Could not get to the property for the first night's accommodation due to circumstances out of our control and requested a cancellation, 30 minutes after the booking was made and paid but was refused. Rooms smelled and was not clean and dilapidated. Shower was dirty. Communal lounge area was just outside our room and the other guests were noisy and was listening to music.

Absolutely terrible. Dirty carpets, windows, linen. There is no water due to drought, no drinking water available. Cupboard doors broken, food from previous visitors still in cupboard, resortanager having party above our room, wooden walkways are rotting, lights not working, no room service due to covid, cups not washed and no facilities to wash them, free parking is outside on the road with no security. Just run down and unkempt. Booked out 8pm on second night (of 6) night stay. Advertised abs breakfast inclusive, but on arrival, charged extra. WiFi not working. A dump

Make sure when people arrive they find someone. The place is just like a ghost house without anybody to share a word like in other B&B. The reason people prefer B&B is for experience and memory. I suggest that you must make sure that you make sure that Air-condition are working properly. especially in room 7

HAve stayed at this guest house before and feel that the standards have dropped from a few years ago. The room faced the street, and guests were loading up at 3am and took an hour and was disturbed by the noise. Toilet seat was loose and breakfast was very average. Limioted options of breakfast cereals, fruit, limited ingredients for the omelette. Also, I had enquired about an upgrade and although there were cheaper upgrade options, in terms of rooms, they gave me the most expensive upgrade option, which was a waste, due to all the noise, etc. Helpfull staff, but I think they can do better, especially at the cost. Breakfast really needs to be improved. NO coffee machine. NO fresh juices. All of these things were there before. Why the change and downgrade the facilities?
