The owner seemed quite a nice chatty lady, but she has too much on her plate. The room seemed fine but when opening the fridge door to put in our food I was very cross. It had not seen bicarbonate and water for a long time inside and out. We found the shelves to the fridge in a drawer and they were filthy. The microwave was also needing a good scrub with hot water and bicarbonate of soda. It was only too obvious that this room is rented out for weekly workmen.
The bath/shower tap was coming off the fitting. We could only get very hot water out of it, as it would not switch over for cold water. I cooled the hot water down with cold water from the wash basin tap, using a pudding basin. It is no good sticking a notice above the tap indicating how to work it when it is so obviously broken, hanging off. Not a chore I welcomed after travelling a long way.
The bed was fine and we had a good nights sleep, but not happy. We enjoyed our trip over the mountain and back, fantastic views.
This owner needs to get some help. It is a shame as the outside looks great and the rooms too, just needs a very good clean and the bath tap repaired. Rental overpriced.
Breakfast was good. But we won't be returning.
