On arrival it looked pleasant enough. A small well kept reception area. The lady at the desk welcomed us and although our room was not ready we were shown where we would be staying and were directed through the kitchen down some external steps across a patio with some seating and pointed in the direction of a shed with a wooden painted peeling door with a padlock. I thought surely not !! It was attached to other out buildings with laundry equipment in them. We went off to meet our daughter but was given a key to let ourselves in to the main door that night The place was deserted that night we couldn't find our bags that were promised to be placed in our " room". My husband found them in the kitchen area. And indeed we let ourselves into the outdoor bedroom and discovered a bedroom area behind the shed door if was reasonably clean although pillowcases were of different colours one brown two white and a small shower room with a tap on the sink that came off in your hand when used the side window looked out onto a concrete wall inches away from the glass and I felt that if a fire broke out we would have no chance of escape. The breakfast was good but were we're served in the kitchen where one of the male staff had an awful cold sniffing and blowing his nose and not washing his hands after which I found very off putting We have stayed in dozens of hotels around the world and in this country and I have never had such an odd unsettling experience as this. I asked the other guests what their rooms were like inside the b&b and they were happy but they were bemused that we were placed in a garden shed that from the outside viewing no one would know was there. £96 !!!!!! Do not accept their " garden room"" when offered
