Closed
When I arrived the premises was closed. Luckily the owner answered the phone and opened up as he said he hadn’t had notification of booking. He opened up for me and gave me a room. But breakfast was supposed to be included but no facilities for breakfast, dinner or even drinks as basically the premises were closed
