Click on the "Write a Review" link below (in the footer at the very bottom of the page) and search under "hotels". When it says it can't find it, there is also a link to add it. Fill in the information; you will get an email once it has been added and then you will be able to review it.

Someone in Uxbridge, staying in a B&B half an hour away ... how interesting.

Yes, it is very close to me, and it is my friends place. I have not stayed the night since it became a B & B but the transformation is astounding!

How can you review a place if you haven't stayed there? That is what reviews are for ... not for publicising your friend's B&B.

Wendy, you might want to read the review guidelines since you might not be doing your friend any favours. You have to have had an experience with the hotel (or B&B in this case) as a customer, even if only to the extent of dealing with them while make a reservation. The TA reviews can be a wonderful help for a B&B but any hint of trying to "game the system" will work against them. Properties with reviews that are considered fraudulent (written by friends, family etc.) can lead to a red-letter warning on their TripAdvisor listing page. Even if that doesn't happen, as illustrated by phpr, some people are going to pick up on the fact that you likely have other motives for the review, since your location is so close. Personally, when I am considering where to stay, if there are too many one-post wonder reviews, or others that raise suspicion, I usually just rule that property out entirely.

Thank you so much, that explains the other persons response. I did not know I was not to do that so I will review the guidelines as I would not want to cause any harm to her or do anything fraudulent. I will leave it to her lovely guests to rate it!

She can also add her property here on TA - the basic listings are free or she can pay for a listing if she wants to have contact information included in the listing. (The freebies don't include phone, email or website links.) As a registered owner, she would have access to the Owner's Forum, as well as to various tools TA has available to encourage guests to post reviews.
