webehamfam1 Couples - TripAdvisor review

The rooms are tiny and have no ventilation. They will tell you that this is because the hotel is historic. Yet, they have completely renovated these tiny rooms. Old hotels had bathrooms near an outside wall so that a window could be opened to air out the room, both for bath steem and stink. In their renovation, they put the bathroom by the room door. NO ventilation. On top of that, they have a partial wall shower that can work on larger showers. But not on small ones. Water spashes all over. Steam and stink all spilling over into a room that has only a small crack of window to open. They have a room fan. But the fan doesn't fit the socket under the window. Genious. When we entered our room, the smell of their disinfectant spray was so strong we could hardly breathe. But there was no way to ventiale it quickly. This is the 9th hotel we've stayed at on our tour through the Brittish Isles and it's the only one I'd never stay at, nor could I ever recommend it. It's also the only one that would not provide free water in the room.

Lovely stay

It was a good visit. A lot of new staff. It would be goodxto "star" your regular guests. The dining area at breakfast saw a non responsive staff to personal requests...
