Poor cleanliness

Room 4 had cob Webb’s on bedside lamp and toilet dirty ! Dust on most surfaces. Bacon rubbery and hash brown over cooked . Very disappointing and over priced . Not enough parking for when full .

Hi Andy, I was really disappointed to read your experience during your stay with us & my sincere apologise as this is not acceptable.This kind of service at our Guest house is not the service we are known for.We do encourage our guests to speak directly with management if they found anything which is not acceptable so the immediate actions can be taken. I hope you do give us one more chance & i am sure you won't be disappointed.

Nettes Gästehaus

Nettes Gästehaus, ursprünglich eingerichtet und sehr gut unterhalten. Teilweise etwas dunkel und schwer eingerichtet. Sauber und freundlicher Empfang. Frühstück war tip top.
