The worst B&B I have stayed in.
Not sure how this gets 4.5 stars on FOBBA as I would give it a 3 at the most and the prices are ridiculous for what you get. I noted previous reviews but thought we would give it a shot.
The B&B is on a busy street on the main drag of Orangeville, which is fine. There are two buildings with parking behind that is not self apparent. The entrance is cluttered with an overgrown garden as you enter there is nothing special. It looks like an old house.
It is advertised as central air but we felt like goldilocks. One room was too hot, the other room was too cold and the third room had a noisy air conditioner that buzzed on and off all night. The not room was awful, stifling hot with no air movement and to boot all the windows are nailed shut. When this was mentioned to the proprietor she got defensive and said “ well is an old house and there is nothing we can do, if there is too much sun that day it gets too hot.
The rooms were clean but lacked charm. The air conditioner room had an old tv sitting on a table below the bed level which made me wonder why? The bed was terribly uncomfortable and both our backs were out of whack the next day.
There were two porches with very little airflow and the front porch has moldy canvas drapes to block the view of the neighbor and successfully restricted any airflow.
Now for breakfast. Started with orange juice and not so hot coffee. A very nice tiny fruit cup with an English cream type mixture. Then came the most boring scrambled eggs, one piece of toast, two skinny sausage links, home fries and a slice of tomato. Something you would get at a greasy spoon for $4.99 including coffee. Too boot we had one person who is allergic to eggs and she had lovely toast and home fries as no option was offered.
Lastly the proprietor, during breakfast we did not see here once. One the phone she sells how lovely it is and all her awards but I am not sure who voted for these. Lastly her policy is to charge your credit card in advance of stay. We were there one night so I am not sure if this applies to multiple nights. When asked why she said that she was too busy Sunday mornings to deal with it.
Overall I suggest in stead of wasting your money here if the nicer establishments are booked then stay at the local motel.
