It is with great pleasure that we write this review about Shamrock Suites, as we had such a wonderful stay there. The Florenceville-Bristol area of New Brunswick, Canada, is all the better for having such a high calibre Bed and Breakfast in the area. My wife and I called the Shamrock Suites early one evening, without prior knowledge or reservations, only to be warmly welcomed by Pam and Harvey. Upon arrival, they invited us to join them for dinner as all the other restaurants in the area were fully booked. We savoured a five-star meal in gracious and elegant surroundings while partaking in interesting conversation and appreciating very amusing jokes. All in all, the recipe for a most enjoyable and memorable evening!
The Wexford Suite was immaculately clean and very well decorated so that our every need was anticipated and ably taken care of. The bed was extremely comfortable, the linen was fresh and in pristine condition, as was the complimentary bathrobe. The bathroom was well set-up with toiletries including shampoo, body wash, deodorant, shaving foam, and a ‘ReadyBrush’ toothbrush and paste for our use. The towels were new and thick and fluffy; and a pleasure to use! A hairdryer was also available in the bathroom.
There are other suites available, each one delightfully decorated and most welcoming. There is even a suite in the loft that is suitable for a family as it has two rooms and a living area; and is child-friendly. All the suites are suitable for a short stay or a longer stay; should one be on a business trip.
The kitchen is well setup with a variety of appliances that would come in handy on any trip and afford any guest a degree of independence that is most welcome. Appliances include a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, a stove and a fridge/freezer that was stocked with a variety of delectable treats. These breakfast items came in handy the next day upon contemplating breakfast. Just leading off the kitchen / dining room is a small office that includes a spot to use the computer and link up with the outside world via the Internet.
During the course of our stay, our hostess enquired about our itinerary and went on to suggest places of interest. On departing the following day, she handed us a map on which she had highlighted the best route for us to take as well as places of interest in our next destination. A thoughtful touch that proved, once again, they are truly professional in what they do!
We would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Shamrock Suites as the experience will be the highlight of your trip. We arrived not knowing the gracious couple and left feeling that we were saying good bye to dear friends.
