After a hectic Mardi Gras weekend, this was a perfect place to unwind before continuing our vacation. The B&B is lovely, welcoming, quiet and relaxing. It is located conveniently for the ferry at the top of Canal Street and a short walk from the terminal at Algiers Port (free if a foot passenger). Look for the English pub on the corner and walk down a short block.
A welcoming pot of English tea upon arrival and then a tour of the house and garden. We had the room off the kitchen which has an en suite bathroom. That evening we went up to the English pub whereupon Kevin, who says he does not play darts, thrashed us! We will be back for a re-match!!
The continental breakfast was so filling and generous. Kevin and Wendy are wonderful hosts and very helpful and knowledgable about the local area.
Thank you Kevin, Wendy and Boudin The Wonder Dog who made our stay so welcoming and we will definitely be back and we highly recommend their B&B.
