We were 4 adults, one child aged 4 and half and a little dog. We booked this B&B and paid full price upfront.Me and my partner were travelling separately from my sisters family, so we did arrive 2hours later(around 6pm). Surprise! There wasn't any one from the B&B staff to meet us and to show our rooms, except my sisters family!!! She did gave me keys and showed our room, while her husband did show to my partner where to park our car. Then she said to me: " we were told the breakfast is served between 08:10 and 8:50 and it's full English".
OK.We went to our room! Nice view on the river bank! That's all! Shower and the toilet were across the hall with communal towel in the loo!
Next morning I had a chance to meet the host. No "Hello" or "Morning", just short shout " I've made you table outside, it's a nice day, you can enjoy your breakfast". Thanks mate!!! I rely thought at least we would be offered to be seated outside in a nice and polite manner and not to be given an order!! We are adults age between 27 and 35 and we paid upfront!!! We deserve a nice service( or maybe not?)
It was a bit chilly outside, so i've asked if we can sit inside( as there was 3 tables available). NO! as we were 5 people there was not enough room for us(surprise!) and because my sister had a dog and a child. Nice!
Over cooked (fried)egg,small tomato ( size of a golf ball) cut in half, two small horribly tasted mushrooms, absolutely inedible some sort of a value sausage( our dog refused to eat it) and NO baked beans!(is this a full English breakfast should be?) all served on a small plate.Between 5 people we had 6 slices of toasts( another 6 arrived after we finished our plates).Not mentioning coffee!
We left soon after breakfast. One last surprise! There wasn't any one to say " Goodbye" or "thanks for staying", so we left keys on the antique table in the hall.
The summary: AVOID!
