I want to start off saying I have traveled all over the world and have stayed at many different hotels and b&b for my job in PR. I also go on trip advisor but never felt the need to write a review till now. I have never had such a disturbing and horrible experience till I stayed at 1708 House in South Hampton. The owners of the B&B are the most rude and hostile people I have ever met. My friend and I needed to extend our stay and they were happy to book us a room for an extra night. When the extra day came they said we never had the conversation and didn't know what we were talking about. We made the reservation face to face, we discussed rates and confirmed which room we would be taking. They wrote our names in front of us in the reservation book. When we nicely confronted them they got very abusive to the point I felt physically unsafe. Also, the day before we heard them in a screaming match with another guest over the phone denying knowledge of their reservation. They refused to let us have our belongings that were in our room and physically blocked me from getting my bags. These people are truly psychotic and deranged.
bottom line...southampton has been somewhere i have spent most summers through out my life. i can say its is a wonderful place to visit and i would not want anyone to have to encounter an experience with these lunatics.
