Let me tell you about my stay at the Dauphinee inn.
We arrived tired from our long journey and entered the front door. Not a soul to be found. We shouted for a while but nothing. Eventually someone came up and rudely told us we had to go to the restaurant to check in. We were pointed to a hand scribbled sign on the side of the building. Downstairs at the restaurant we found less help. Staff were incredibly rude and snarky, didn't know where reservations were written down (not sure how this is possible). The paperwork I was told to fill out ( after a ten minute search for a pen), was full of information I'd already given and would not have been necessary with an ounce of organization.
We were finally led to our room. The room smelled of dampness. Our one window was covered in mould so bad we could barely see out. The other window in our room was directly onto the "bar" deck and thus we had people sitting in front of our window. The shutters on the window were covered in mould (which were on the inside of the room). We also had the pleasure of live music blaring directly into our room. The bathroom sink was covered in purple stuff ( possibly mould?).
I've stayed in bed and breakfasts all around the world and have never been treated so poorly, with such little respect and also paid so much. They think Just because they have a prime location they can forego basic customer care.
Do not stay here, B and B choice in hubbards is small, but get a cabin instead, trust me. I saw these reviews before I went and thought, how bad could it be? These are people who just aren't used to B and Bs. No, just don't stay here.
