We arrived to find the appearance of the building did not match the photo, clearly it had been taken some time ago. We were welcomed by the owner who was more officious than friendly and provided a tired overview of the history. We were bustled up to our room and given brief instructions on how to get in and out of the building without assistance with a sense of "we don't want to be bothered". Rooms have now air conditioning and we were advised to open the window and fit an expanding fly screen which fitted with gaps allowing mosquitoes access. The building has some great history but needs a good restoration. Breakfast is only served between 8:30 and 9:30 in the dining room where you will find cereals and toast. The owner popped out from the kitchen in shorts and thongs and greeted us with "Eggs and bacon?", I don't believe we had any option. Food was ok but short in quantity. In an area with lots of quality B&Bs, we will not return.
