Honestly - a let down. My partner had hunted this guest house down - and planned a very beautiful weekend break - but this guest house was a complete let down.
This guest house has four stars (apparently) however I am considering writing to the tourism industry to request a down grade. We were placed in a VERY musty, dusty little down stairs room - the chairs and furnishings were very old - and very dirty - I did not want to use them. The shower drain was blocked - and when I took a shower - the water didnt drain and rose to around my ankles - then to my horror - the drainage plug filter came off and out came all sorts of dirt up the drain into my shower water (now around my ankles). On top of this - when I can called the previous week to try to change the booking - firstly the woman who answered the phone clearly had a bad line - and therefore did not help me very much (as I guess she did not hear much of what I was saying ) I was then transferred to another woman - who said - 'yes we will change your booking' but they did not think it appropriate to send a booking confirmation. I was then told to wait for 15 minutes while a man was addressing my change of booking - and that he would call me back. He never did - so I returned the call only to be greeted by a VERY rude man on the other end of the phone.
Dont plan this as a romantic getaway.
On the plus side - I saw a whale in the distance.
