The owners were not very friendly or sociable. In fact the husband barely spoke to us.
The insulation between the owners' living quarters and our room was non-existant. In particular, we could hear EVERYTHING the owners were doing...urinating in the toilet, excreting noise, toilet flushing, blow drying hair, droping the blow dryer cord on the floor and talking. The owners got up very early each day and they woke us up with the aforementioned noises.
The breakfasts were terrible. The Majestic Ocean B&B website indicates that the breakfast is great; however, this is definately false. Breakfast on the first day consisted of cold pancakes which were piled in a bowl and were on the table for at least an hour before we came to the table. Breakfast on day 2 consisted of fruit in a bowl and there wasn't very much ...we left hungry. On the third day breakfast consisted of cold apple crisp stuff. On the fouth day we had eggs which were warm but were just dumped on our plate; also the kids wanted some milk but the owners did not purchase milk the day before so the kids drank water instead. Overall breakfast was very disappointing and we left the table hungry.
There were cookies provided in plastic bags in the room....we initially thought what a great idea. However, I ate 2 of the cookies and I then had a terrible chemical taste in my mouth which lasted for hours on end. I brushed my teeth and the taste was still there. STAY AWAY FROM THE COOKIES.
Overall the B&B was over priced and we will not be staying there again.
