Room: Very beautiful, elegant inn. We stayed in the Barbados Room, which is on the level below the main floor. It still had windows and our own little outdoor sitting area that looked out on the garden and parking lot. We were a little worried about the noise of people walking around the kitchen, dining room and sitting room in the mornings, since they would be walking on top of us, but it was pretty quiet. We enjoyed the luxury bath robes, making gourmet coffee in the morning and the big jacuzzi tub. The bed was also very comfortable and the room very clean.
Service: more like a hotel in that it lacked the charm of a more personalized B&B. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, but some seemed to lack the knowledge to recommend activities and restaurants. The were happy to make any arrangements that you could want, but I felt like they didn't have personal experience with the things they recommended.
Location: Very convenient location to walk to all the historic houses, restaurants and galleries. We walked to dinner every night and enjoyed the park near the water. It is a short 20 - 30 min drive to many plantations.
Breakfast: You get a menu each more with the special of the day (bread pudding, eggs benedict..ect.) or you can choose toast, fruit or a yogurt parfait. The food was just ok. We ended up picking the yogurt a couple times because the main dish was a little disappointing. For the price you pay I would have expected more. A couple times by the time we went upstairs for breakfast, the coffee was all out and we had to wait a good 15 min before they brewed more.
