We were really looking forward to this "stateside" B & B having spent time in many British B & B's. There is one private bath and the other 3-4 rooms share a bath. We requested the private bath and the individual who booked it, (a strong British accent) was very accommodating.
We arrived to find that the room was sold....a huge disappointment ,as this was the primary requirement. Our schedule was too busy to look for another hotel so we accepted. There are some expectations to staying at a B & B . We did not find that this establishment met them. They are the following:
1. It was very warm at night. We should have been told the air turns on in the AM and off at night. No fans were provided.
2. The bathroon had no curtain, rooms were visible in the next building.
3. A B & B means bed and breakfast , not "you're on your own in the morning". There was no one to serve food, you found your own food in a refrigerator that needing cleaning, the coffee pot was broken, the stove didn't work properly and there was no kitchen table , so one stood to eat.
We and another couple were stunned to be standing there trying to eat.
4. They told us parking was in the back or out front. We parked about a quarter of a mile away , that evening, because the yard gate was locked and the street parking was filled with locals. Better to be told honestly and I would have brought sneakers instead of heels.
We decided all this was not part of the plan. We checked out with a note(having paid the evening before) because there was no one there to say good bye to........really!
There is much to see in this city though we were visiting family. The hotel or B & B should be the place for R & R.
