“fab B&B but noisy road”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

this place was lovely, the outside of the building is being completely renovated hence the untidy entrance and scafolding behind the building, but the inside is very modern and clean. my room (sunflower room) was the one with balcony and private external bathroom and both bed- and bath-rooms were very spacious, the bedroom had heating, paintings on the high ceilings and tv. the only negative thing was the noise from the street below in the morning, it is a main road and the windows are not double glazed. plus the trains go passed too. I chose this B&B because it's 6mins walk from the station, in between the town and the station really, ideal if you are on public transport. the reception must know what time you are arrrivng as there is nobody in the building and you pay on arrival (I didn't see her again). as in most B&B you can't pay by card because of the high bank charges. there was some sort of light breakfast offered by the hotel but since I was going off early she gave me a voucher for a nearby cafe. I ended up going to the café downstairs instead, the costa cafe, where they were very nice, the food was good and the prices were unbeatable. there seems to be a recuring problem with wi-fi in the B&B so I couldn't use the internet. however I would stay here again because despite the noisy street I slept well and liked the room. very good position in town.

Room Tip: noisy in front. didn't see the back rooms but there are building works going on so could be dark...

Grazie mille Serena per la tua recensione. Conoscere il giudizio dei miei ospiti è per me molto importante e soprattutto è molto importante sistemare eventuali punti deboli della mia struttura.
Purtroppo in questo momento il palazzo, sotto la tutela dei beni culturali, è in fase di restauro e voi ospiti che arrivate siete costretti a trovare un ingresso poco elegante e per questo posso solo scusarmi anche se non dipende da me. Spero però che le stanze del mio b&b possano risollevare gli animi con il loro arredamento e il loro calore.
Mi dispiace molto anche per l'assenza di internet. In quei giorni tutta la zona ha subito un grave danno a causa di un furto dei fili di rame e questo mi ha impedito anche di utilizzare il pos (per questo non hai potuto pagare con carta di credito).
Serena, effettivamente ci siamo viste solo il giorno del tuo check-in ma quando io vengo lì e voi siete nelle vostre stanze io evito di disturbarvi per rispettare la vostra privacy. Per questo motivo preferisco sempre che siate voi a venire a parlare con me e non il contrario.
Se tornerai ti prometto che il servizio sarà ancora più efficiente e grazie ancora per il tuo buon giudizio e per la tua sincerità.
Se tornerai a trovarci inoltre ti ricordo che dispongo anche di camere interne (dove peraltro stanno realizzando il bagno in camera), che seppur non abbiano la vista mare sono molto silenziose.
