Reviewed 1 September 2008

We stayed here for two nights for a wedding in the area. Our room, which had a four poster bed with cheap unlined curtains, also had dirty windows, a chandelier hanging at 45 degrees to the ceiling (with a dead light bulb) and broken linings to both bedside lamps (which were glaringly obvious when they were switched on and had obviously been in this state for months/years). There was no full length mirror, there were several dried out damp patches on the ceiling and most of the furniture was chipped. The rubber sealant from the base of the shower screen was hanging loose and all paintwork was tatty.

On the good side, the towels were fluffy and immaculate, there was a large wardrobe and the bedlinen was clean (although the bed was dangerously high for the average short legged Brit who ight need to get out of it whilst half asleep in the middle of the night!).

After complaining (nicely) the bedside lamps were changed and the chandelier rehung properly with a working bulb. Somewhere a mirror was found (it had lumps of plaster on its back which suggested it had been ripped off some other wall!) and was left propped up in our room when we returned from a walk.

The first morning of our stay we were forcibly told by a waiter that we should have breakfast with the "wedding party" and not by ourselves, which was a bit rough since we knew none of them.

The following morning my husbands 'Full English' was dumped in front of him as he was talking to someone at our table and then promptly removed just as he was eating a mushroom from it! It was then dumped in front of the man next to him! Seconds later, the waiter returned with what looked like (and was) an identical breakfast and dumped that in front of my husband. These 3 actions all took place without a single word of explanation or even a smile.

Within two days we went to stay at the Hilton in Dubrovnik which was infinitely superior in accommodation, was properly maintained and had professionally trained staff. It cost less to stay there, including dinner every night, than for bed and breakfast at the Fawlty Farringford!
