“First Experience in B&B”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Wonderful old refurbished home. We stayed the weekend and felt right at home. This is close to a number of areas we were planning to visit. The owners were very welcoming and provided some great recommendations for daily activities. We had fresh fruit, scones and homemade lemon curd along with the traditional hot bacon and egg meal. We also had a quiche one day (YUMMY!) Being our first B&B we would rate it excellent. We plan on returning soon.

Room Tip: There are a few rooms with bathrooms, be sure you ask for one. The Victoria was wondervul!

smack in the middle of downtown and a short walk to river walk, pier 22, and a strip of busy bars and restaurants, sits a 90 year old B&B owned by John & Jenny Taylor. Its just far enough away that sitting on the porch relaxing, reading a book, or enjoying a glass of wine is delightful. Some of the negative reviews came at a time that other people were running the operation. John & Jenny are now back in charge and its makes the difference. If you are into English Traditional High Tea, they have a room dedicated for just such a service. Note if you are looking for Beach & Bars, this is not the place but you are 8 miles from such places and can sleep quietly without the noise and party types that tend to stay at the beach hotels. Go you wont be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Great for those with a car.

The original English owners have taken the management again. They are great people and fun to talk too. The Inn is beautiful and located in the heart of the historic district, walking distance to restaurants and bar's. We will be back.

Extremely disappointing. The owners seemed to resent interacting with us and were cold and rude. Breakfast was horrible and bland. The fruit consisted of a can of mixed fruit dumped in a bowl. The place was empty except for us, I guess people have figured it out that this place is no longer what it must have been.

jentaylor, Owner at The Londoner Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, 4 February 2013
In October 2011 (due to an emergency surgery) I rented my bed and breakfast (The Londoner) to a German couple who ran it from then Until December 2012. Unfortunately, as you can see from the reviews it was not successful, if you stayed at the house between October 2011 and December 2012, and your stay was anything less than a great time please accept my sincere apologies and if you are in the area in future please give us another try, first night free!
I have honoured all of the reservations that were paid to The German Inn for January and am now running the bed and breakfast myself as The Londoner once again. I look forward to welcoming everyone to the Bed and Breakfast personally and if you still have any concerns please call me on my cell phone 941 465 9636.

Delayed review due to misplaced notes about my stay in December 2011.

During my stay I overheard prior owner (British accent) training the new German owners. So many of the issues I will highlight here may have been addressed in the interim.

- New owners were uncomfortable with the B&B expectation around cordiality and conversation.
- Room cleaning was made bed, but bathroom not touched.
- Mini fridge had three Dasani waters thrown in, one of which was half empty.
- TV in room is miniscule...maybe 18"
- Chairs in room showing age with frayed upholstery.
- For breakfast, obvious friends of establishment are being served bacon and eggs to order, while I have premade cold fritatta, with teenager of friends group watching video on his laptop of someone farting into a microphone.
- On Monday, hosted a boiserous womens party with about 30 people - right under my room.
- Garbage day is Tuesday, you will know by the commotion, as well as the dog barking.

Chose this place for a birthday tea with six friends and it was delightful. Service was courteous and the food delicious. Tea was endless and made in a proper pot. We had a choice of lovely tea cups and three tiers of scrumptious goodies accompanied by lemon curd, devon cream and cherry jam. We were left to our own devices once the table was spread and we had a wonderful couple of hours of conversation. I would recommend booking a tea for a special occasion or something different to do.
