Mrs. Bottomley was the keeper of the Oasis Guesthouse in Bumby. According to John, she was very ill-suited to be a hostess because of her temperate manner. She appeared to be very annoyed when Zaregus was tapping the pipes and came up to complain about them. Despite John's apologies, she insisted that she'd rather them stop altogether than hear the noise. She was also shown to be very oblivious cook as she burnt her sausages while talking to them.
