“More like a hostel than a B&B”
Reviewed 10 July 2010

Rosies B&B was more like a hostel than a bed and breakfast. For $90, it was overpriced. The rooms were old, the floors creeked and the room was freezing cold. The room had an old wall heater that had a 45min timer on it. We had to get up multiple times during the night to restart the heater as the room was freezing. The bed was quite squishy and my feet hung off the end (Im only 5'8). We both slept terribly. The breakfast was alright, it was continental (which is advertised) with cereal, toast, yogurt and mixed fruit but for a bed and breakfast I have definately had better. We ended up checking out a day early and would not recommend this B&B. It reminded me too much of a hostel at a much higher price. It is in need of an update- new beds and heaters are a must.
