I can't really say much more than has already been said about The Blue Beetroot. MrReaves and I did an overnighter to Poland for the purpose of buying pottery. We checked out this place before we left, but we didn't make reservations. We used TomTom to get us there, and what a great little find! One thing about TomTom in particular: You must enter Boleslawiec Gmina as your city, or you'll never find the strasse listed.
Be aware--It's not located in town or within walking distance of any of the pottery places, but this didn't matter to us. It was quiet there, beautifully restored and an exceptional value. The owners were so pleasant, giving us a printed excel spreadsheet with local pottery factories, glass blowing studios (don't miss that!) and other local things like gas station information. They also provide a wonderful in-room binder filled with local attractions and outings such as mushrooming and sleigh rides that can be coordinated through the inn.
They gave us the option of being charged in dollars, Euro or zloty, which is completely unheard of in Europe.
The hospitality that everyone displayed was some of the best that we've encountered. The food in the restaurant was most excellent, both for supper and for breakfast. While enjoying dinner, we got a chance to chat with other guests there--guests who we ran into several times over while out shopping for pottery the next morning.
Our room was large but cozy with a great big bathroom with separate shower and tub. The bed was not two twins pushed together, but one large mattress (again, unheard of in a lot of places) with bathrobes for each guest and tea service in the room. Brits rejoice!
All in all, I am going to recommend this lovely place to all of my friends who will be venturing to Boleslawiec to buy pottery before they PCS. I hope that MrReaves and I can make it back there one day soon and use it as a home base for exploring more of Poland.
