Terrible experience.

Arrived shortly after 3pm to find the place locked. Had to wait in cold and rain until almost 5pm when someone arrived to open up. Booked as bed and breakfast but told breakfast not included. Bed collapsed when sat on. Boy who repaired said it's always happening and one of the slats came out during the night when I turned over. Springs from mattress dig into body so had to sleep on top of folded quilt fully dressed. Two light bulbs were blown.

Never again
