We were a party of 10 busy ladies, meeting up for a catch up - as we're dotted all over the country - and a walking wk-end.
After parking at the rear of the building and walking round to the front (some distance) with our bags, it was a suprise not to be offered assistance with any of our luggage, from either the cars or to our rooms...a little ungentlemanly we thought.
We had pre-arranged an early check in but still caught the host on the hop, in that some rooms were not ready and this seemed to be an issue, not a problem for us although it seemed to agitate him...this set the tone during our stay.
Also, on arrival we were asked to pay for our rooms up front (before even seeing them), which made us all feel a little uncomfortable...as if we were going to do a runner!?
The rooms were a little tired but in good order and with all the facilities you would expect.
We had a lovely evening at The Thai Connection in Malvern, after an exhausting walk over the Malvern Hills, followed by a sound nights sleep.
Breakfast was a hurried affair for a Sunday, as checkout is a ridiculous 10am!
Being treated like naughty children didn't go down well either. Four of us came down seperately and chose to sit at two different tables, however, our host pointedly requested we sat at one table, as he said it was easier for him. One of us requested the butter and the host - standing next to the fridge - gestured and said curtly " It's in the fridge" and promptly walked off. That said, it was a fabulous breakfast.
As a group we paid £350 for 1 nights stay at this B&B, you would have thought someone in the hospitality business would have made us feel more welcome, particularly in these tough economic times and with "Inspector" type programmes aplenty.
