Bitter Sweet Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 8 September 2004

This is a bizarre review because we didn't actually stay at the Bitter Sweet B&B. We didn't eat the breakfast. We didn't walk in the door. We didn't stay there because we were so seethingly angry with the proprietor that we opted for the Super 8 Motel in Hyde Park, NY on our wedding night. This despite a reservation. We gave the room to our friends and their two energetic, voracious young daughters.

A small revenge for the act of ultimate betrayal by the proprietor. Quite simply, she failed to honor a confirmed reservation for five rooms, although we had, at her insistence, sent her our credit card number by phone and by fax. She decided to give us only three, without notice, before a holiday weekend. This may seem like a minor slight, but this was our wedding weekend, and we had guests coming from all over the world literally.

This is every traveler's greatest fear - showing up at the appointed time and place with reservation in hand, only to find out that you do not have a room and there is little else available.

We are on this site because we are the types of people who plan and worry and reserve and confirm and confirm again.

The Bittersweet does not deserve our trust or our business.
