On arriving at this Bed&Breakfast with a cute website, we were genuinely shocked to discover our room resembled a cellar/sheep pen. Maybe this sounds a little overdramatic? If so, picture a long, narrow rectangular room at the bottom of a barn, gloomy and dank, smelling distinctly of mould, with tiny windows at each end that don't open. The room was not particularly cheap.
To be fair the other rooms in the Bed&Breakfast may be entirely different (none were available to switch to), but judging from the decor in the room and in the main building's reception and breakfast area, a lot of thrift furniture/carpets the wrong side of the charming/dirty line have been used.
The staff/owners are sweet, if disorganized about confirming reservations, and at least let us cancel our stay without paying. (We were glad as mould gives us streaming noses and itchy throats.) We're not fussy travellers but do look for somewhere to stay that's clean and not depressing.
After investigating other accommodation on Faro, and contending with the supremely unhelpful staff at the Tourist Office, it struck us that places to stay there are both hard to come by and unimpressive. Visit Faro for the day but stay on Gotland itself, which has an unfounded reputation for being touristy but really isn't once you get away from Visby. Lindvide B&B was great, for example.More
