The sum of ALL comments here quite fairly represents this B&B. Unfortunately, I just focused on the positive ones when I was booking the room.
Arrival: no one there
Arrival II: door open, no one answered our calls. But the owner was in one of the guest rooms. We introduced ourselves and got ignored. No welcome, nothing. After re-introducing us again, we just got informed we need to wait. No "Hello" or "Welcome" or even "Sorry, but I am not yet finished".
Finally, we got our room. It got cleaned, but just very casually. For example, the sink got cleaned but the area behind the tap has been spared since several guest. I spare my comments about the toilet.
The beds itself are good, the room is small but nicely furnished. Just the noise insulation is very poor, you hear everything being talked in the living room (and vice versa).
The breakfast was good, but you need to take it at 8 AM. And the owner does not hesitate to show you that she hasn't slept well.
In summary, the B&B itself and the garden are nice. Especially the bathroom could have been cleaned with more efficiency (there is a 25 USD extra fee for cleaning). But an absolute No-Go and Never-Returner is the atmosphere of being not welcome there. I had the impression the owner has to rent out the rooms out of financial reasons, but she really doesn't like to have strangers in here home. Very sad if you as guest have chosen a B&B because you did not want a "neutral" hotel.
