My Husband and I arrived for one night in June to attend a wedding. On arrival to pick up our keys, the landlady showed me to my room which, I was shocked to discover was a twin room. My husband had booked a twin by mistake but my daughter had put in under special request, that we actually wanted a double. The lady said that they had no doubles available so we could "push the beds together" ourselves.My husband and I have four kids and never get away so this was so disappointing. When we came home at 11.30pm, we pushed the beds together to see dust balls all over the floor where the bed had been!!. The room was only big enough for one person, very outdated with dark furniture and faded colours. The next morning, we decided to shower and wanted to shower together but this was impossible due to the ensuite being tiny. My husband found an old shower gel container from the previous guest left in the shower cubicle, a big black hair and black pubic hairs in the hand basin!!. The mini hair dryer blew when i plugged it in to dry my hair and there was a smell of burning. I really could have been electrocuted. I was disgusted as it had definetely not been cleaned. When he turned on the shower which dripped out as it was definetely not a power shower, the water was freezing!. He called the man up to check it for us. The man came in and said "yeah, thats, it, its working fine"!!. My husband looked at him and said that the water was freezing so the man said to give him 10 minutes to put the immersion on and heat the water!!. Bearing in mind, that the latest that they serve breakfast is 9.45am and both of us had to shower was outrageous!. We waited 30 mins and the water was still freezing so my Husband held the shower over me while I jumped in, washed my hair quickly and got out and vice versa. Breakfast room was tiny and whilst the man was polite, he informed me that at 9am in the morning that he had run out of brown/soda/wholemeal bread and gave me white toast with no explanation and it was only when i said that i wanted brown that he said that they had run out!!. Another guest gave me some of theirs!!. He never asked me how I wanted my eggs cooked and as I have a catering background, i found this bizarre. The cereals were in their original boxes left in the corner on a sideboard and the milk and orange juice had been left on our table prior to arriving in the breakfast room so we had no idea how long that they had been sitting there. He proceeded to serve me a fried egg that was as hard as bullets, sausages that were like rubber from being re-heated and one piece of white pudding!!. Tomato ketchup was plonked on the table with its Lidl label stuck on the side. He couldnt even put it in dish and the cheap table did not even have a table cloth to cover them. When the landlady asked for her 70euro for the night, I was so upset!. It would have been cheaper,easier and cleaner to have gone home which was only an hour away. We did go home and had to have a shower as we felt so unclean and ripped off after that horrible stay. We have travelled worldwide and it is safe to say, that it was substandard accommodation and the worst place we have ever stayed. We wanted a nice romantic night away from the usual stresses of home but instead ended up running home to have a shower!!. I cannot recommend this place as it is not suitable to accommodate guests. I would have found a hostel cleaner and cheaper. This place made Fawlty Towers look like five star accommodation!!
