I booked a night here for husband and myself as we were visiting elderly relatives nearby (sadly they cannot cope with overnight stays nowadays) and this seemed a good alternative option. As it had to be arranged at fairly short notice on account of one of them being ill, most hotels in the area were already full. This was fairly close and a 3 star with the added antantage of good car parking and a short walk into town for an evening meal if necessary. Whilst it did prove to be adequate on the whole, we would say it missed the mark for 3 star. A basic level of cleanliness ought to be a given - but floors didn't look as if they'd seen a vacuum cleaner is a while and cobwebs/ingrained dirt seemed the norm in certain areas, including reception. The room was large and the bathroom suite clean, thankfully. We had to ask for some teabags, there were none in the basket of tea/coffee making facilities. The bed was not the most comfortable (this is usually a given as well, especially nowadays) but we were so tired we coped with it. Breakfast again was just adequate, no more, no less. We were told to sit anywhere, then promptly asked to move to another table by a different waitress. We were not told where the cereals/fruit etc was, the waitress just disappeared. We found them ourselves - adequate but only tinned grapefruit, which was a bit disappointing. There were no menus, it was assumed that you would have a full English - I asked for scrambled eggs and the they did obligue me, my husband said the fE was well cooked, so a definate plus goes to the cook. We had one cup of coffee, but after the waitress served the cooked food, both of them disappeared and we were never offered any further top ups!All in all we managed and we only spent £75.00 on the b&b, but this really wasn't 3 star service. All very impersonal, and clearly the poor Eastern European staff overworked and underpaid, so a lot of detail, such as a welcome and a smile, or even a good clean, not attended to.
