    Call it a hotel, motel or an Inn but not a B&B. When checking in we were informed that breakfast was €10 per person extra. Will I go back there, I dont think so. I feel I was misled and couldn't cancel the reservation because it was non refundable. This also gives them an unfair advantage to other B&Bs where the breakfast is actually included in their price. This is the first B&B where I was asked to pay for my breakfast. It is a very place, but it is not sound proof. You can clearly hear other guests trying to unlock their door as if you were standing right next to them.
