Lets me start off by saying that some residents in rooms closer to the road were experiencing noise and interrupted sleep. If you are a light sleeper I suggest you talk to the staff about a low noise room at the back at the time of booking. I certainly don't recall any noise in my room.
This is a old house from the 1880s its charming and largely authentic, including the original (non functional) gas lighting. As it is a 1880s house, it is a little rough around the edges and best avoided if you are looking for ultra modern accommodation.
Old fashioned charm describes both the house and the hosts. The owner Don, is a gentleman in every respect and was a wealth of information and suggested some truly excellent places to eat.
The Breakfasts provided were far above the standard I expected of a B & B, on my last morning the chef Eric was in and the breakfast was truly outstanding and clearly a lot of effort had gone into it including the sourcing of ingredients.
The final thing I would like to point out was the location of this B & B. The neighbourhood is safe and delightful, with an abundance of good restaurants and stores like whole foods. Its a leafy neighbourhood with wide streets and lots of charmingly restored old fashioned housing. The major attractions are a short distance away. Don suggested the bus, but I found a vacant taxi within moments of leaving the front door each time and chose that option.
