My wife and I arrived at the b&b earlier then expected (8 am) after an abrupt change in our travel plans. Upon ringing the bell, we were rudely told told over the speaker to come back at 12:00. I asked if we could at least leave our bags at the b&b and return at noon to check in, but the voice simply responded "No. Open 12:00." I asked again if there was anyway he could help and allow us to leave our bags and was again rudely told "No. Open 12:00." No matter what I asked, I got the same broken record response over and over again.
I understand we arrived early and that this is a small b&b and not a large hotel. However, I don't think it is not too much to ask for them to at least let us leave our bags. Although my few emails with the b&b were pleasant prior to arriving (although the last one inquiring about airport transfer went unanswered) my experience there was anything but. My interaction with the mystery voice from the b&b was the polar opposite of the other reviewers. Luckily, our taxi was not too far down the street and we were able to flag it down and have them take us to another hotel (there is not much else around the b&b as it is located on a dead end street). I hope others continue to have great experiences at the b&b, but make sure not to show up before noon!!!
