Our trip to Garden Gate was our first time at a B&B. We didn’t know what to expect. The food we ate was great but it definitely felt uncomfortable that the innkeeper would become upset when you could not attend breakfast or did not show up. I also felt that some of the little things were lacking. For example, if you have a double whirlpool in the room it would be nice to have bubble bath or those small touches that you think of when staying at a small place. There also was not mini toiletries that I would expect on vacation just in case you forget something.
When I think of a B&B I also expect to converse with the other people staying there, but the breakfast conversation was taken over by the innkeeper.
She came into our room when we were out and we did not know that would be happening. It would have been nice to have a do not disturb sign. We were also expected at breakfast at 9 am which was not shared prior to booking. This effected our daily activities and plans.
It was great to be provided muffins and water before trips and activities. We also would come home to cake.
B&Bs are not for everyone. I wish I would have known some of these things prior to my stay.More
