The innkeeper was born to do this - she came out in the rain at night to check us in; gave us a tour, showed us how the hot tub worked, explained the breakfast scenario. Fresh paint in our room - not like "fumes," but just no chips or wear and tear. Good paint in cheery Tuscan colors is a good bellwether for the rest of the establishment.
The breakfast was a custom made omelette with potatoes, muesli, yogurt, juice, tea, coffee, and chopped fresh fruit. I need to explain another detail. The omelette had mushrooms, onions and yellow/orange peppers. Not green peppers: yellow/orange peppers. It's a little more expensive. It requires a little more thought. If you ever get anything with peppers in it in a restaurant, it's usually gross green peppers that nobody likes. They went with the yellow peppers. That sums up this place: they go a little bit extra. For the price and level of service, it can't be beat on value. I will definitely stay there again if I need a B&B in the area.
