We stayed at some wonderful B&Bs on our trip to Ireland. Highfield was not one of them. Maybe we were spoiled but this place did not please us.
OUr room was tiny. Maybe it was a closet in the past? Bathroom had dirty glasses, very dim lights but we could still see the dust and spider webs. It needed a good scrubbing and cleaning!
The worst thing were the beds and the noise. We had two beds in the tiny room. My matress was lumpy, crooked and had no support. The other was not much better. Very uncomfortable night. There was a lot of traffic noise from the highway in front of the house. We did not sleep well.
Breakfast was a disaster. Eggs cooked to a rubbery crisp that we tried to eat but gave up on. We were glad to leave. What can I say about the hosts? Not much because we hardly saw them. They were happy to take our money in the morning. I did not think it was money well spent.
At other B&Bs we stayed at the hostess always asked if we slept well and liked our stay. At this one they did not ask. I guess they knew better.
