We spent one night at the Book Lovers B&B, and hope to return for a longer spell ... it's one of the coziest, most enveloping places I've ever stayed! We enjoyed the charming, comfy rooms (complete with everything to make your own tea or coffee), and a large, well-appointed updated bathroom. There was a lovely view of the sea from our window. The breakfast/sitting room was spacious and comfortable, and I loved the shelves and shelves of books in all the rooms ... it was tempting just to hunker down there and read!
Bob and Mariko were marvelous hosts, we felt very welcome, and the location was ideal, just steps from the museum and the sea and shops, and not far from the Cobb. Breakfast was grand, whether you wanted the full cooked English variety, or just some tea and cereal.
As in many old cities, parking can be a problem in Lyme, and we greatly appreciated the use of a small garage a few blocks away, which meant we didn't have to worry about the car.
Note: Located as it is in the heart of Old Lyme, the B&B has quite a few stairs, which wind up and around, so be prepared to negotiate them!
