Pros: The room facilities, both bedrooms and sitting rooms, were really nice.
Cons: One member if staff on the desk who greeted us was 'as cold as ice'/ lacking in warm communication skills. Secondly, although we expressed a dietary requirement ( dairy intolerance) there was absolutely no provision whatsoever for that, and so we had to make do with coffee and tea without any of the alternative milks that are available, and all the hot foods had egg and milk in them. It was great for carnivores also, but there was no meat/free provision. We had toast with jam on it, therefore, for breakfast, and fruit.

Pros: Room needed two chairs and a small desk or writing table.
Cons: If the room had been better appointed, then value for money would be good. The room was very attractive, but without adequate chairs and small table, it could not be well used.

Pros: Lovely area; convenient location to visit other towns. The B&B was very clean and comfortable. Mary was so pleasant and helpful, more so than other management staff.
Cons: The breakfast, as described on the web site, seems bountiful but it was really just "sufficient." Not a lot of choice. Third floor room; no elevator.

Pros: The location was good, very central to everything in Marblehead. Very quiet on an evening as well as overnight. No noise from any other part of the accommodation. The breakfast was good and in a very nice room overlooking the swimming pool and gardens. All the staff were very courteous, pleasant and very helpful in every way.
Cons: The size of room we were given initially before we asked to be upgraded was very small and cramped. The room that Booking.Com showed you as an example of what you had booked, was not a true representation of what you got. You weren't able to have control over the air conditioning, but that they would regulate it on request. Overall this wasn't a huge problem at this time, bearing in mind it was late May.
