Fawlty Towers Reborn?
What can I say?
Our welcome was less than friendly - in fact it was downright RUDE. Having booked online and travelled 400 miles to arrive at this, er, unusual abode, at 7.30pm (hardly an unusually tardy time to arrive) the man who answered to door didnt even bother to say hello - dumbstruck and stared down as though we were scum, we eventually decided to advise the gentleman (against our better judgement) that we had booked a room for the night.
We were then asked if we 'had our piece of paper' which apparently stated (alhough the website we booked on, bedandbreakfasts.co.uk, VERY CLEARLY states that check-in is from 2pm until 10pm) that we *had* to check in at 3pm.
Right. Nice way to treat paying guests, huh.
'This is a hotel, not a borstal' as Basil would say.
The twin room was akin to sleeping in a shed/caravan/lean to. Very bizarre indeed, complete with draughty windows, a TV that one would have to be a contortionist to watch, and a single wooden chair. Comfy.
Had we not paid for the room up front, we would have legged it down the road to a lovely, friendly looking B&B!
I've NEVER in my life experienced such utter rudeness - Basil Fawlty is reborn. DONT go and stay there unless you're in the mood for being insulted!
