Stayed here for 1 night for our anniversary. The house is very nice and well kept. The rooms were extremely comfortable and cozy. The trip was somewhat an unexpected expense as we just came back from Mexico so we opted for the cheapest room available. The room was still very nice and it was all the space we needed as we were only there for one night. We did peek into the larger rooms with the private balcony and will definitely book those rooms for next time.
The cookies upon arrival were excellent and I appreciated the free little extras Shaun provided. The chocolate dipped strawberries in our room was a very nice touch. The complimentary drinks in the mini fridge was well received by my partner.
Breakfast was tasty. The only negative thing I can say is that we would have preferred to have breakfast at a separate table and not have to dine with the other guests in a common table. This is not really a complaint, however, as there are many people who would enjoy dining with the other guests and get to meet new people. My partner is more of a private person and would have preferred to have our own table. I didn't mind either way. Other than that small bit, I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.
