2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Bad bed and breakfast
Very disappointed, room was average , shower was either cold or scalding hot and very difficult to regulate and electrical switch controlling the shower was faulty and only worked after continuously flicking the switch on and off and the tv didn’t work as it was unable to tune in to any stations and the so-called breakfast well a brown bag put outside your door with some fruit and a couple of small yoghurt pots and a couple of cold boiled eggs is not my idea of a breakfast The laminate floor was also breaking up in places and therefore potentially dangerous if walking over in on bare feet When mentioning these points to the owner he disagreed and said that effectively that there wasn’t a problem Would not recommend this b&b to anyone Just to let people know I’m not the sort of person who usually complains about anything but I feel angry and disappointed to pay £75 for such a bad experience and would hate for this to happen to anyone else
