Our stay was a unique step back into history, hearing about the home's previous owners and how the home was part of the boarding school and college life of the last century. Chatting with other guests at breakfast was special. The bed was very comfortable, which I need due to a sensitive shoulder.
Some suggestions for the hosts to address: (1.) providing locks & keys for rooms and front door, which could be an insurance issue if a guest's safety has been compromised, this would protect the owners from possible legal issues; (2.) Improve ambiance of the room we were in with night tables & lamp. Lamps on the wall are hard on the eyes for reading. I realize a step back in history is one thing but I do miss TV. (3.) The tub is nice to look at but if a senior has mobility issues, this would not be something one should not use without assistance.
It was good to learn that WiFi was available but had to ask for the p/w key. I didn't have an issue with the two German Shepherds but others may. We were surprised to learn that cash was required, we were required to give credit card details to reserve this stay. Finding a bank machine during our walk was a challenge.
Stefan provides a breakfast experience that would match any fancy hotel. Thanks Andrea for your part in this experience.
