The rooms were desperately in need of a refurb. I was told the chef didn't start early enough to accommodate cooked breakfasts before 9am but packed breakfasts could be provided. Booked 3 rooms for 3 nights for chaps working in the area, with a possible 4th night, only to find on their arrival that there was no chef full stop ! What a way to end a hard day's work, returning to a hotel with no hot food.Couldn't be more disappointed. When I spoke to the manager not an apology, just on the defensive and came across quite angry, said it wasn't his fault, the Chef had walked out and no replacement until July and the chaps were grown men and could easily go and find food elsewhere for themselves and that his restaurant was quite pricey anyway and probably wouldn't have been suitable for our chaps and that they only advertised as a B and B. Was kind enough to not charge for the last night as the chaps left early and did provide packed breakfasts. Said that he had no contact details to contact us to warn us prior to arrival. We won't be going back.
