Stayed at the inn for 3 days ( 3 for 2 offer) Room OK with old furniture.
Bathroom could be described as compact with a door with an opaque glass panel which was a bit disconcerting to say the least ( good job we have been together for some time!!) There was a notice on wall asking not to put anything other than loo paper down the toilet: no problem. However we were not told that the 2 switches on the wall (that we had not noticed) were to enable the loo and the shower tray to empty! Needless to say we had an embarrassing moment when the loo blocked and we were awoken with a discreet knock saying there was a leak and the said switches needed to be on all the time and how was it that they were off?!! Explained that we had not been taken to our rooms and therefore had not been given the necessary information so they had never been turned on since we had arrived.We would certainly have known as the noise was deafening ! (Perhaps a note in the room requesting that switches were left on could be considered??)
Rest of stay pleasant food and service was good and the weather was kind.
