Comfortable room, but lacking in the rest
Posted Sep 5, 2016
The room itself was lovely - clean and very comfortable. The rooms are in a building beside the pub. I was told breakfast was served from 7.30, and as I was on a course and had to leave early mentioned I'd like it at 7.30. This was fine on morning 1, but morning 2 when I went over it was still locked at 7.35, and in fact when I left at 8.10 there was still no sign of anyone around. Morning 3 I had to leave at 7.50, and again everything was still locked up and no sign of anyone around (I had to post my room key through the letterbox)
The main issue for me though was lack of communication with the outside world. There is no phone signal in the bedroom at all, and although they say wifi is provided - it is very weak, so is not really useable - by moving around the room devices can pick up short bursts of signal so ok for email etc coming through, but can't browse the Internet at all - it's just not strong enough. and on the 2nd evening I couldn't even access email.
If you wanted to have some time away from the world and be uncontactable, with some late starts the greyhound could work. However if you have stuff to do, want to get going in the morning and like to stay in touch with people I'd stay somewhere else.
