Well, all I can say is, how disappointing. We stayed here just for one night and was greeted by the male owner of the B&B who was either in a very bad mood or extremely tired. There were no nibbles and drinks on arrival. Just grunted at that is where the sherry is etc. No nibbles to be seen or offered at all. Champagne was finally offered at 8 pm. Our room had massive cracks in it and was very dusty. The bathroom was clean.
By the morning the owners still weren't very friendly. Once we were paying and I was asking questions, is when they finally began to have a friendly conversation with us.
The views are amazing and breakfast is good but the owners need to learn to be more friendly up front with their guests especially when the guests are paying $200 a night.
