This B&B is located in a very nice location and across the street from the Governor's House. So if you like to stroll and see some excellent gardens, just walk across the street. It's open to the public and free. The accommodations at this B&B were very nice for us. We had a suite on the ground level with a separate access. It included a mini kitchen, a lounge area with a couch and chairs and a separate bedroom with a large king size bed. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi/ shower and it was a completely newly renovated bathroom. Over all the B&B was very nice. The breakfast was good, nothing special but more than adequate. And, they are very accommodating for special diets. The main part of the B&B is very old but very clean. I would say it is in need of updating but if you like old style you will be very happy. All the people at the B&B are very pleasant. They couldn't be nicer or more helpful. If you are interested in seeing attractions, I recommend speaking to them as they were about to provide discounted tickets for most everything.
I would highly recommend the outside and lower level room/suite. Our friends stayed in a room on the second floor, which was nice but much smaller.
PS: you are in for a very pleasant surprise with the sheets and pillow cases they use. They're exceptional. And, they also sell them. If it weren't for the weight issue with my luggage I might have purchased a set.
