The pictures on the website are a very accurate account of the B&B – the furnishings are out-dated and in places falling apart, although the owner Dorothy was incredibly hospitable and the atmosphere very homely. This was all as we anticipated, however we were not expecting the lack of cleanliness. The carpet was extremely dirty in our room, so bad that I didn’t even want to walk on it in bare foot! Despite booking an en-suite we were put in room with a shared bathroom, not a massive issue as the shared shower and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast was adequate but not amazing. However I wouldn’t recommend this B&B, despite the owner being lovely.
