Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Could have been better!!
Room ok, could have been cleaner ( blinds etc) didn't get cleaned the whole time we were there ( 3 days should have been 4) then asked to strip bedding and put in bin liners ourselves when we left!! Now we know the COVID situation is putting extra pressure upon these establishments but after staying in another B&B just a few weeks ago there was no comparison in establishments as the one a few weeks ago was cleaned everyday with new bedding and towels, think the owners are missing a trick here as the pub/restaurant was fine but don't seem to bothered about the B&B side of it!!
