Run by scary OCD anti-smoking freaks

We arrived after a long drive, tired and hungry, only to learn that we would not be allowed to stay in this facility except in a small attic room -- because my wife smokes. Not that she was going to smoke in the room, but because she smokes at all, which she innocently told the proprietor when he asked. He immediately launched into a declaration that there were only two rooms in the attic in which he would allow a smoker to stay. We had a long, frustrating discussion in which he said we had to get our money back from the online booking, which had already been charged to my card. This was a horrible experience. Something fishy going on here... I would not feel safe at night. He finally helped us find another room nearby, and since it was off-season so that was not a problem. He paid for the room out of our fee and pocketed ten of a twenty pound difference between the prices of the rooms. Not recommended. (Duh.)

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

If you choose to stay here, lie about any smoking you do or have done because if the owner suspects you he will confine you to the attic.
