Bed and No Breakfast
Posted Aug 20, 2014 on Hotels
I thought I was booking into a bed and breakfast, having been fooled by the picture of the pretty dining room, but when we arrived we were informed that because we had booked through a booking service, we had booked the room without breakfast, and would we like to add breakfast (for an additional fee of course). Apparently, when you book through a booking service, the inn books the room without breakfast to make the rates appear lower. I would not have stayed here at the rate I paid if I had known that breakfast was not included. I felt defrauded. Adding to the insult, we were required to remove our shoes at the door, to protect the floors. Our room was in the attic at the top of a steep, narrow, treacherous flight of stairs, totally devoid of charm, with a chamfered ceiling for you to bump your head on, and a bathroom door that would not close. Nothing like the pictures in the ads with charming four poster bed etc. The only good things I can say was that it was well located and clean.
