Booked for a long weekend and left a day early, arrived on the Friday afternoon to be greeted by the owner in her pyjamas. Showed us to our room but that was all, didn't get shown where the toilet or shower room was. The room was dirty and the B&B smelt of alcohol and cigarettes. We didn't have any towels in our room and the bottom of the kettle was black!! We were woken up on the first night by the owners arguing at 2am in the morning and could here nothing but swearing. Wouldn't advise families to book this B&B as its totally inappropriate for kids to be around. The shower was absolutely disgusting and was turned off from someone half way through taking a shower. The toilet roll wasn't replaced so we had 2 days with no toilet roll. Very bad experience and would definitely not be back to this B&B.
