After 6 other phone calls to B&Bs that had no vacancies we had little choice but to accept the £95 per night offer for a double room here (it was 5.30pm by then!).
All was going well until we went to bed and the en-suite fan refused to turn off. Being tired we went off to a disturbed sleep, until by 1.30am I had had enough of the constant noisy drone of the fan. I tried to sleep but couldn't until an hour later I got up and searched around until I eventually found a master switch which turned everything off. Eventually we got off to sleep again but the night's sleep was ruined.
In the morning this was all explained to the receptionist who phoned his manager. I was offered £5 reduction for this ruined night's sleep which I found insulting and derisory, especially considering the high starting price. Further discussion met with an absolute refusal to move on this offer.
So by all means stay here, but the whole place and breakfast was distinctly average and probably was worth approx £75 per night (even with a good night's sleep) when compared to the many other B&Bs we stay in.
And I hope nothing goes wrong for you because you will be met with no sympathy or compensation.
