“I would rate Angel's Rest as a Minus 10 Star B & B”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2007

Never, ever, ever visit this B & B. I am still seething about having thrown away hard-earned dollars. We picked this B & B because the pictures provided an air of elegance. Not so!! Very worn out and needs a total cleansing. We were quoted $250.00 per night but the lady would give us a bargain at $199.00 with a deluxe continental breakfast. Would you believe she left white mini sugar donuts, and day-old muffins, fruit, juice in the bar fridge. From when we drove under an arbour at the sidewalk down to the house we knew we had made a mistake. Disrepair everywhere. We wanted to walk in the backyard to view the river and there was a "private property" sign. Our first meeting with Marianne was in the driveway. I told her I was looking forward to having a chat. She held up her hand and said "oh, sorry, I am too busy this weekend to visit with you!" We asked for restaurant suggestions and how to get to the market and her response was "I do not know" It gets worse.... we arrived home after dinner to be met by burned out lightbulbs - my husband turned the car lights on the house so that I could get up the stairs and find the key hole to get indoors. We found a post-it note secured by a thumb tack on the outside door frame. "Hope you enjoyed your stay and be sure to come back" The only positive feature was that it was clean. We were so disappointed. We left early the next morning and had breakfast at a local restaurant. I tell everyone about our experience.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We purchased this property in December 2005 and I understand that you visited our property in April 2006. We took your critical remarks very seriously because we care a great deal about the comfort of our guests and we wish everyone to have a memorable stay at our retreat. As new owners of a B&B, we obviously had a lot to learn but we are happy with our progress and we continually strive to improve the experience of our guests. We apologize that the property was under construction when you visited us but we are happy to inform you that we have spent the past five years upgrading our property to better serve our beloved guests. We invite you to visit our website to see the improvements and we would welcome the opportunity to see you again.

Thank you and have a great day!
