I chose the guest house because of reviews saying how charming it was - and I guess, with a bit of housekeeping it could be - but the dirt - oh my goodness.
The carpet in my room had not been vacuumed before my visit and the level of dust was awful - the curtain pelmet was thick with dust and the bathroom had thick mould all over the sealant. God knows when the bath mat was last washed - it appeared welded to the floor so I kept my flipflops on for the whole visit.
Without doubt the host is lovely and offers a wide range of breakfasts. Once again, though, the dining room was really dirty - my cutlery had bits of dried on food stuck on them and I struggled to find a clean knife - and everything looked like it needed a wash at 60 degrees.
I am fussy but setting that aside the whole place was really below standard and sadly I cannot recommend it. I notice in an earlier post that Peter mentions that he has hired a cleaner. If he has, they should be sacked as the whole place is below standard. If it hadn't been for the lovely man running it, I would have given It a 1.
Be aware that creaking floors will disturb you - I was woken up at 6am on both mornings by people moving around and the door to the bathroom is almost impossible to open and close because it sticks on laminate flooring.
