We spent 3 nights in this B&B back in September and we both have mixed feelings about the place. It was a nice, clean room in a very convenient location, but we felt somewhat unwelcome. We did not see the owners once during our stay, and when on the last evening we knocked on the door a few times to say 'Hello' and pay for our stay, no one answered, even though there were voices clearly heard on the other side of the door (we put the money through the door in one of the envelopes provided). Another thing was the no-more-than-10-minutes-shower 'rule'. We can understand that some people might take long in the showers and waste a lot of water, but it was the first hotel/ b&b where we actually had to go to the bathroom with a timer making sure we do not spend longer than 10 minutes washing ourselves. Not sure if anyone ever checks it, but we tend to adhere to all terms & conditions so did not want to risk it.
To sum up, we would recommend the place to someone on the budget, as the place is definitely worth the money, but if you are looking for a bit of 'attention' and helpful tips from the hosts, you might want to look elsewhere as there is no guarantee you will get a chance to meet them.
We only give rooms and sleep quality 3 stars because of the fact that we could not help feeling unwelcome, which affected the enjoyment of our stay here. Taking that aside, it would have been a 4 star rating for both as it provided all a busy and active traveller needs - clean room and comfy bed.
