We recently stayed at this Inn for the second time. The first time was over ten years ago. Our return was disappointing. The room was quiet, bed very comfortable but the rugs on the floor felt dirty and were really more like scattered bath mats. I pushed them out of the way just so they would not be underfoot.
Breakfast is served only at 9:30 which for us is later -- we like to get a start on the day and are early risers. It would be nice to have an option to eat earlier. I think the innkeeper wants to keep things easy and one time to serve is easier for her. She was also put off by my question as to whether the eggs had cheese in them. Her response was you should have told me you had restrictions. She did offer after this rebuff to make me scrambled eggs, which were nicely prepared.
Also the restaurant recommendations on their website were for local places that look like they see little business. We ate at St. Orres and also at the Stanford lodge both of which were excellent. The review of St. Orres that the innkeepers gave was not nearly as favorable as I would write.
The innkeepers have been at the property for 14 years and perhaps being of service to others may be wearing thin. With a tough economy I am sure it is not easy to do their job. For the money there are better options.
