1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The entrance from the en-suite back to the bathroom is so low that on return from the bathroom during the night I banged my head and knocked myself out. When I came too I had to leave and seek medical attention. I also got bitten by something whilst asleep or unconscious. It does refer to "1 bar" under food and drink and as this place was a pub you presume that's what your going to get, A good pint and a hearty breakfast but there is no "bar" and no food. Continental breakfast promised never happened. The room was cold. There heating was off. The bed sheets were cold and damp and the stairs carpet was dirty. The kitchen area was also dirty. The worse place i have ever stayed at and at a price of a 4 star hotel in london.

What a Great B&B!!
This is a great B&B run by Claire who is an amazing host. The room was warm and comfy with shower ensuite. A range of other rooms are available. Breakfast is a very generous continental style with Boiled Eggs and a huge choice of bread, croissants, pain au chocolat, fruit, cereals inc muesli and granola and the old favourites in individual boxes. Teas and coffee are available all day long and again the choice is amazing. Will will definitely be coming back.
