We have just returned from a 2 night stay having travelled from the UK.
The rooms were small, clean and presentable.
It would have been nice to have a choice of breakfast due to varying diets of our party of 4. We mentioned this to the owner, who said she had asked if anyone had allergies, but this was not true. She is very frugal, one tea bag in a large tea pot, if you refuse orange juice on the first day you will not be offered it on the second day.
I borrowed two pens which I returned, and found her counting them afterwards.
To be honest, this is the weirdest B&B we have ever stayed in. The owner will dicate to you without reservation, so be prepared to have the hairs on the back of your neck bristle!!!
PS. Her name is Maria, on your own head if you call her Marie. She is sooooo rude.
