This B&B was very disappointing.The hostess was neither friendly nor unfriendly.No effort was made..guest area smelly(musty) and dusty. A cooked breakfast was not offered and what was was very average.I think this B&B owner is out of touch with the calibre of other guest houses. Certainly not value for money.
