Booked 2 rooms for bed, breakfast & evening meal for a 3 night stay with family. A little strange on arrival as the front door was locked, rang several door bells (most of which appeared to be broken) but finally found the only working one (might be a good idea to provide a notice for arriving guests as to which bell works). Shown to our rooms by a guy dressed in scruffy jeans & none to clean rugby shirt but he seemed friendly enough. The rooms were clean, comfortable & fairly large with a good supply of the usual milk, coffee etc. The ensuite was clean but with a very, very small shower with no room to move. Wanted to have a bath but was informed the shared bathroom suite was broken & could not be used. No soundproofing at all so could hear people talking in their rooms whilst my bedroom, shower and even the guest lounge! Breakfast was ok but the evening meal left alot to be desired, so my advice is not to book the evening meal option. But the strangest thing about this guest house is that there is no reception area or desk, if you need anything you have to ring a bell on the wall in the hall. There seems to be no staff around in the hotel at all day or night only at meal times. and when you checkout there are still no staff around so you just leave your key on a coffee table in the hall and go!
It's not that there is anything greatly wrong with this guesthouse it's just a bit of an odd setup.
