Use extreme caution!
We never actually stayed in this B&B as we walked out when we tried to check in. We had booked to stay in the Taramisu suite- doing our due dilligence on the internet and contacting the owner personally , we tried to ensure the accomodations met our needs.
We arrived with high hopes of a pleasant stay. Things started to go wrong quickly. Driving though the neighbourhood approaching the B&B things went from pleasant to questionable, to borderline seedy. We kept our hopes up as we proceeded to the specific address.
When we enter the home Margaret greets us and says that she's moved us to the Romantic room- despite specificaly wanting and booking and being confirmed a 1 bedroom with a kitchen because we were travelling with a toddler. She had given our room to someone else and tried to sell us that having a toddler in the "romantic" room would, with it's big bed would be pleasant for us. She offered to let us use her fridge for bottles...
When we questioned her about the change it turned out that she had known about 10 days in advance that there might be a problem, and knew for sure the previous morning. However, she failed to contact us, discuss the room change... the room available did not serve or meet our needs, so we walked out and had to find new accomodations.
She offered us tea, or to call the local hotels to help us find a room- but never really acknowledged that for us to find a 1 bedroom hotel room on very short notice resulted in us paying a very high premium. Essentially, the accomodation that we found, we could have had for 60 dollars a night cheaper if we had booked on-line while doing our search a few weeks earlier.
