I have just come back from staying at the Riverside Cottage, which I had chosen from all the lovely reviews I had read. Our first contact with the owner(don't know her name as she didnot introduce herself) was when she ask us to pay up in full, after we had just entering the door. This made us feel very uncomfortable.
We were then shown to our room. At first glance our room seemed fine but I had not entered the bathroom yet. Towel rack was rusty, mould all around the shower door. The toilet brush, well I won't go there.
The breakfast was very good and the young lady serving us was very friendly. The room you sat in for breakfast was a cafe during the day and it felt like it. No! Homely feel.
The parking is a nightmare. The write up is a little confusing as they don't have there own parking.
The views from your room are wonderful.
I have never wrote a bad review before, but I felt I needed to let others know about my experience.
Maybe I am wrong and this is what you get with a Bed and Breafast these days??
