I too was a little concerned about a couple of the reviews, but we had a fantastic B&B experience. The hospitality and breakfast are not over rated. They are as good as you'll encounter worldwide. As the entertaining proprietor admitted, it does need a big investment to update some of the facilities but that is also part of its charm. We had a beautifully decorated room. The reception area and dining area are also delightful. The location is also good for museums and a pleasant walk to Temple Bar.
Don't go if you want a formulaic modern chain hotel experience, but if you enjoy getting to know local people who rightfully take pride in their unique style of hospitality then give it a go. There will be many repeat visitors there too.
