We had the smallest room (The Orange Belt), which Ed warned us for. It was still good though, since the common areas are excellent to hang out. The bed is good and you're very close to the harbour. Ed is a great host who whips up an amazing breakfast: delicious all 4 times, all different. Definitely worth going here!

We were staying in the smallest room, still we had enough space. The Dicken's House is approx. 15 Minutes walk away from city center, if that's still to much there's also a tourist-transport leaving every 15 Minutes. Breakfirst was delicious, and aditionally there was coffee / home-made cookies available, yuummmm!! Additionally, Ed really knows what to do / to see.

Best B & B ever. Delicious gourmet type breakfast with fresh fruit, yummy coffee, and unbeatable entree; different each day of our 3-day stay. Mr. Caldwell is a very friendly informative host, and caters to individual dietary needs. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all amenities one could desire. Looking forward to a return when possible.

This was our 2nd stay at The Dickens House B&B. Ed provides comfortable rooms and common areas and truly great breakfasts such as the french toast and eggs tempura. As in our previous stay we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and fellow guests. Its location is ideal as we were able to walk to the beach and pier, as well as... More

I spent 5 nights at the Dickens House B&B after attending a business conference the week prior. The experience was terrific, and I can't wait to return! While I stayed in one of the smaller rooms at this B&B, it was amply furnished with just the right amount and style of furniture. The bed was terrific, A+++ quality, and the... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Dickens House one night and had a wonderful experience. Our host/owner Ed was most gracious and accommodating. His attention to detail in every phase of our stay exceeded our expectations from the immaculate/charming premises both inside and out through the wonderful breakfast he prepared. Making guests happy is Ed's main objective not to... More

We spent 4 nights at the B&B in the Cottage Suite. The room is huge with a beautiful enclosed extra room. The bathroom is also huge with lots of counter space which is normally lacking. There is a great attention to detail in the rooms and the house overall. The house has been lovingly restored to its original glory. We... More

We stayed for 2 nights (only) and loved the place! Ed Caldwell is a great host. He loves what he is doing and is interested in his guests and this shows in everything he does. The house is lovingly renovated and our little suite was perfect. The attention to detail made our room perfect. Hooks on walls, light switches, lights... More
