Mostly very nice, with a couple of concerns
Posted Apr 20, 2015
This is a very pretty house, nicely decorated to suit the tastes of many who use B&Bs. The room was well appointed and the breakfast was very nice; the owners were friendly. However, I have two concerns. The first is that I wasn't given any choice as to the timing of breakfast. I'm not a very regular B&B user, so perhaps my experience is unusual, but whenever I have stayed at a B&B I've been offered a range. Here I was simply told: "Breakfast is at 8:30". When I hesitated the owner did ask if that was okay -- but by that point I didn't feel comfortable to make a special request. The second thing, and to me the bigger issue, is that guests are not given a key either to the house (the owners never lock the door) or to the room -- the latter has a chain-lock, so you can lock the door when you're inside, but you can't lock it when you go out. Perhaps this is a non-issue in the location, but the owners can't guarantee the honesty of their guests, and I would have felt more comfortable to leave my computer, camera etc in the room if I'd been able to lock it. For this reason I won't be able to stay at this particular B&B again.
