We were told that continental breakfast was included in the tariff. In reality it was a packet of cheap white sliced bread, a few Weatbix in a large box, 3 packets of cornflakes and 4 sachets of muesli. That's pretty much it. It's presented on a bench in a tiny kitchen, complete with an ironing board and 2 stored chairs. I asked if I could possibly have some fruit or yogurt, but was told this was not possible. The dishes were to be washed by the guests, so you can imagine how clean they were.We stayed for 6 nights and the bread was finally restocked on our last morning. (The previous day all that was left were 2 crusts). EVERY night I had to go down to ask that the milk be restocked. WiFi was not available as there "was a problem with the modem". I love Battery Point, but avoid the Shipwright Arms!
