The brochure that you find out there at tourist information centres or wherever is the most inaccurate
piece of work that I have ever seen. The lawn at the front of the house is all torn up There was a driveway at both sides of the house and not one as pictured.. The picture of the full traditional breakfast is only in your dreams. The continental breakfast has 2 dry cereals, warm milk sitting on the counter for how long, who knows - warm orange juicer also sitting there, instant coffee for you to make on your own and a tub of margarine for 2 half loaves of stale bread.. As for directions - coming off the Viking Trail - there is no sign. The owner acknowledged this that it was knocked down and stolen several months ago. When we arrived at his door finally - rang the doorbell with no answer, used telephone numbers on clipboard outside to reach owner. We phoned and made reservations 3 days prior to our arriving. Told us he did not have an idea as to what room we would be going into. When we showed him our paperwork, the room with the queen bed and the private ensuite we were told it was not ready.
We had to wait while he changed the sheets and cleaned the place up somewhat ! We decided to go to his wife's restaurant "Cafe on Main" while he did this. The dinner itself of fried cod was good. The restaurant and owner who was there, Judy, brought our meal and then ignored us while chatting up with some local people. The table we sat at could have been cleaned off before our dinner was served but was not. There were tools on another table and dirty dishes on another table that were there when we left. The owner left before we finished our meal knowing that we were even staying at her Bed & Breakfast and didn't acknowledge us in any way. We had to pay the cook for our dinner. When we got back to the Bed and Breakfast found the dirty sheets on the floor in the bedroom. The bathroom floor was tacky/dirty. Beer bottles full and empty in the bathroom cabinet. No faceclothes. The liquid dispensing soap we were told to use in the shower also. The clock radio was unplugged when we got there - plugged it in and could not get it to work We had to phone him to inquire about the soap. The bathtub did not drain at all - standing in 3-4 inches of water after shower.
The bed quilt appeared to have white fur all over it and did not smell good. There was dust on the floor. This place was by far the most disgusting Bed & Breakfast we have ever been in.
