눉I was extremely disappointed with this location. I was very excited to stay here because it had good reviews and I like to stay at Bed and Breakfast locations as much as possible because I like to support local business owners. While the initial booking exchange was a bit unhelpful, the helpful information that was provided gave me hope that it was a good idea as no one is perfect. This sentiment was further reinforced when I asked if I could check in a bit earlier because I had gotten into the area earlier than expected and the owner kindly said yes. I really appreciated that. Unfortunately, that is where the courtesy ended. From the moment that I stepped into the home, I felt as an unwelcome guest, not a paying patron. Instead of being welcomed with a smile, I was greeted with information as to why I could not be helped with my suitcases, combined with unsolicited information about the location being a lost of money as opposed to a money making business. Had we been establishing a good rapport, this would have been appropriate, but it sounded more like the reason as to why she didn't care to be helpful. At some point she mentioned it was because of a bad back which I would have completely understood, but what if the guests had a bad back and didn't know that they had to climb steep steps? I know it sounds trivial, but given the overall stay, I think it's important to mention this as it represented the tone of my entire visit. People normally stay at BBs because they like to support them, so anything that is not like a hotel is not a big deal, they're used it. But, we're also used to kindness and passion in a business that we're very much used to them typically being a labour of love where the owners receive you with pride in their location and often enough go out of their way to make you feel welcome not necessarily with amenities, but with their demeanor. But, where this location lacked for amenities, it did not make up in courtesy.

눇This venue was just a few minutes away from our wedding venue in Brize Norton, and we were made welcome and were very comfortable. Our parents also stayed at the venue and enjoyed a delicious and well cooked (to their liking) steak dinner the evening before. No complaints. Thank you.

눇We had a very comfortable room with a pleasant view out to the town. The evening meal, an extra, was delicious as was breakfast. Just a brief stay but a very good one.
