I can't believe that Burbridge Street B & B is operating as a bed and breakfast. When we arrived, we drove around the block twice because we couldn't believe the building we saw was the right place. Warped, unpainted wood boards, swaying stairs and porch, no sign letting you know this was the place. We had to carefully stop over the rotting planks in the porch while simultaneously avoiding the rusty nails sticking straight out of the banister. You think I'm kidding but I'm not!
Our room: clean, nice, very comfortable bed, decorations were okay. Exposed and overloaded electrical socket 3 feet away from the leaky bathroom shower is a fire waiting to happen. On our arrival, the owner's (previously undisclosed) cat was on our bed and we were told, "Oh, she'll be in there all the time unless you close the door." A little warning would have been nice.
Bathroom: shared bathroom, much ancient masking tape on the floor for a renovation job that never happened. It is badly needed though since much of the bathroom tile is bubble gum pink. Toilet clogged and I had to plunge it myself since owner was not around. Strange masses of plastic grocery bags stuffed next to toilet. Shower leaks copiously all over the floor. The piece de resistance: the owner keeps her cat's litter box in the guest bathroom. Again, I am not kidding. AND - she keeps her hairdryer resting on top of the litter box. Yum, did you make my breakfast with those hands?
Breakfast: gooey, sickly-sweet and not even fresh breakfast breads in sticky plastic bags, bottled fruit juices, and pre-set dishes of fruit salad. Which were fizzing. Fizzing!
So, if you want to go on a vacation and possibly experience one or more of the following:
Broken leg, tetanus, allergies, toxoplasmosis, electrocution, food poisoning, or recreational plumbing, then I recommend Burbridge St B & B. Otherwise, I strongly urge you to stay somewhere else.
