The Bad
There were few concerns or complaints found for this B&B, among the reviews used for this analysis. However, a couple of guests complained that this property did not have on-site parking and one reviewer found the nearest parking facility too far away (about a 10-minute walk).

While the food served at the free breakfast was frequently praised, as mentioned above, a couple of guests were uncomfortable with the breakfast being plated for them, instead of a buffet-style service. One reviewer said, "the owner (who also does the cooking) will stay with you at the table as you eat, so it makes for awkward situations if you don't like what they served for breakfast that day".

As stated above, a couple of guests thought that the room rates were expensive.
