Booked this b&b as we were attending a wedding in a near by hotel that was fully booked.
The bedroom was fantastic, though we got a double instead of the twin asked, but the bed was huge.
When we arrived the drive way was a little full with cars, but luckly i drive a mini so squeezed in...just!. On arrivel Brian asked us to take our shoes off and sit in the living room...we felt like naughty children. We were asked what time we would like breakfast and then firmly reminded that he needed us out of the room BEFORE 10am as he needed to go out... But Brian, for being like a strict headmaster, seems to have good intentions.
We were shown our room and told not to ruin the very expensive Thai silk on the bed....(who you kidding 5 bhts in Thailand Brian, we have all been).The room was was right by the "office". So while we tried to settle in we were conscious that Brian was right outside the door..even listening.
This was confirmed, when he must have over heard us trying to order a cab to take us to the other hotel......Let me tell you this is near impossible. Brian kindly offered to take us there. This was very nice of him as we knew he had other plans.
Breakfast was cooked by Brian and was great, we did have to share the table with one other lone guest.
All in all, a nice stay for the price we paid.
