A beautiful hotel in a once beautiful quiet residential location but...Brochure out of date, states off road parking - yet only for 5 cars, has 8 bedrooms. Host also parks there. 1st night we had to park on the road, respecting driveways ended up 400 yards away - and I forgot something in the night. Hosts very nice couple, lady not well, so feel guilty complaining but we are well travelled doing my birth family research & meeting them these last 5 years - worst night sleep I ever had in a 'hotel' which only has guest house facilities but charged high hotel prices.
Poky standard double, had to tell each other when we wanted to move, had to roll across the bed when we had the case stand open, websites stated autumn breaks deals, there were none, and pleasant views of area or river Otter estuary, estuary is obliterated by houses, we had view of house across the street, they had a good view of us as there were no net curtains.
Headboard banged on the wall when we moved in bed, memory foam mattress on top of ordinary one, which moved in the night. Partner ended up hanging out of the bed while i was across the join of the mattresses, hurt my back, made up bed in the night. Was unable to get out of shower when partner was in bathroom, again very small and very like a cross channel ferry shower, unable to open wardrobe door if suitcase holder in use, stuffed 1 holdall in to wardrobe and 1 on the top of it. Hosts changed room at a high price. Gave us the disabled room, style of lighting and minimalistic design made me feel I was in hospital. 2 beds badly zipped together, lump in the middle, slipped every time I sat on it, good job we were not disabled, duvet too small, no blanket provided, green neon exit sign in room lit all night, had to drape towel over it, again if we opened the wardrobe door we could not be at the dressing table, or vice versa yet room was large - Ground floor room that everyone could see in to from outside, nice view of garden, guests had nice view of us again, wet room, everything got wet, no hooks in wet room or bedroom, flimsy plastic bedside lamps kept falling over, wash basin so small unable to get travel kettle under to make tea. Flimsy toiletry stand fell over if you put your toiletries in it, no soap holder in shower, Brochures states evening meal available, not so. No newspapers, bar locked with shutters down and a could be lovely lounge with light sturned off and uninviting. 'Hotel' had daily private functions, our room access was reached through the function room, Smelled of paint when we arrived. Bright and cheery breakfast room (which doubled as the function room) with Self service for cereals juices which were ample and toast your own bread too thick for toaster, which I set it on fire. Too thick even for the toast rack so I rammed the toast in it smothering the white cloths with crumbs, nice english breakfast, host says they had been there a long time but didn't know the area, or our last B&B in Budleigh which had closed. Never again.
