This B&B has strict check-in times. I arrived at 16:30 (on time) the owner was not present. 10 mins later he rolled up asking if I was waiting for him. I asked if he was the proprietor as he hadn't bothered to introduce himself. He shrugged off the fact he was late without apology simply saying he's usually there! Not true, read other reviews. The entrance vestibule was filthy, covered in scruffy hand-written notices barking do's and don't's at guests. The whole house is covered in such notices. The house smells of dogs, is very dusty and gloomy and the owner clearly has lost interest.
Although I had been led to believe from Eviivo website that a cooked breakfast was provided, I was informed that this had changed and I was asked to pay a hefty supplement (£8) for a cooked breakfast. I breakfasted elsewhere as I was put off by the obviously poor hygiene! I felt utterly misled by the 'Toprooms' description of this property and indeed my poorly rated review has been removed from their website! Disgraceful. All in all an utterly depressing experience and poor value even given the modest room rate. I couldn't wait to leave in the morning. This B&B owner is cynically exploiting unsuspecting guests and if I hadn't paid in advance, I would never have stayed at this location. The owner is as charmless and lugubrious as the property!
Please heed the low rated reviews, from my experience, they are the accurate ones!
