Loved the view from the front door/bedroom. Didn’t realise when I booked it was a twin accom just closed off by a door in the house, the other people staying there were up late/early doing washing. Might not have stayed there if I knew this was the case

I chose the accommodation based on recommendations and the location. Despite having booked a stand alone room, staff put me in a basement room, with a kettle on the floor and a significant ant problem (limited to the bathroom). Staff also tried to get a cash payment from me, claiming that their system was down so they had not received my booking or payment. There were people above me who talked and walked around late into the night and I did not get breakfast, despite also choosing the accommodation because it was a B&B.
