We stayed in Akwaaba for 6 days in April 2009 and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Kristin is a charming and welcoming host who makes everyone feel at home. At the communal breakfast table we met guests from all over America and enjoyed chatting well after we had finished the delicious breakfasts. The breakfasts are different every day and Kristin made a special trip to the supermarket to make sure I had veggie alternatives. We stayed in the Inspiration room at the top of the house. As well as a (rather small) shower room there is a romantic clawfoot bath in the huge room and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The parlour, hall and dining room are beautifully decorated and we enjoyed spending time in them, especially during 'happy hour' with a glass of wine- a relaxing way to unwind after a days sightseeing. I would happily recommend this b and b and must say a quick hello to Auntie Beverley who has also written a review and who we enjoyed chatting to over breakfast!!
