The location is excellent and the accommodations are very comfortable. Value for the money is very good. The rooms had individual climate control regardless of season. I was in the room with bathroom down the hall, and the bathroom was almost as large as the bedroom. The bedroom had a table for sitting and a chair for relaxing.
It's best not to think of this as a B&B in the traditional sense. There is no common space, so you probably won't meet your fellow travelers. And the hosts -- either Susanna or her assistants -- will meet you in the morning to bring you breakfast, which consists of coffee/tea, juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, cornetto (croissant with apricot jam inside), and a few other simple baked goods. Personally I like having a little protein like cheese, but the yogurt helped. But you won't see them again in the afternoon or evening, so get all your questions answered when you arrive or in the morning.
A quick note about laundry: they provide free laundry, which is a great plus, but they dry it by hanging it out on a line out of one of the bedroom windows, so unless you pick that bedroom they can only get to the line mid-day the next day. So assume that laundry dropped off in the morning won't be back until afternoon the next day. Also, you might ask them to use a little less detergent, since it was very heavily scented.
FYI you can hear people outside at the local restaurant/bar until around 11PM, if memory serves. You might want earplugs, but it wasn't too bad.
