Having stayed at a simply lovely B&B nearby the previous weekend, I needed to be down in Devon again for work, this time bringing my two daughters and a business associate from France. First, I booked a family room for me & the kids: to be told quite abruptly the next day there weren't any family rooms left. So I was compelled to settle for a king size bed with lilliputian en-suite featuring the narrowest shower cubicle I have ever encountered. Everything about the decor was tired and very very used, including the peeling faux wood laminate loo lid. We were three (2 kids) but there were towels for only two. This miserly experience was partially offset by a reasonable English breakfast, featuring good eggs and meats but what appeared to be tinned mushrooms. This again, paled in comparison to my previous week's experience. For whole the privilege, I was charged £215 for 2 rooms for one night, compared to £80 per room advertised booking rate off the net. Stingy outfit and it shows. Money over hospitality.
