Guest Houses in Dumbarton
The website of Kilmalid Guest House promises a plethora of luxury. The reality is different! We paid Â£64 for a double room. The room is without an en suite, and it is spartan, being without a carpet, and with the most basic amenities. The tea/coffee facilities consisted of a token number of the cheapest teabags (undrinkable), and a few instant coffee sachets. There was only one medium towel provided for each of us. The communal bathroom is across a draughty hall, and clearly for the use of a number of the guests. In the website breakfast is presented as a veritable feast of fine cereals,muesili, Scottish porridge, haggis, black pudding, Scottish oat cakes, and unlimited toast. In actuality, there was a tired trio of the cheapest cereals, some orange juice, and the same tea/coffee as in the room. The cooked breakfast consisted of a fried egg, a small sausage, half a grilled tomatoe, and a piece of stale bread that had been fried! When we booked over the telephone they took down our credit details, but on payment, they demanded cash. Overall, the website is designed to be wholly misleading. This was a mean experience, and one which should be avoided as for the same sum there are a number of other places which will provide greater comfort, and more value for your money.
