“New, super clean and a nice breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2007

Stayed at the Driftwood for one night in late June 2007. The place is immaculate and the shower very welcoming in the morning. With only three rooms all on the second floor, it's "intimate" and would be super if you're travelling with a small group and can book all three rooms. (One room has a double bed, two rooms have king beds.) About a 10 minute walk along a two lane main road to town (with lit sidewalks), it's close enough, but far enough away for some quiet. Peter (the husband owner) is polite and cooks up a breakfast to order. Breakfast starts off with a "help yourself" yogurt, juice, cereals, fruits, followed by a cook-to-order breakfast.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2007

We booked this bed and breakfast based on the review from trip advisor, we initially booked 1 night but stopped on for 3. The welcome on our arrival and our room was above expectations. The little small extras were appreciated, mignonne gave good directions/suggestions for our day, and our breakfast was excellent fresh and presented well. Peters laid back approach and his attention to our needs were very much appreciated. Overall a very relaxed stay and we will be passing again.
