Stayed Sept 2012 for 3 nights with my partner.
1) location great.
2) The host was fab and she had put a lot of attention to detail with the running of the guest house, like providing torches.
3) She also recommended great places to visit and great eating locations.
4) breakfasts where amazing! Mushrooms best I've ever had, the whole meal was perfect and loads to eat- that's Aga's for you!
1) we had a room at the back with no views and it was too small for 3 nights, the bathroom was less than 1LM wide- not good for elbows! The sink you couldn't use due to a shelf above it- no room to wash your face or bend over, you had to open the door!
2) As our room didn't have a view the host made up for it in the dining room with amazing view of the harbor and her garden, problem was the table you didn't get to yourself you had to share, which made both parties uncomfortable and you where forced to make small talk- not good if you wanted alone time.
3) Sadly the room had really poor hygiene, the bathroom had areas of black mould around the shower area. The room was very dated and the worse thing of all which really creeped both me and my partner out was there was hair everywhere and it wasn't ours! My partner used a face towel and when I looked at him attached to his stubble was a long ladies black hair! Nasty! They where hairs on the shower walls and I found 5 different types in the bed! We hoped this was a one off as the hosts husband was on holiday at the time and we thoughts she may of been struggling with a full house.
After reading all the great reviews we where really excited to be going, but left disappointed regarding the hairs and the hard bed. Such a shame as the breakfast was amazing! And would of gone back for that alone! Such a shame.
