I booked this "B&B" through Booking.com and when we arrived there, we were greeted by a lady who barely spoke any English and was quite rude. We had to pay the full amount on arrival, which was advised at the time of the booking.
When we went up to our room I wanted to vomit, the smell of dampness, stains of grease, bathroom facilities in a very poor state, we were given two towels and we did not even get hand towels or a bath rug. The drawers and closets in the room had not been cleaned in ages, there was dust, hairs.. so I decided to keep all my belongings in my suitcase.
The biggest joke is yet to come, according to this lady, breakfast was continental,this translated on our first morning into expired milk, stale cereal, no coffee, disgusting watery orange juice and gone off butter. I never had breakfast there again for the rest of my stay.
No one came cleaning our room during our stay, we even had to empty the bins and wash the coffee mugs in the bathroom sink ourselves!
I would also like to mention that the pictures on this website have nothing to do with the real state of the place, which is falling appart.
Do not stay here.
