We were directed to this B&B by the Tourist office after spending a whole day visiting the Cathedral and other attractions close by. The owner was there to greet us as we drove into the car park located at the back of the bulding. Leading us through the back entrance she gave us a quick update of the breakfast schedule etc and after registering, we were led upstairs to our room.
The room overlooking the car park is large, clean and the sheets were clean too, There is a lot of built in storage space. Furnishings are kept to the bare minimum and a small tv is propped on a table by the wall.
The ensuite is the smallest I have ever come across. A sliding door separates the bedroom from the bathroom. As soon as you step in you just have to turn on the spot to access the sink, the toilet and the shower which are all at arms length. The shower Is not very strong. The ensuite was clean and only soap and towels were provided.
That evening we brought in takeaway and the owner was gracious enough to provide us with cutlery and plates. When we retired for the night we found the mattress to be too thin and you could feel the springs. However we slept soundly as we were tired after a full day of walking.
Breakfast the next morning was down at the basement and the room shares space with a very large bar counter. It looked like we were the only guests. The meal was satisfactory.
We felt that the price we paid was a little too high for the type of accommodation provided. I would rate this B&B as a budget accommodation.
