We were arriving late for check in so we contacted the property a few hours in advance and got detailed instructions to get to our room. Free parking, comfy bed, room was quiet, good breakfast.
The style of the room was not of our taste, but this is a personal view. There were some free parking spots but since it is small I can see that it fills up quickly.
We would have liked a cooked breakfast
The staff was friendly and very helpful. It's such a lovely setting, very central and close to a lot of attractions. The rooms are tidy and have everything you need.
There was nothing not to like.
We got to the Shandon Bells B&B and were shown our room. It was really small and dated, but figured it was only for one night so it would be fine. Since it was dinner time, we decided to freshen up and grab a cab to take us to the restaurant. Once we got back, we decided to lay down on TOP of the bedspread to get off our feet for a little while since we had been going non-stop since early morning. My husband realizes that the bed is soaked and and there was a leak coming from the ceiling. It was so wet that it seemed like it had been dripping for quite some time (days, really). By this time, it was after 9:00 pm and were unable to get ahold of anyone this causing us to leave the property and pay for another room elsewhere. We haven’t heard back from the property on getting our money back and it’s been a few days now. Needless to say, we will NOT be returning here.
Excellent position, near to the city center, restaurants and shops. Friendly staff.
