I booked 2 nights at the Avalon B&B in advance. On arrival, I was directed to the Glengarth as the Avalon was apparently full.
The Avalon has ample parking, the Glengarth does not.
I was put in room 1 which is next to the entrance door. The whole hotel has a musty/damp smell. The room was the size of a shoe box but clean with en-suite shower & toilet. There are tea/instant coffee making facilities with & a small flat screen freeview TV which is mounted about 8ft up on the wall at the far end of the room from the head of the bed.
This is a noisy location as the walls are paper thin. Every conversation in the corridor could be heard clearly as could the opening & closing of cupboards. As a consequence, I did not get much sleep.
At 8.30 in the morning of the first day, having been woken at 05.30, I went for breakfast to find the dining room quite full & was offered a seat at a table with a total stranger which I declined. If they are going to offer bed & breakfast they should ensure the dining facilities can cope with the number of guests. I did not bother going for breakfast on the second day.
The staff were polite but the stay started on a bad foot having to move from where I had booked & continued on a bad footing through the lack of sleep.
