I don't believe what has just happened to us. My partner phoned to book one nights accommodation at Oliver's and the woman told him the cost and said she had accommodation available. He said he would phone her back once he had arranged things with me.
When he phoned back the woman said "We've changed our mind" and said we were no longer welcomed to stay because it was simply for one night. As it would be half-term when we would be staying they wanted to keep the room open for those people staying more than one night.
I find this unbeliveable, how can a business operate as such! We were looking forward to spending a night at this place, as the reviews we had read were good and the menu looking accommodating to our tastes.
I would highly recommend that if the owner of this establishment reads this comment that they take thought on how they treat potential customers and what influence those potential customers might have on their future business. I most certainly will warn friends and family from ever staying at this place!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We have 4 delightful and tastefully decorated bedrooms that will also satisfy those who enjoy a decent shower with their modern en-suite facilities. Our guests can access the B & B via their own door (we live next door so you get to come and go as you please!) We serve breakfast that includes everything from fresh seasonal fruit to a traditional full cooked fry-up (only we grill it and won't fry anything unless you ask us to!). We also offer a range of options for those who have alternative dietary needs or preferences. Our double fronted Purbeck stone building, which dates back to 1833 sits in the heart of the village just off the main square and has all the charm and beauty you would expect of a traditional village location. ... more less
