Hotelier with Attitude
Posted Aug 5, 2014
This was not a good experience for my husband and myself. GPS cannot be relied upon to get you to this location, and when I called to ask for directions, the owner berated me for not checking her website. Then we booking us in she berated me for going through Expedia - could have saved a bit by booking directly with her. The real shock came when, after charging our Visa card, I realised that the bathroom - described as 'detached' - really is detached because it's on the main floor and our bedroom was on the second floor. Quite a stroll in the middle of the night. The two bathrooms (for three or four guest rooms) are on the main floor - just beyond the dining room table. Under some circumstances this would mean having to walk past other guests having breakfast to get to the bathroom. We had the king size bed with mountain view - that's debatable - but the room certainly is not 300 square feet. There is no chair in the room, no glasses, and no outside lock on the door. Our stay was so unpleasant and contentious that as we packed up in the morning, my husband said to avoid any further conflict we would leave without breakfast. This move resulted in Lisa phoning my mobile three times, screaming insults at me each time (I wonder why I answered the phone...) and her final words to me were not printable - language to make a stevedore blush. This B&B (not auberge) was the absolute worst of fifteen places we stayed on our trip to the east coast; we cannot recommend it.
