We reserved this B&B last minute while on the 8pm ferry from PEI to NS. To secure a room (with less than 2h arrival time) we had to leave our credit card details, which we did. The B&B was easy to find and nearby the ferry, which was nice for the late arrival. Unfortunately, our prepaid reserve put us up in the tight quarters of the space restricted third floor. Poorly hung wallpaper, thrift store quality furniture, uncomfortable beds and pillows were all still present further to the terrible review from November 2010 (“Only slightly better than sleeping on a park bench...”). I kept my shoes on in the bedroom and the bath as old buckled carpet looked and felt dirty underfoot.
We are avid travellers and have stayed in many european B&B's, this being one the first Canadian B&B's for us. Jamie and Debbie represented as friendly hosts, but I can confidently say this is one of the worst kept places I have ever stayed. I would never ask someone to stay in conditions we paid for (I can't believe I didn't walk out), and it concerns me that it is okay to them to offer customers such grim accommodation. I don't know what standard Canada Select is using, but I will be reporting the conditions we experienced to that entity.
