The price at gbp 54 per night, isn't cheap for a B and B... Still, it was where I needed to be and options were limited. I booked based on Tripadvisor recommendations and the phone call I made, when I asked specifically whether there was free wifi, and was told there was.
I arrived after a 5 hour journey, very tired and was asked for upfront payment for both nights. No receipt was given for cash payment.
The room was spotlessly clean but, when I went to bed, one of the two twin beds sagged so badly, it felt as if the divan base might be broken. I swapped to the other bed, which was marginally better but still, after two nights of a mattress that I'll bet has never been turned to even out use/wear, I now have a nasty bout of backache! I did put all this into a survey form left for clients.
During the two nights and days I stayed there, the free wifi never worked once, even in the public rooms or bar. Even the hotel bar staff couldn't get it to work and I heard other visitors experiencing difficulties. My only option was to go to the local Caffe Nero, buy food I didn't want so I could use my iPad / Phone.
On plus side, the breakfasts were very good indeed, freshly cooked for each person, very hot and with an excellent range of options. The cleanliness of the accommodation was very good too but, the bar and eating area were very dark and rather gloomy.
Would I stay there again? Probably not. Wish I'd paid the slightly higher price for a better standard a few doors down.
