This was one of the most disappointing stays we've had at a guesthouse in the UK and they are definitely overpriced for what they offer. The staff are surly and do not seem pleased to be there; nor to have you there as a guest. We did not get so much as a ''Welcome'' when we arrived or even a ''We hope you enjoyed your stay'' when we checked out.
8am on both Saturday and Sunday is when they tip the empty bottles from the bar into the glass recycling bin at the back of the property. We know this because the bin was outside our window and we were jolted awake both mornings to the sounds of crashing glass. Following this, the gas bottles and trolley used to transport them were bashed around and wheeled into the building - again, right outside our window and first thing on a weekend.
The bedrooms are decidedly average and most certainly not at the level of an establishment that charges £90 per night. The mattresses are soft and pillows uncomfortable. Perhaps it explains why there are only 3 carefully chosen images of their rooms on their website.
Possibly the only redeeming feature of this inn is the food. The pub served very good food on the evening we chose to eat there and although the cold breakfast bar leaves much to be desired, the cooked English Breakfast was edible.
