Dissatisfied customer

First, my trip was neither business nor pleasure but an urgent 'errand of mercy' for my son who was seriously ill.

My wife booked the facility on line and was left with the clear impression that I would be staying at 178 London Road which looked admirable. On arriving I was immediately re-directed to another, much lesser facility, whilst the bed-room itself was clean and comfortable I was not at all happy with the shared bathroom facilities. The breakfast arrangements were far from being a full cooked breakfast - was just bread for toasting. Perhaps the most disconcerting aspect of my one night stay was that an occupant of another room snored all night. Whilst, of course,one cannot blame the owner for this, the fact that his bedroom was on the ground floor and my own room was on the first floor shows that there is a real lack of soundproofing or similar. One just does not expect to be kept awake for the best part of the night by someone snoring on another floor. I left the pre-arranged sum of £65.00 but in retrospect regret doing that as the value was in no way representative of that sum of money. I rang the owner the next morning to make him aware of my views on his facility. I would never suggest to anyone that they stay at 178, London Road as they might end up in this far lesser facility.

First of all we are sorry that you were dissatisfied with his

accommodation, but that was what his wife had

inadvertently booked.

I do not have twin rooms in the B&B, and the Laterooms website makes it

quite clear that I have two types of accommodation. Normally if people

have booked the self-catering apartments they are perfectly happy with

everything and it is just the very few people who have not read it correctly

and are therefore disappointed that make complaints. There is plenty of

food for a continental breakfast provided, and I of course cannot provide a

cooked breakfast there.

I will however discuss with Laterooms whether I can sort out two totally

different headings for the various accommodations.

Kind regards,

Carol Nicol

Be careful when booking a room with these people.

The main b&b is good with nice rooms and good breakfast. If you book an apartment down the road its small, fusty, tired, could be sharing with another couple sharing a bathroom not acceptable. Hated it isn't the word, didn't want to eat or use anything there as felt very clean. Breakfast was fruit in a bowl, cereal in Tupperware, used butter in fridge which is disgusting. Just couldn't wait to get out of there. It's rented out to workers in the week!!!!!
