“Good have been better.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Large, clean and well presented rooms, but lacked attention to detail. We stayed there for a few days recently in the brief period that counted as summer this year, only to discover that the road outside was quite noisy and there’s a railway line a few hundred yards away. Any other week and we could have probably got rid of the problem by closing the window, but as it was we had a choice of closing the windows at night and melting, or leaving them open and being kept awake by the noise. The B&B has eight or nine rooms and really counts as a small hotel. The couple who run it are very friendly, and did their best to please, but our overall impression was that they were very busy and attention to detail suffered somewhat. The door to our room required two hands to open, the cupboard wouldn’t close and constantly swung open and got in the way. The toilet door didn’t have lock on it (or even a catch) so was permanently ajar, and the toilet seat seemed to stay stuck at 45 degrees most of the time. We chose a full-english for beakfast, it was ok, but cooked in a different part of the building and is carried across to the annex we were in. Breakfast is only available after 8:30 Mon-Friday, and at the weekends breakfast was DIY (they provide the food, you do the cooking). The beds were only made intermittently. Our top tip for the owners would be to either get some help in to assist you, or shut down a couple of the rooms and focus and a better service for the remaining rooms.
