Hubby and I stayed at the Dicken's House B &B for 2 nights and found it to be quite delightful. The location is fabulous, right in the heart of Historic Northeast St. Petersburg with easy walking to restaurants and museums. The host Ed is a charming fellow who has creating such a great atmosphere. Breakfast (delicious) was like dining with old friends.
The room had every little amenity you could think of, from nice bath product to a flashlight, irons, spray starch etc. Good sound proofing. Spotless. Comfy. A very good value. We wished we had found it on our first house hunting venture as it was a great base for everything. A good way to get a feel of the local culture.
I am very fussy. I like a nice pillow and a down blanket, reassurance that the glasses in the bedroom are sterile from the kitchen etc, and Ed provides all of that. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
