Nightmare stay at this b&b. Arrive no one to greet you, just a bit of paper taped to the door with your name on it, saying the room key is in the door, see yourself in. Phone the owner when you in, (very expensive if you're an international traveller) luckily Sandy the owner turned up, so no call needed.
Settled into our room in the evening, sat down to watch tv and the guys next door went for a shower and we couldnt hear the TV. No soundproofing at all. Couldn't close blinds because bed in front of window. Couldn't get overhead lights to work, later told we were using wrong switch, maybe we should have guesses it wasn't the one next to the door but the one in the smaller 2nd room.
Worst of all was woken up at 4.30 in the morning when the men next door used the bathroom and the extremely noisy shower. Then they shouted to each other for ages, then had a very loud phone call, on speaker. I don't know about anyone else but you should have consideration for other guests.
Owner said no one had complained about the noise before, maybe they didn't have workmen who get up at 4.30 before. Or maybe he should sit in that room and have someone go in the next door bathroom, we could hear everything. I don't want to listen to people pee in an other bathroom in the hall way. Couldn't get out of the place fast enough.
