I met up with my mother upon her arrival in Skegness who was staying at this guesthouse for one night, in order to help her with her bags etc. up to her room. The landlady's manner was quite abrupt and explained that it is a guesthouse, not a hotel, it was her home, and that people's guests were not allowed on to the premises. I explained that I only wanted to visit for 5/10 minutes but then she ordered us outside saying she felt uncomfortable. I felt offended at this. I understand that this is her home, but i feel that some flexibility is needed in order to portray a more homely and friendly atmosphere.
I visit Skegness a lot and enjoy trying out different hotels, but this is one that I shall not stay in unfortunately due to the negative manner of the landlady.
