If I was in a group of people, preferably with a man or two, I would have had no problem staying in this B&B - it's quaint, surrounded by garden, and decorated quite as stylishly as the website suggests. However, being a young woman, staying at the Royal Pelican alone, I was very unsure of the security on the property, considering there was not a single other soul on the property staying overnight with me. I raised this concern with the hostess upon checking in, and was assured that other holiday makers would be arriving on the adjacent property later in the evening, but that the staff would not be present for the weekend.
I tried to settle in, but found that the bath had water standing in it, and the bathroom floor had water on it as well. After struggling to get hold of the hostess, she agreed to let me have another room, but by now I had noticed that the property was not very well lit, and that none of the other rooms had been occupied yet. I raised this concern again, but was told that others would soon be on the property.
Eventually I decided to book into a hotel, because I wouldn't spend the next two nights being scared and struggling to get hold of the hostess. Before leaving I checked the other flats, even on the adjacent property, and found no-one there. I contacted the hostess to ask where I could drop off the keys, as I wasn't going to use the room. She never bothered to enquire why, or if there was anything she could do to help. I queried the level of service in a courteous manner, and requested a 50% refund due to the fact that I was not going to be using the room for the second night (I let the first night go because it was late already). I received a very curt reply about their refund policy (zero, if the booking was not cancelled 7 days in advance). This was followed by some insults about my experience with guest houses and a series of assumptions about my motives.
I could go on, but for the purpose of brevity, I will leave it at that. Not impressed, and won't recommend.
