We stayed at the Dewey House for the second leg of our honey moon after the Sandals resort in the Bahamas, and enjoyed it immensly! We went in unseasonably hot weather so my only complaint was the pool situation. I crossed the street to the other pool on property, adults only, but it was surrounded by a wall so VERY hot on the pool deck for sunbathing/reading... had to leave after only about 20 minutes... dipping in the pool every few minutes just wasnt wnough.Nice touch though... a server came around for drink order and even brought popcicles! The main pool was VERY crowded and small and lots of kids playing and rough housing. I ended up going out on the pier where it was quiet and there was even a decent breeze.
The room itself was fantastic! Great bed and beautifully decorated! The bathroom was small, but that was OK for a B&B, and expected since our room was on a funny shaped corner. Minor problem was the window coverings... we were right on the walkway, so we had to be careful coming out of bathroom since bathroom door faced our windows and you could see in:)
Our favorite part about this hotel was the service! We were greeted with big smiles by everyone, and the innkeeper quickly introduced herself as we were wondering around, and explained how the breakfast and tea times worked, etc. Very helpful. It was great having a computer in the "lobby" area, and the continental breakfast was GREAT!!! Surpassed my expectations. Tea time was nice too, tograb a sweet bite and some cheese and crackers on the patio before heading out for dinner/evening advantures. When we arrived there was a bottle of champagne (honeymoon) and a hand written welcome note from hotel staff! We even got a handwritten Christmas note! The hotel is walking distance from the touristy part of town, but it was nice to be a little farther from the bars, etc. We found the best way to get around was to rent a bike... only $15 for 24 hours, so we could ride to bars at night and still have the whole day to explore with the bikes, for way cheaper than getting cabs or pedi-cabs. Overall, would definately recommend!
Shoot for a second floor to avoid foot traffic, and ocean front would be preferable.
