Negative Reviews


GPiece of Crap

One of the biggest problems guests had was finding the bed and breakfast. Even using GPS units many guests said that they got lost along the way. So, expect to take some extra time before you actually find your destination.v


Maybe You Should bring the Kitchen Sink

All guests agreed that the lack of complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms was disappointing. Many guests also said that the towels provided in the bathrooms didn't seem to be useful for drying anything. So, you should definitely bring your own toiletries if you stay there.


Try to stay Clean

Guests who stayed at the Purple Heather for more than one night were disappointed that there are no laundry facilities or related services offered. Several guests said that, although they could wash their clothes themselves in the bathroom, there was no convenient method or place to dry them
