This b&b has 3 rooms 1 en-suite and with a shared bathroom. I called the owner to enquire and was told the single room had gone and was offered the twin for the same price without breakfast as she said no one had taken it so she would do it cheaper than normal. I hesitated in booking so she said i could have tea and cereal in the morning.. I then called later and booked it as i couldn't find anywhere else for the days i wanted.
There is parking on the drive, but you would probably block or get blocked in, so i parked on the road instead.
I received a warm welcome from the owner and then asked to take my shoes off downstairs (i can understand you want to keep your carpets clean).
I was shown to my twin room which looked ok but i felt cold after about 3 hours of the rad being on and asked for a heater which i never got.
The shared bathroom is next door to the twin so if you have a early riser in the morning like the chappy that stayed here same time as me then you may get a liitle disturbed.
I didn't get the breakfast that was promised at the start. I mentioned it on my last night and the owner said she got muddled up and offered it on my last day but i declined.
The shower runs of the immersion heater and gave me about 10 mins of hot water then went luke warm so if you like a longer shower then the night before or get in before the other guest (if there is anyone staying :)
Also there is a cat, which i have nothing against but i would prefer not to stay in places that have dogs or cats due to there hairs getting everywhere. This should be stated on their website (it isn't) and also mentioned when booking. What would the owner do if someone turned up and was allergic to cats?????
Internet worked well :)
Overall it was ok!!!
