stayed at this guest house on a groupon voucher for two nights,b and b and one evenig meal,just glad that i did not pay full price for this.The room was clean and the bed was comfey,the room we stayed in faced the road and although quiet at night traffic started at about 5-30 in the morning,breakfast could only be taken between 8-9 which on holiday is a bit early,the breakfast itself was nice but it felt a bit mean for five star,you were only given one bowl,no spares so you could only have fruit or cereal as bowl was taken away when youre breakfast arrived,with only one slice of cold brown toast(no option of white toast by the way)and only two butters onthe table,only one hot drink offerd and felt very akward asking for more toast,jam came in plastic pots again for five star you would expect little glass jars.There were no pastries which again five star would have,there was no milk out for the cereal and had to use the little drop put on the table for our tea,when i asked for more i was told not everyone had cereal so we dont put it out.The eveing meal list was given to us at breakfast even though grupon had stated that the meal was on the first night we were told quiet strictly that it was always the second night,thats so she has time to get it out the freezer to defrost,it was a sham (do not have the meal)the starters were simple ie frozen breaded mushrooms (5),the main we chose was meant to be chicken chassuer(frozen made in bulk chicken casserole,not on the bone,but overcooked breast,never seen white wine tomato concass or tarragon,served wirh over cooked mushy veg,we were told mind the bowls are hot mine was but my husbands was stone cold,there was no feed back from waiting staff,no one came to ask if it was okay they just hid in the kitchen,there was no water onthe tables to drink,not even a jug on the side,the only drinks menu given was for wine no indication if they had coke beer etc,they came round with a sweet menu ,we asked for apple and blackberry crumble,but when it arrived it was apple and raspberry,my portion was half the size of my husbands,and again even though trip adviser said it was three course in the morning when we went to settle the bill she charged us 2-95 each for the shop brought crumble,frankly it was the worst meal i have ever had in a resturant.There are some lovley resturants and pubs that serve food in the local area choose one of these instead.One good thing that they had was a water cooler in the doorway which is a great idea.
