My wife and I recently stayed at Solglimt for two nights for a special occasion. We had seen the great reviews on tripadvisor and were glad that they still had an opening when all other top reviewed B&B's in Duluth were full a couple weeks prior to our stay.
Our room, the Harborview suite, was very nice. It had plenty of space, a fireplace, whirlpool tub, nice seating area, and a TV with DVD player. Our only complaints about the room were minor--as the name would indicate, the view isn't the desired one--of Superior. Additionally, we were somewhat disappointed by the quality of the older television and the fact that the DVD remote didn't work, even after having the batteries replaced. This made watching the TV series on DVD that we brought with impossible, without the options needed on the remote.
The breakfasts were delicious and filling. They were three courses, a bread/scone of some sort, a fruit dish, and an entree (pancakes one day and an eggs benedict the other, I believe). We were exceedingly pleased with these.
Another nice touch was the snacks/treats that were available at all times during our stay, including soda, cashews, trail mix, fresh baked brownies/bars, etc. We really appreciated this.
Finally, we found the owners to be very friendly and hospitable. We are somewhat hesitant B&B guests, often preferring the anonymity of hotels. However, a really positive B&B experience such as this one will make us reconsider this hesitation in the future.
