When we arrived the front door was open but there was nobody inside – a passer-by told us we had to go to the pub across the road to get service and that was not as welcoming as one would hope for. There was a peculiar smell on entry to the guest house – musty perhaps. Then the bedroom had no TV, no tea and coffee making facility, no glasses (or plastic cups), no soap, only one shampoo, the shower head spewed water upwards and over the shower unit drenching the towels and everything else and after all that we discovered there was no Wi-Fi (albeit that a previous review said it had)! Then to top it all there was construction work happening behind the property right outside our room where the work started early on Saturday morning with the noise of cement mixer and concrete cutters and the general noise of building activity. Spoke to the owners by phone afterwards and while apologies were offered they defended their side of the argument. While the staff were very pleasant at breakfast and the breakfast itself was good we will not be returning and definitely would not recommend.
