Lovely town - house was ok but not brilliant
After I made the booking, the owners promptly texted to give me the code for the front door as no one would be in when we arrived (9pm) which was very helpful. The house itself is a charming, traditional townhouse but it did feel odd to be in a house with other guests but no staff presence at all. Our room was (unfortunately) not clean - dirty tissue in the shower, dirty sock left, dust on the side tables, shower light not working. Because there was no staff, it wasn’t possible to change rooms. Dogs are welcome which is why we choose to stay here but the room was a bit cramped for the three of us. There was a party of fisherman who used the lounge until after 11pm which didn’t bother us but if we had been travelling with kids who were trying to sleep it may have been an issue as you can clearly hear noise coming up the stair. All in all not a bad stay but just a bit strange to be given access to a house with other guests we didn’t know and sort of left to our own devices. Felt more like an Air B and B than a regularly B and B (but without the benefit of having sole access to a property). A lovely house but not the experience I was hoping for given the price.
