This is a classy old B&B with an antique type décor. They have a very good breakfast prepared by a good cook, there is a happy hour with wine and snacks at 5:30 and desert at 8:30. The happy hour and desert are held in the parlor, which is the common area. These events gave us the opportunity to meet the other guests and have some nice conversations.
Unfortunately, we were in room 110. In this hotel, registration is on the second floor. Room 110 is entered directly from the sidewalk. Room 110 is on the first floor, next to the entry steps and below registration and directly below the parlor. This means that from just before 7:00AM until 10:30PM there are constant steps and constant talking from above this unit with very little noise insulation. Both the happy hour and the desert are held directly above this unit. As result, you cannot go to bed before 10:30 or sleep in past 7:00 or take a nap.
We were also disappointed with the staff at registration. We checked in at 1:30 and the lady at check in made it clear that she had no time to help us in any way. She passed us off to some guy to show us around and take us to our room. He went so fast that my wife could not keep up. We are used to the people at reception helping us with sightseeing, restaurants, etc. This was not possible here.
We would return here but would be very careful with the room assignment. There are some good rooms and some bad rooms.
