The people were friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions. The room was terrible, so small that there was no place for our suitcase until we moved furniture (beds). The bed had old fashioned wire springs in the mattress that squeaked every time I moved and I had to move because it was so uncomfortable.. The bath is also the shower and they could easily add a shower curtain so that the toilet paper doesn't get wet, although the water pressure was so low it doesn't cause too much problem. The safety hand hold in the shower, was rusting and flaking - and the toilet seat was broken on one side and very dirty. Breakfast was OK. The pancakes were on the serving table the night previous as were the bread and a couple of doughnuts. The tea was hot and tasted good with the cereal.
Our mistake was to stop at the first B&B we saw because we were very tired and had to get off the road. There are a couple of B&Bs just down the road, and sight unseen, they have to be better. STAY AWAY! The place is old and has had little or no maintenance or upgrading in a long time. When we got there two other rooms were open and we looked in and they looked just like the room we had: bad design.
