The owner seemed to lack any social skills and when trying to communicate with her would look elsewhere and start running her fingers across the woodwork as though she had no interest in speaking to us.
We were quickly shown to our room and then the owner walked off whilst still talking to us, I had to follow her on to the corridor so I didn't have to shout to communicate back.
We were asked to fill in a registration form which she seemed not to understand herself.
The room although large seemed dank and was finished to a very poor standard. The bathroom in particular was a very bad DIY job, the door would not close. There was also quite a gap in the wall where a fan had been fitted, so much so that daylight shone through. The whole room smelt of cheap toilet cleaner.
For breakfast we had cereal followed by scrambled eggs on toast, all the ingredients seemed very cheap and bland. Our eggs were extremely over-cooked and the portions were also small.
We paid £60 and felt loathed to pay it, the place should not have a three star rating. We saw another B&B across the road (The Old Dairy) and wished we had stayed there.
