Having seen the website and paid deposit by post, we were quite looking forward to visiting Oast Guest House after reading it's reviews on here and their own website.
We noticed differences between the website and reality- in as much as the 'TV lounge' pictured on the website was now a diningroom, with a sofa in it...that was the lounge, presumably for five rooms worth of guests to share!
A vegetarian menu was offered, yet they didn't have the ingredients!
Throughout our stay we almost felt as if we were an inconvenience. Toast arrived at the breakfast table before we had even sat to eat and was therefore stone cold! The coffee and tea-making facilities were downstairs, which is fair enough, but one should not have to ask daily for stocks to be replenished!
The welcome and farewell were hurried and insincere.
The Guest House was clean and the rooms were tastefully furnished with ensuite shower-rooms.
We parked in the main road and were advised no different although they state on the website there is parking.
Additional blankets were useful as the rooms didnt get very warm.
To conclude- the Guest House has so much potential, just lacked the warm welcome that can be found in so many other small hotels and guest houses, therefore won't return!
