I booked a room in the Richmond B & B to travel to a business meeting the next day,Phil was very pleasant and came out to meet me but this is a Bed And Breakfast and not a hotel, the decor was tired and it was not very clean. However I decided to make the best of it and went into my room and put the light on after going out for a short walk, to discover three wasps in my room. I went to ask Sarina if they had something to kill the wasps with but was informed they didn't kill them and I could expect a couple of wasps in my room as they did come in!!.Phil came up to catch them by which time there were about 20 wasps crawling from under the dressing table and when he hit the pelmet there was a nest and they all started swarming, he did try to get alternate accomodation but there was nothing available so had to drive 4 hours home at 23.00 and miss my appointment, The least they could have done was to phone the next day to find out if I had arrived safely and apologize.
