Arrived at 5pm after a long drive to find no-one answering the doorbell but found a notice on the door with a phone number to ring for service. Spoke to a woman who directed us to the Engleton (which was next door). Booking in was perfunctory at best.
We had a room at the top of the house which had no en-suite facilties - we shared a small shower room with the other room on the same floor. The room smelt of stale cigarettes and the carpet was clearly in need of a thorough hoovering - the carpet also didn't get hoovered during our stay. Towels were small and starchy, bedding was 70's style and light fittings were missing, you also needed to be he-man to open the door as it felt really heavy. This B&B could do with a top to bottom refurbishment as everything was very dated, old and dirty. En-suite is a must in any accommodation these days.
Breakfast was ok although the assumption was that everybody would want a full english. Staff were most surprised when someone said no. Had an early breakfast booked (7.30 am), but had to go into the Engleton as the Castleton didn't serve early breakfasts (same person served in both establishments on different days).
All in all, if you want a cheap, 70's style B&B this one's for you!!!
