The guest info pack states that "The Driftwood Spars is many things but comes into its own as a pub" and this is certainly very true. The pub/bars are cosy and welcoming with log fires and lots of atmosphere. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, food of a reasonable standard, we were impressed with Fish Friday. However as a B&B it lacks a little attention to detail. On the first morning of our stay the breakfast waitress informed us that they had run out of baked beans!but offered to double up on one of the other breakast items as a substitute. On the second morning, there was no Granary bread,only white. On the third morning everything seemed to be ok, although very busy.
The accommodation was ok but nothing special.I cannot help thinking that with a little more thought,attention to detail and negligable extra cost the B&B could be so much better, but that said they seem to do a reasonably good trade with the accommodation. So why bother to go that extra mile and fold used guest towels in the bathroom, replace daily the flimsy disposable plastic beakers - (we had the same ones for three days) or remake the beds using the fancy cushions and decorative "trim" - (ours were just left in a heap on the stool) As I said just a little more thought and attention to detail. It's the little things that make a differance.

Thank you for your comments. As a business we have just joined trip advisor so I was unable to respond before. Since your stay we have appointed a breakfast chef who is responsible for ordering breakfast items however our bread is delivered fresh daily and due to circumstances beyond our control had not been delivered on time that particular morning. I have also passed your comments regarding attention to detail in our rooms to our head house keeper. Thanks once again for your comments as a business we can only improve with feedback from our customers. We hope to welcome you here again in the future.
