“High Towers twinned with Fawlty Towers”
Reviewed 1 December 2010

Stayed just one night at this B& B - thank goodness! On a night when it was -1 outside, we arrived to an empty house and a note in the porch giving us a room number. The room was freezing cold. Neither the bedroom or bathroom radiators were working properly. I rang the bell on the door marked 'Private' and a few minutes later a woman with wet hair and a dressing gown shot out complaining that I had disturbed her shower. An interesting 'welcome'. When I explained that we'd just arrived and our room was cold, she told me that the house was hot and was heated 24/7. I asked to come and feel our radiators. Very begrudingly she did and had to agree that they were cold. Our 'hostess' said there was a fault with the heating and there was nothing she could do about it. When I suggested we move to another B&B, she reluctantly agreed that she'd try turning up the heating. Surprisingly, the radiators were hot in about ten minutes. How I wish we'd moved there and then. The bathroom was dirty - old toothpaste splashed up the walls, clumps of black hair on the floor, filthy shower panel and a cracked loo seat. The skirting boards were thick with dust. The bed was lumpy and the bedding washed until it was threadbare. It didn't look like the place had been decorated since 1970. The property overlooks the M3 and the noise was constant all night long. At breakfast we were snapped at again and were served what looked like yesterday's reheated sausages. The bowls were were given were crusted with cereal that the dishwasher had missed. The tea, however, was excellent. I have no idea why someone would consider this appropriate accommodation to offer to the public. Or why someone so ill-mannered and grumpy would be in this industry. She clearly confused the word hospitality with hostility. Avoid it!
