Last week, I took up on a recommendation from this forum to go to Redwood Lodge before my main board. However, I personally found it a rubbish B & B! The room was like a LLewelyn-Bowen nightmare. The landlady was annoying as hell, way too mumsy and patronising. We didn't get on. I also thought I would get my own room, considering it is the civllian B&B part of the trip and I was paying for it. She makes you share and doubles her profits. Just thought I'd balance up the feedback, so you know what you are in for. I stayed at the Cedars before my briefing, a proper hotel.
