I usually have reservations (no pun intended) about Bed & Breakfasts. I like to come and go as I please without feeling I need to socialize with people I don't know or that I may potentially be waking somone up if I stroll in late from a litte "wine tasting" around the area I'm visiting, so needless to say, when my boyfriend booked this room for our stay (under the impression we could use our BednBreakfast.com gift cards) I was a little apprehensive.
First of all, the location is fantastic for a Bed & Breakfast, directly next to the Loews hotel (there's a through-road between them) this location is directly atop the city entrance on Grand Allee. Everything is walkable. If you're coming with a car, as we did, a parking space is included in your stay cost. The owners don't appear to live on premises, so you don't have that uneasy feeling of being "watched" the whole time. Not that we did anything sketchy, but to recount what I eluded to earlier, it's nicer (for some of us) when your on vacation to feel independent and not chaperoned. However, do be mindful that this is a very intimate setting, like staying in someone's "HOME", so you should still be mindful of other guests staying there (in otherwords, watch your noise factor). The gentleman that met us when we checked in (believe his name is Jean-Phillipe) was nice-enough (no overly chatty personality) and probably around our age (30's?). Very helpful, since they were unable to accomodate us in one room through our 3 night stay, they set us up in the nicer rooms (2 nights in 1 room, 1 night in another, both with bathrooms en-suite) when they incurred a cancelation.
The building is sort of like a townhouse manor, has 3 floors, the 2nd and 3rd being the entranceways and rooms (you can enter directly to your floor from one of the two entrance ways) and the breakfast room and internet are on the base/lower level floor.
This is an older building, so don't expect too much flair. However, if you are looking for charm, antiquity, character and creature comforts, you'll find them here. Free internet is provided, breakfast (of course, and it's not at a round table!), if you're a smoker you can smoke out on one of the terraces in the back, and parking is included.
All in all a lovely stay, for my first B&B experience, it was a pleasant surprise
