This was our first stay at a b&b and it was as much as a surprise as it was a dissapointment.
Overall we think it was a positive experience. Roger is a very friendly and helpfull proprietor, the rippon kinsella house is a lovely house with loads of character. It has a great garden and its nice to sit on the porch and relax. We stayed at the Maid's room. The maid's room is a comfortable room with a spacious bathroom and seperate sitting area in the hall. The maid's room did have some drawbacks that should be fixed. The bed was really creaky and loud and the windows didn't have any real curtains, so you will be awake when the sun is shining,
As for the service. That could have been better. At times we couldnt find the proprietor anywhere on the property and there was no easy way of contacting him other then ringing the front doorbell. This is something they should fix.
But these were all minor inconveniences. Overall we had a pleasant stay and i enjoyed our stay at the Rippon Kinsella house.
That's why i give this B&B a positive recommendation and hoping they will address the issues of the creaking bed, no curtains and find a better way of getting in touch with the proprietor.
