There was a messup with our booking. We had booked through their website at about 9am the last available room (a twin) for the same day, and when we arrived about 5pm we were suroprised to see the sign "vacancies" and to be shown into a double room. Wehen pointing out that we had booked a twin, but only because doubles were no longer available, we were assured that both options were available and kept the double.
One hour later however the couple who had booked the last double - and for whom we had been mistaken - arrived and the mixup came out. Well. This other couple were our friends, travelling separately, we had arranged to meet there and they had booked before us... so, we were 2 Italian couples with similar names, I can understand they confused us and as we were among friends the room swap was no problem at all. But it did bother me that the B&B hat not taken notice of our booking at all and if anyone had enquired before our arrivl we would have found no available room (despite confirmation e-mail and all).
That was a shame because for the rest the B&B is really pretty, in a lovely position, recently and stylishly decorated, breakfast is particularily good (a lovely buffet of fresh fruit and cereals and yogurts, and several choices of cooked breakfast, all yummy) and staff is very friendly.
Our room anyway was also not great. Pretty and with a lovely view but quite small and lacking furniture: beside the bed we only had one chair, some hooks on the wall and a shelf with very little free space beside kettle and cups.
