We had a booking for the Donoho Hotel for just one night (thankfully) as we needed a place to stay in that area. My Husband found it in a travel book and it looked nice enough, I had my doubts after reading reviews but gave in to him.
As soon as we stepped into the lobby I knew I did not want to stay, then we were given a set of keys so we could go look at the room. I'm not sure what really made the biggest impression, the dodgy brown shag carpet, the thick layer of dust and scattering of cobwebs or maybe the spiders in the bathtub! The sheets were threadbare and dingy one of the legs of the bed was sinking deep Into the carpet. Thankfully as we were there during a heatwave the air conditioner worked, only just. When I originally made the booking I was asked if we wanted dinner and breakfast of which I said yes please as I didn't know if anything else would be available in the area. These meals were not mentioned when we checked in, probably for the best.
On the upside the kids adored playing in the stream and catching fire flies and the massive porch with plenty of comfy rocking chairs is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine.
Although at check in we said we would be checking out at 8:30 we were all packed and ready to leave at 6:30!
