4/10 Fair

A Definite Dissappointment.
We booked a b&b per the promotion but were told on arrival it was bed only. Manager did provide breakfast on first morning. Bed was awful, manager claimed it had new matress but it was very obviously not. Room lighting was poor, not possible to read by it. Very noisy due to many barking dogs and large bus engine started up at about 3:30 am close by.. At least the toilet facilities were acceptable but the sliding door came off rail. Fridge froze all food solid overnight. They did change our frozen fruit salad though. Huge and dangerous step up to access room.

We were staying at the bottom room, there was lot of noise foot steps from above and we ended up not to sleep at all the first day. The bed we slept on was so hard it is really needs to be changed.Not to mention the toilet seat..very old has dirty marks and stains. I had to shorten my days for 2days instead of 3.
