It was a VERY long time ago that I did this,and I really enjoyed it.We went as a family and it was so well-appointed and the owners were helpful as well as friendly without intruding upon our space. I really like this idea when the owners have a great reputation. My friends in England stay in a B & B in Norfolk a couple of times every year and another couple I know stay in one in Wales. They love it as pets are always welcome where they stay.
Yes I stayed in one down at Albany with a man I was going out with a few years ago.
We found it wasn't private enough, the owners seemed to want company all the time and also we could hear another couple next door and.....I don't need to tell you what they were doing, needless to say we didn't do much at all!!
Yes, many times. We like them a lot! Usually when staying in a hotel we would dine out at a proper restaurant, so a B+B works well for us. We have book called "The Best B+Bs in France" and using that we have stayed in some spectacular locations - old castles, a medieval fortified farmhouse, a vineyard, an ultra-modern minimalist black and white house with a full spa in the basement..... great fun and much more interesting than staying in large chain hotels that look the same no matter where you are in the world! It's a good way to find character and quirkiness on your travels and also get some local insight into where you are staying.
Years ago in UK but the owners were SO mean with the food rations 1 sausage or 2 1 egg not 2 oh goodness it was a nightmare - particularly when I asked for extra 2 towels for the bathroom. I thought we were going to be asked to leave.
Yes, I stayed in one deep in the forest for a romantic weekend. We had a terrible experience from go to woh. The manager wasn't very good at her job I don't think. We had to leave before our weekend was over. We weren't offered a refund, so we took them to court and won. It hasn't soured me on the whole idea and I would certainly try a B & B accomodation again.
