This place was fantastic!!! Location, parking, room, amenities and breakfast were all amazing. I didn't feel I was staying in a normal B&B, I felt like I was staying with extended family (but in a good way). The house is not a point of interest B&B, it's just a really nice house in a beautiful neighborhood with a huge lawn, garden, pool, movies and extremely friendly and accommodating owners. All of these things (including the breakfast, which was delicious) totally surpassed expectations.
Primrose had two drawbacks, however, one major, one minor. The serious drawback, and deal breaker for me for a return stay, was the bed. It was very hard and both my partner and I slept terribly the two nights we were there. I often sleep better in hotels and B&Bs because the mattresses in these places are usually softer than the one we have at home. I would not recommend this place if you need a soft bed (which I do). If you like a very firm mattress, you may find this place perfect.
The other drawback, which was minor, was that we could not close the blinds or curtains entirely against the morning light. The windows at the top of the room were very high, the blinds didn't reach and the curtains didn't quite keep out the light. It was bright in the room at 6:30am and this was early for us. We like it dark until it's time to get up. This one is not a deal breaker, but something they might consider amending, no biggie.
