Filthy and cluttered

Reviewed 11 october, 2021

I booked this as everywhere was full and unfortunately I didn’t read these reviews !! On arrival , note on door back soon But Helen was in and showed us to our room , hall very cluttered with bed linen Our room. Looked bright , but very cluttered with random pictures , small unplugged fridge stuffed in corner. Thread bare carpets with dangerous rugs on top Bathroom old , didn’t have a shower in room as she took away but didn’t update the website. Filled bath and couldn’t get the plug out so both of us had to use the same water to clean ourselves which wasn’t really a problem but unnecessary, had to just leave water in bath!!! Under the sink was thick with grim and the sink itself was filthy. On leaving to go out our bedroom door wouldn’t lock and we told Helen who said she would have a look at it. Returning back in the evening , couldn’t get in as key wouldn’t open the door that we entered initially. There was a side door which we tried the key and it opened it!!! On entering she said I had told you to use the side door !! No she had not. The living room was very cluttered snd the kitchen was very dirty looking as I went down to try snd get a glass. In the morning, again we had to fill the bath and use together As the plug stuck again. , was pleasantly surprised that the table was set for breakfast snd she cooked and catered well for me as I’m vegan. I also found the bed very comfortable , but duvet too small as it was just a double and not a kingside that would have suited the bed. Overall it was not value for money , although central it was not acceptable and had it not been that everywhere was booked I would have left. I honestly don’t like giving bad reviews , but I wouldn’t want anyone to waste their money as we had.

Booked here for 3 nights room cluttered and untidy. Cobwebs everywhere room not ready when we checked in so left bags and went out to eat. Bathroom was disgusting. After an unsettled itchy night went down to a cluttered dining room which the owner was using as a laundry room to be served with an inedible breakfast. Left that evening as myself and husband had numerous bite on legs and body. Travelled two hours home to have a shower and wash all clothing we had taken with us as could not consider spending another night in such accomadation. This place should be closed down


Shoddy and unprofessional

Reviewed 4 november, 2019

I had a number of issues when I spent one night there with my husband and 1 year old son. 1. Keys didn't work – we git back at 10pm and couldn't get in. The owner heard us trying to get and after a few minutes opened the door, no apology or surprise. 2. Cold bedroom – the bedroom was cold when we arrived at 10pm, we then closed all the windows (no idea how long they had been open but in November this was a surprise). There was no ability to heat the room ourselves and the heating didn’t come on until 8am. 3. Hole in wall in teh bedroom – There was a mirror stacked against the wall that I moved and saw a hole behind it (presumably that’s why the mirror was there) and a draft coming from the hole. 4. Out of date milk – all the sachets of milk in the bedroom expired April 2019 – 6 months ago!!! 5. Messy dining room – the dining room was cramped and cluttered. I have stayed in numerous B&Bs and would have expected a dining room with maybe some cereals and yoghurt etc to choose from. This appeared to be someone’s messy home dining room. 6. No card payment (not stated upfront) 7. Friends of the owner passing through during breakfast. Other complaints include 3 flights of narrow stairs that we weren’t told about (I had said I had a 1 year old), no coffee offered at breakfast although the tea was good, no breakfast menu so we had to guess what the owner may have in the fridge, the orange juice carton had black mould on the back, drying laundry on radiators in guest areas… So many places in Berwick, stay elsewhere.
