On arrival we had to wait an hour to get into the hotel as the owner had "popped to Tesco". He was quite abrupt as he spoke and just let the doors swing shut in my face. We had to ask what time dinner and breakfast was and felt no information was forthcoming. On the upside, our room was lovely, albeit a bit dated but very clean and spacious. At night we were served by a woman who was very helpful and definitely made a difference to our stay. Not much to do in Lauder and found we had to travel further afield. I can understand why he has been described as Basil Fawlty.
