"Makes Fawlty Towers look like a boutique hotel!!!!!!!"

"Makes Fawlty Towers look like a boutique hotel!!!!!!!"
The worst place I have stayed in. The room was cramped - mould in shower, rust in shower, broken towel rail - but great view from window of the little beach and the sea. Staff were very unfriendly. No real sense of being welcome in the pub. The worst bit was the breakfast - the fruit looked as if it had been stood out for weeks, the glass jugs were smeared with finger prints, there were crumbs and hair on the table. Then there was a piece of pan scourer in my bacon. Read less
Likes:
The location is wonder - such a shame about the pub as with a location like this they are sitting on a goldmine.
Dislikes:
See above. This is the sort of place that could do with one of those make over programmes - such a lot of potential.

Likes:
Good pub atmosphere and really lovely friendly staff.
Dislikes:
Breakfast only just adequate, small things would have made a big difference, e.g salt and pepper on each table, more butter and fruit. Windows in need of a good clean to appreciate view.

"Fabulous Location"
This is a fabulous little place, very old, full of history. The pub is just what you would expect from a 17th century inn - low ceilings, beams etc. The accommodation is surprisingly modern, though, and has been very tastefully upgraded; the bedroom we stayed in was light, airy and very comfortable. The food isn't haute cuisine, but home cooked and very tasty, no pretensions, and a good vegetarian selection considering the small size of the menu. We had a very pleasant stay here. Read less
Likes:
The accommodation was cosy, comfortable & welcoming.The place is unpretentious - a welcome change from boutique style establishments and over-priced 'top chef'cooked food. The location is stunning.
Dislikes:
We honestly can't think of anything we didn't like.
