I debated between 4 and 5 circles for my rating. When I realized I had a hard time coming up with anything negative to say, I decided it was more a 5 than a 4. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I asked for a first floor room because of my back and having to carry a laptop and books to work every day. The only room they had available on the first floor was off of the kitchen at the back of the house. They apologized multiple times about the location and explained that they would be very quiet in the mornings. I was never bothered by noise. I also had my own door directly to the outside. They said to feel free to use it during the day, but it would be safer to come in the front door at night, so that was what I did.
Breakfast is normally served starting at 8am. I needed to be leaving for work by 8, so when I informed them I wouldn't be there for breakfast, they said they would have breakfast out early for me and to plan on stopping by. They had eggs that you could boil, danish or donuts, yogurt, cereal, and more each morning.
They let me borrow an umbrella, they gave me directions, and made me feel right at home. This is my first stay at a B&B and it was a good experience. Faye (one of the staff) even offered to mail my postcards for me because it was pouring down rain on my last morning and I didn't want to go to the airport wet.
The only minor negatives were some ants in the bathroom the first day (the people I was working with said ants are just part of living in Bermuda) which I never mentioned, but were gone the next day. And the fact that my air conditioner was turned off each day and the windows opened while I was at work. I talked to another person staying there and they did not do this on the second floor. Because I understand how expensive electricity is in Bermuda, I didn't complain. I'm sure that if I had, they would have left the A/C on, but this seemed wasteful since I was gone to work all day and the room cooled off fairly quickly when I got back and turned it back on.
