. Breakfast was sparse to say the least, everything brought to the table by her, no buffet in a very small room. My husband asked for fruit to start and was brought a small plate with a whole banana, a large wedge of melon, an apple, and two strawberries. He expected a conventional bowl of breakfast fruit. We did receive a plate of bacon and eggs, but asking for mushrooms, were told there weren't any. We left promptly after breakfast, and curiously, after being very offhand most of the time we were there, the same lady came running out to the car to say goodbye and saying she hoped we enjoyed ourselves.
We had a really unpleasant stay at this B & B, it did not meet a 5 star standard, and we were disappointed to have wasted a nice night at a B & B, which we always enjoy.
My only recommendation would be to stay somewhere else. Thank you.
