I wish I’d read the previous review by Heinlager before I stayed here. He couldn't be more right - the owner is an absolute bigot. His pastimes include flaunting his xenophobia, and collecting endangered animals to stuff or skin and display on his walls.
He seemed to have an especial dislike of the Irish as he spent the duration of my breakfast spouting racial slurs, and basically telling my Scottish girlfriend that she shouldn’t be going out with a ‘paddy’! But it doesn’t stop there; his intolerance seems to extent to everyone who isn’t in the Scottish upper-middle class.
Credit where credit is due, the place was clean and the room was a good size, but for a little extra money you could get somewhere closer to the city centre and with a more open minded landlord.
Like the dead animals on his walls, people like him are, thankfully, a dying breed.
