guess if you pay £55 for a B&B in a "boutique" hotel - i should be wise enough to know beforehand there maybe a catch!
chose this place from the SIGNPOST Selected Premier Hotel 2010 guide book - not sure who or how the places are selected but i now would be wary of their advice.
upon arrival, even the grubby front door is a warning and the tacky local area - the decor is boutique in apsiration but sadly so badly put together, your eye is drawn to the terrible decorating work. black carpets are chic but not when kept 100% clean and even before entering my room (cupboard!) the marked wallpaper just deflates ones' expectations.
anyone traveling solo who suffers from agrophobia, do not stay in the single room! the height of the ceilings is fantastic but sadly the floor space minimal and the added surprise is the door (cupboard door) to the bathroom.
i advised the receptionist about the badly running power shower ie more water coming out of the top than the bottom and she kindly offered to sort it out, but a bit late after the event!
the usual lights bulbs that dont work, no ventilation in the internal bathroom and a sink that never emptied as you used it - overall a poor experience
in fairness, the only two staff i met were exceedingly helpful and breakfast was good but the place needs a bit more tlc and tidy to make it live upto "boutique" standard
