We booked this B&B after the Mangy Moose had no room for the end of our trip from an Alaskan Cruise which was at the tail end of our honeymoon trip. We took the top of the world room, and although comfortable (the bed was wonderful) we found the decor quite bland. The entire B&B was clean, and the permanent renting residents there very friendly. The main living area of the B&B offered a rather large TV with cable for entertainment, but the room itself had no cable, and only a small TV with a built in VCR which had terrible quality. Not a good place to want to stay in to watch a movie one night. The Large King bed was very comfortable. We could not figure out how to turn on the fireplace despite us both knowing how to use one. The Jacuzzi tub was quite nice to relax in, and the towels were definitely better than any hotel. The next morning for breakfast was when we were very disappointed. Having stayed at many B&B's, one would expect the breakfast to be more than a couple of muffins, some toast, and salmon cakes. That was all we were provided with. The staff was friendly, but they do not live on site. For the amount of money we paid(187.00 a night) we could have stayed at the marriot and had a full buffet breakfast, cable TV, and a bed just as comfortable. The location was lovely, but Anchorage itself leaves something to be desired.
