Arrived at Elim Lodge for a short stay in June (3 days) and was pleasantly surprised by the size of our room. However, that is where comfort ends. We had no car for transport so if we were not out walking or eating we were trapped (3 of us) in our room. I suppose it's my fault for not doing enough investigation in advance; I would have thought there would be "common room" in which we could sit when we were not in our rooms sleeping. Breakfast room was locked if it was not breakfast time. not that I would be comfortable "lounging" in there... Perhaps this is not the norm in the area? It is in the US. While I found the owners helpful before we arrived, they were quite scarce during our stay and I found Linda quite brusque and hurried most if the time. Not what I expected in B&B people at all. Roger was ok and helped us upstairs with our luggage. I just expected B&B people to be a little more friendly and would have liked someplace to lounge other than in our room. Would not go back.
