We booked into the Cheshire House B&B as a last resort, for the weekend 17th-19th May. Upon arrival we were very disappointed to find the room was extremely small - infact the double bed was not full sized and the bedside tables were small shelves attached to the wall, which were too small for the bedside lamps.
The room had a very tired, worn look, the carpet was blackened around the edges and the furniture was mismatched. We appreciate that the proprietor may not be able to upgrade the room, but there is no excuse for the standard of cleanliness, which was poor, with cobwebs around the window and bedroom door frames. The bathroom taps had scum around the base of both taps and the tiles were generally grubby.
The breakfast was good though. There was fresh fruit available, as well as the usual cereals fruit juice and a hearty full English. The location is great for walking and there are plenty of pubs and places to eat in the village.
We would definitely visit Castleton again, but would look at alternative accomodation - at £70 per night, we think this B&B is overpriced for the accommodation on offer and the standard of cleanliness should have been higher.
