Very different!!

Warm welcome and excellent breakfast. Spacious room and comfortable bed in a quiet setting. But strangely no tea and coffee making facilities in the room but a small lounge area with biscuits, coffee and a great selection of teas down the corridor - not a pleasant walk in pyjamas to make morning tea. The B&B cost is quite expensive so the addition of a 5% service charge on the bill was unexpected and most unwelcome.
