just a youth hostel

Stayed in July, booked over late rooms as b&b, but it was a youth hostel.

Horrible rooms that smelt of damp and long hair in the breakfast. Got ignore by all staff at breakfast because we came down at 8.45 and breakfast stops at 9.

2 nights at Brathay Hall

The main function of Brathay is as a centre for young people to experience the outdoors.

As such this "outward bound " atmosphere was reflected in our B&B experience. Limited reception and bar facilities, limited food choice and a room that was left uncleaned over 48 hours.
