“Clean but wouldn't stay again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

This was our first experience of bed and breakfast accommodation. We booked a twin room for one night. We were warmly welcomed by the owner. The house was immaculate throughout with colour co-ordinated bedding and curtains. The room contained two single beds plus bunk beds and a very large wardrobe and dressing table. One bed had a bedside cabinet and lamp and the other had neither as there wasn't room. There was a small TV perched on top of the wardrobe that couldn't be seen by one bed. The bathroom was small but serviceable with shower only.
What surprised us was the do's and don'ts plastered on the doors and walls on laminated cards. Don't eat takeaways, don't leave the bathroom light/extractor on over night, don't lean on the towel rail and most bizarre of all "remove all traces of make-up before using the faceclothes or towels".
We booked bed and breakfast but if you want a full English or Continental you have to pay another £4 each otherwise the choice is beans, mushroom or egg on toast. Considering that we paid £65 for the night we felt that was outrageous. There was cereal or fruit juice and the poached eggs (from her own hens) were lovely and the one cup of coffee was fresh.
Maybe all B&Bs are like this but I think we'll stick to hotels in future.

Thank you for your review. The room you were in has the beds opposite each other, so if someone is lying down on the one bed, they cannot see the TV. There is therefore an armchair at the end of this bed to rectify this problem.

Unfortunately signage is necessary. We have guests stay from all over the world, proved by the visitors book, from different cultures and with different habits. Takeaways have stained bedding, fans are noisy and have burned out from being left on all night, towel rails have been bent and broken from being used as handrails and make-up has been removed on towels which does not wash off. Carpets have been melted and furniture ruined from the use of travel irons. All of the above have had to be replaced.

Breakfast consists of a choice of fruit juices, a good selection of cereals or porridge, beans, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, fried eggs or mushrooms on a selection of toast. Together with a choice of a selection of teas or coffee instant or ground. I am quite happy to provide more than one cup of either, if requested. A courtesy tray is also provided free in all bedrooms to make further drinks. All of the above is included in the price and prepared fresh to order. A nominal charge is made for a full English or Continental breakfast which has been successful in reducing food wastage and was initially suggested by several guests who all frequently stay in b&b's throughout the country. This is standard practise in many b&b's.

I do not want to be like a hotel and have no staff. I strive to provide a friendly welcome, comfortable and clean accommodation and a good breakfast, which I did achieve. I hope my guests feel that they have stayed in a friend's home rather than a hotel.
