“Not A patch on some US B&Bs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2008

We stayed at the BYI in October, must say a nice warm greeting by the owner and average rooms, maybe just a little twee with a bit too much chintz.

We had the English room which has a roll-top bath, and a balcony at the front which we had specifically chosen, however the bath had a dirty tide mark around it, yuck! and the balcony has seen better days. Overall the room was comfortable, but you just know when things are not quite right.

The breakfast, well that was downright awful, the owners no longer live there, have a number of B&Bs in Cedar City and consequently miss out on the little detail that make it a good experience. Come 8.30am there must have been at least 20 people all waiting for food (they had come from the other B&B's for food as well). To top it all the owners had mixed up their start time for food, the husband stood there blaming his wife and the breakfast ended up being stew from the previous night. There were not enough seats for the influx of people at that time.

Overall we have stayed in some fantastic American B&Bs that are run with the personal touch, this unfortunately is not one of them, so therefore we are unable to recommend the Big Yellow Inn to anyone.

Our first stay was for pleasure. We ended up meeting a new business opportunity during breakfast. The hosts were very accommodating since we are vegetarian. The room was very nicely decorated and the rest of the house was very ornate - a huge library and grand staircases. Our next visit was for business and although we didn't get to stay as long it was again very enjoyable. We stayed in the Hunter room the first time and Blue Haven the second. Hope to visit again soon and try all the rooms.

We loved everything about this charming inn. The owner/managers are a lovely couple who take innkeeping seriously. All the rooms are lovely. We found it by accident while stopping at the Utah information center. It was a treasure. Wish there were more like this. The prices are moderate and the value top notch.

What a comfortable bed I enjoyed at the Big Yellow Inn. (And I know beds - I manage the Washington School Inn in Park City, UT.) The building was redone about 5 years ago so they designed all the rooms with becoming an Inn in mind. Their furnishings fit their 'Georgian Revival' theme very well with period furnishings, rich-colored carpets and lots of things on the shelves & mantles to catch your interest. And the light fixture in the Victorian Room as well as the gas fireplace were beautiful and easy to use.

I happened to be in Cedar City for a tourism conference being held at SUU. From the BYI, I could walk easily to my meetings (@2 blocks). It must be a joy to stay there during the Shakespeare Festival. And the town was incredibly clean - not a piece of trash anywhere.

I enjoyed a delicous breakfast, Peach French Toast Souffle, while I sat out on the porch and was warmed by the morning sun.

We booked the Big Yellow Inn on the Internet due to the fact I could not find an hotel I liked - this was the first holiday in the USA that we have used Bed & Breakfast and not large hotels. We stayed on the 23rd May 2004 ( I wished we could have stayed longer). This is the most amazing place I have ever stayed in. The website is just amazing and so is the property. We booked the Victorian Room which was fantastic, but ended up staying in the Gable Suite which was very large and just wonderful. I peeped in all the themed rooms and they were all beautiful and extremely well done. Family business - just lovely. Would recommend to everybody.
