          Dear Highgateglobetrotter, I wish I had read your review and others on Tripadvisor regarding the B&B owner and her housekeeper prior to booking accommodation for myself and my mother. I would then have been more prepared for the extremely cold and unwelcoming attitude, the fact that the housekeeper felt it appropriate to enter our bedroom whenever she liked with no knock on the door - in fact she moved our belongings and made our beds while we were at breakfast. I was told not asked - to not stroke the dog and to move my car. We were informed what time we would eat breakfast, when we declined dinner the temperature in attitude from Sarah the owner went down by several degrees and it was already below freezing. We felt we were in the way of her house party of Belgium guests who were also staying at this B&B when we were. I very much had the impression that because I arrived in my (6 year old) Fiesta I was not the kind of guest they wanted. I was so disappointed in the attitude I received from the owner and staff as I really wanted a lovely relaxing weekend for my Mum - this was her only holiday this year, sadly we were totally mislead from reading the rave reviews from so many other people. We informed Sarah we would not be staying the two nights as we had booked but would be leaving after one, very uncomfortable night, and were again "told" not asked to go and wait for her in the Drawing room while she finished what she was doing. At this point I handed her the cash for our stay and walked out - I have never been treated so disdainfully by anyone. Sarah and her housekeeper really need to find another way to supplement their income what is less inconvenient to them. Or they need to screen their guests for appropriateness before letting them book. So my question is more of a comment and an agreement with what you have said and previous guests - why oh why did I only read the good reviews and dismiss the bad?
