4/10 Fair

All I can say is it was a bed for the 2 night stay....we were expecting basic but this was very very basic...no staff on duty once we were signed in...we never saw a soul again...a kettle and cups were in the room plus tea bags and coffee sachets....no toiletries in the bath room no mirror anywhere in the room..The bedding was clean..but the room was grubby and old.. .went to visit relations in Colchester for the weekend ....and only came back here to sleep :(

6/10 Good

Ok for a simple stay
The place opens at 4pm which is really late. They didn't arrive till 4.20 so we we were late checking in and had to leave right away to go to an event. The man was nice though and made us feel welcome. Free wifi that works well and the room was clean. Although no soap of any kind to wash hands or to shower with which was a shame. The staff are also not around in the morning so any help etc you might need isn't available. Not a typical B&B I would say. The outside of the B&B looks a bit abandoned and with it being closed for 20 extra minutes we were beginning to think it was! All in all, if you're just after a bed to sleep in and nothing more it was perfectly adequate.
