Let me start by admitting that I have almost no experience with B&B's, so this is the novice perspective.
I found AHH to be a curious little place, with many interesting design elements and amenities not found in traditional hotels. I though it was fun.
I stayed for 2 nights.
The breakfasts are on the light side but not bad at all and it was nice to meet other guests there and chat with Cyd before breakfast.
I never had any problems with the noise there but the walls/doors didn't look soundproofed at all (typical for B&Bs, as I my friends later told me). In the same vein - if you used to stay in large hotels, you probably need to keep an open mind. I can see how some people can be irritated by the same irregularities I found amusing (in-room safe not bolted down, furniture with cracks on it, etc.). If you want a sterile standardized environment AHH may be not be the right place for you.
Complains - None really. Well, there is no sign outside and parking can be tricky.
The verdict - I would probably come back if I'm in the area. The price may be a tad high but it's a relaxing stay, very warm feeling comparing to chain hotels.
