This guest house tried hard but failed to deliver given the price charged for the "luxury" room. The room was clearly meant to look quite up-market but scratch the surface and it certainly didn't justify the cost. The TV remote didn't work at all, the reading lights above the bed were on the verge of falling off, the headboard was ripped and the shower was either freezing or scalding hot! Breakfast was a lottery on the Saturday morning with insufficient seating and the landlady forgetting orders and the food taking a long time to arrive. If the cost had been £75 per night instead of £115 we could have ignored the niggles but as it was this was quite poor value for money.
