My wife and I found this Inn something of a disappointment. We routinely pay a bit more for a B & B in preference to a hotel because the B & B offers opportunities for social contact with the owner and the other guests. This dimension is more or less absent from the Ravine. It is not so much a normal B & B but a cottage alongside a busy high end restaurant. Arrangements, eg, checking in, are completed with the restaurant staff who, although courteous and efficient, are preoccupied with the operation of the restaurant with no time to socialize with travelers. There were no other guests at the time of our visit and, as far as we could tell, there could not be as there seems to be only one rental unit. There was none of the normal travel information available on the Oxford area. The main room of the cottage is comfortable but the bathroom is very small, old fashioned and, therefore, impossible to keep very clean. To balance the picture I must add that we had an excellent meal in the restaurant and the young people on staff are first-rate.
