The hosts were absent upon arrival (an emergency) so we checked ourselves into the cottage. Nice room but the toilet is exposed to the rest of the bathroom so if you like any privacy someone needs to leave. There was a mini fridge - completely empty. There was a good assortment of tea bags and ground coffee - no creamer, stir sticks or spoons. There was an ice bucket - but no ice. Normally, a B&B has a welcome drink, snack or supply of comfort items (soft drinks, wine, etc) available. We had tap water. The B&B is in the middle of nowhere so it was a dark, winding ride home from dinner. The only mention of breakfast was a sign in the kitchen stating continental breakfast available prior to 8am. We arrived for breakfast shortly after 8 and found a cold, dark kitchen. Based on the sign, it seemed there would be no breakfast that morning. Afterwards, we were told breakfast was at 9am and they were sorry we missed it. Professional innkeepers would have been specific about the time and would have made an effort to connect with the guests they were over charging - maybe a note on our door letting us know they were sorry they couldn't greet us but look forward to meeting us at breakfat at 9am - or, sorry we've been unavailable, please enjoy breakfast at the cafe on us.The disappointment would be more tolerable if we hadn't paid so much but, sadly, the value and B&B experience we expected was completely lacking.
