A b&b that doesn't provide basic toiletries is a bit unusual. That it doesn't even put a hand towel in the "bathroom" seems miserly. It also makes operating the broken lock with a wet hand more difficult. To call a shower room a "bathroom" when it is so small that you can put your foot on the toilet seat to dry off while still standing in the shower cubicle is stretching the name a touch. A "beautiful room" doesn't usually have painted woodchip on the walls, loose wiring to one of the bedside lights and no light above the (not matching the rest of the room) mirror over the sink.
There is something strange going on with the floors in this place, they seem to go everywhere except in a level plane. Quite disconcerting and disorienting.
To get anywhere near satisfactory: provide toiletries, do some maintenance, provide two towels per person rather than one, put a hand towel in the "bathroom", put a bin in the "bathroom" (otherwise what's the point of the sanitary bags?).
The proprietor was very friendly at breakfast, although I would have liked to be asked if I wanted butter on my toast. Is there another dining room because the breakfast room was tiny for the number of rooms in the place. There were place settings for ten people (which would have been crazy) but there are something like 8-10 rooms.
