Do not be deceived by the first floor of this hotel, which is very nice. Stayed with friends in two separate rooms. Both rooms plagued by poor plumbing and electrical. Furnishings inconsistent with the rest of the hotel - furnishings in some rooms nicer than others. Room on the third floor I stayed worn out, tired furnishings, wobbly side tables, lamps that did not work, poor tv reception, old mattress with dead springs, and whole room smelled funny. Shutters that banged up against the house kept me awake. Slow drains in toilets sinks and showers in both rooms (toilets would not flush, shower pan and sinks all filled up to the top with dirty water while washing). In one of the bathrooms, drain cover was not affixed to the shower floor and moved all around the shower pan with water not going down drain and overflowing over the shower pan and onto the bathroom floor. Flickering bathroom ceiling light kept turning itself off repeatedly. This b&b is close to town but is in need of a capital improvement plan in our opinion. My friends and I were not comfortable in the rooms at all and tried to stay out and only come back to sleep. Ok to stay if there are no other alternatives but we will not be back.
