We arranged this place at the last minute - I wish that I had done more reading! Where to start? How about when we arrived to book in and found the landlady using an industrial grade Hoffman presser doing her bedding. Not a good first immpression!
The room as OK and clean but Jan didn't sleep at all that night (Monday 19th August). I did simply becuase I was tired out by the time we arrived. The bath room was small, tight and had a mixed bathroom suite - like a pink loo with a white seat! Towels, one so-called bath towel and one hand towel, of different patterns. A second bath towel was provided as was a blanket for Jan because the duvet was too small. The advertised wi-fi wasn't working. The biggest shock was breakfast!!!
We were asked if we wanted an egg, I said a fried egg. Fine, except that I didn't get a fried breakfast, I got two fried eggs on a plate. The lass who did them claimed it is was a continental breakfast - as mentioned on the iinternet. I've looked and can't find any mention of it. Anyway, every other continental breakfast I've seen offers crosssiant, a selction of sliced meats and cheeses. I've never seen one that offers fried eggs as well. Not only that we were expected to make our own drinks and toast. The lass who was there to welcome us into the dinning room, the old luong of the pub, was the landylady's 12 year old daughter.
The area the pub is in looks a really rough place and perhaps the owners are trying to fit in with the suroundings, I don't know. One this for sure is that we will not be staying there again, ever!!!
