We absolutely loved our stay at Primrose. The Holland Room is huge with a separate sitting room which we used as a dressing area. Designated parked Was a real bonus as well. All of the communal areas are cosy and tasteful. We loved the wraparound porch with the rockers. Breakfast was really nice with a sweet or a savoury choice... More

They have a great new quiet a/c system in each room. Umbrellas. bottled water and sodas in a fridge, ice machine and great front porch with rockers.... More

This was our second stay at the Primrose and we couldn't have been happier. Cute rooms, amaaaazing breakfasts and afternoon snacks, lots of little extras like DVDs and audio tour guides to borrow, a beautiful porch to sit outside, your own numbered parking space, and walking distance to town! Room prices vary by size, so if it's a stretch for... More

Have you ever read the articles that tell you to sleep in your own guest room to make sure your guests have everything they need?? I think the owner of The Primrose Inn has spent several weekends "playing guest" because everywhere you turn, she has placed just the right touch to make your stay effortless and enjoyable.

We had a plumbing issue that required a repairman to come in and they gave us a card with an apology and cash to use for dimmer... More

From the amazing breakfasts, the yummy afternoon tea and homemade desserts, the rocking chairs on the front porch, the comfortable bedding, it was amazing.
