We stayed at the Field House Guest House for 2 nights and I will never be going back there again. I didn't realise that it was still legal to smoke in doors, so was in for a treat when the hosts were smoking downstairs in their living area, stinking the rest of the place out. We were consistently hassled by the owner regarding other parties cancelling late notice which was also very annoying, as I was not them.
It was also very odd how we did not receive any confirmation when booking the rooms. Had to ring back a few times to confirm that we had actually been booked it. Sure enough we had, but was also odd that we were asked to settle the bill in cash and weren't offered a receipt. Then after the bill was settled, we were told that we owed another £10 per night because we had a lake view. Having had no confirmation of the booking, this was not acceptable. We did not ask for a lake view, nor was it a particularly good view, as the lake is about quarter of a mile aware and theres just was ground behind the hotel. I didn't pay the extra £20, it was essentially daylight robbery.
The plumbing is in the dark ages. Every time upstairs went to the toilet we knew about it, put it that way.
The whole thing was a bitter taste to swallow. Its only saving grace was the breakfast was very nice indeed. But thats it really. Avoid.
