We stayed for 4 nights in the Barbara Howard Suite -- our first trip to Ashland. The hotel is perfectly situated to walk everywhere in downtown Ashland including the theatre which we enjoyed on Friday night. Our room was nice although not exactly what I was expecting - the fireplace and sitting room were separated from the bedroom, the website made it appear they were all together. We were also on the very top floor of the second building and getting in/out of the room involved climbing 3 flights of very steep stairs. (ok for us but maybe not for someone not so mobile) The Inn itself and the grounds are very pretty - especially enjoyed the rooms they use for breakfast as they overlook the garden. My favorite part of staying at the Inn was the food! The breakfasts were incredible --- 2 courses --- one sweet, the other savory. My hats off to the pastry chef -- some of the best breakfast goodies I've ever eaten. Also enjoyed the sweet treats left in our room nightly during turndown service. The staff overall was nice but no one seemed to really put themselves out on our behalf. One of the reasons we enjoy staying at B&Bs is for the personal service and interaction and that was missing here. It felt more like a regular hotel. Overall it was a good experience - but for the price, I expected a bit more.
