We picked Blakes for the price and location. Sadly, we did not get a decent sleep when we stayed there. The boiler in our room was so noisy that every time someone uses the loo, there was a piercing noise filling our room. The bed was so bad that my husband and I were forced to roll right in the middle of the bed (romantic...right). So, you can imagine how annoying it was at 5am with the boiler going off, waking up a couple of hours later with a sore back and not enough sleep. Complementary tea/coffee was a nice touch, only that the heating coil in the water jug was all rusty. There was scaffolding covering our view of...nothing really. So, we shouldn't have minded scaffolding as our scenery. I don't understand what kind of B&B wouldn't ensure that their guests have a decent night's rest by testing that the facilities were up to scratch (noisy boiler, crap bed, rusty water jug). The staff are quite friendly, yes, but you can hardly stand upright in the basement pub.
