Primrose Inn is a relatively large establishment compared to the other Inns and B&Bs we have used on this tour (~16 rooms).
On arrival we had a very friendly welcome and a tour of the facilities. We had been notified in advance that each room had allocated parking and where our space was, so we knew exactly where to go and our space gave easy access to get our baggage into the room. As is usual in Inns and B&Bs, there was 24 hour access to tea, coffee, etc - on our arrival day we had just missed "afternoon tea" when cookies, cakes, etc., are available - but there were still leftover cookies which made a fine desert later in the evening!
We got good advice on local eateries, and settled on the Side Street Cafe (about 5 mins walk away) where we were so well served that we went back the following day!
Like most visitors to Bar Harbor, we had gone primarily to visit Acadia National Park - which is fabulous. OK, we were there in the fall, and the weather was superb, which meant we were spoilt - but we have certainly put it on our "places to go back to" list! We didn't do sunrise on Cadillac Mountain (too crowded, and sunrise from the beach was spectacular anyway) - our highlight was driving out into the park after dark and finding a spectacularly dark sky to see the Milky Way (and a bonus of a number of shooting stars) - magical!!
Breakfast in the Primrose is more than adequate - two dishes each day to chose from, plus fruit, cakes, etc.
Overall - a fine place to stay.
