The room was beautiful - newly refurbished with a tropical feel, a netted, 4-poster bed, fulll kitchen and small table with two chairs. The location was perfect. There was a extra added touch in the bathroom for women - a packet of make-up removal and a dark face cloth so the white towels didn't get stained.
Duval Gardens just missed the mark as a B&B. We have been to many B&Bs so we do have a comparison basis. We were not given a tour upon arrival nor were we informed of anything - like when & where breakfast was. We had to ask questions. Although the room was beautiful there were little things that became annoying: only one towel rack in the bathroom and not even a hook to hang a wet towel, your cosmetic bag, etc. The one switch in the bathroom worked both the light AND the noisy fan so you had to listen to the fan any time you were in the bathroom (which can be a while for women who are putting on make-up and fixing their hair). There were no hangers for pants. Although there was a mat outside the door, there was nothing inside the door and when it rained, the inside hardwood floor got wet and dirty from our shoes. We did wipe it up with paper towels but the floor did not get cleaned by housekeeping during our two night stay. The big disappointment was the breakfast. We expect something a little special at a B&B and their breakfast was what you get at a Days Inn or other inexpensive hotel: two containers of cold cereal, a basket of hard boiled eggs, bagels, store bought pastry and a bowl of fruit. It just wasn't a B&B experience
