I do not have too much to add in regard to the B&B itself. The location is great and the place is quite nice and comfortable. A bit more attention to cleaning would certainly help – there was a fairly thick layer of grime on the top of the window frames and a clean room is something that we expect.
I do have a major complaint about attitude. We ordered a “bag breakfast” because we do not appreciate huge meals in the morning. I take this to be our prerogative. We received exactly what is listed on the Another Second Penny Inn website. But when we asked to eat breakfast in their lovely dining room, we were told we had a picnic basket in our room. We were really not in the mood for an October picnic so we persevered and Sandra finally consented. When we asked for drinking glasses for our juice she suggested we use the straws attached to the cartons. The next day we brought our picnic basket with us to the dining room – to be on the safe side.
This attitude has no place in a B&B.
