The innkeepers were a lovely lesbian couple. They made sure we were settled in comfortably (they even offered more blankets if we needed them, since it was October), and there was a basket of scented soaps and lotions in the bathroom. They also showed us that we had our own private entrance and deck. We even had our own private picnic table. And we were provided with a parking spot.
For breakfast, they provided fruit, yogurt, and cereal. There was also a basket of a variety of gourmet coffee packets near our coffee pot in our studio kitchen.
Although Halley’s was not really close to the shopping district (you could walk it, but it was a pretty long one), the ambience made it up tenfold. As I mentioned, the innkeepers were very kind. They were informative as well. For example, they told us the best places to eat and where to shop for bargains. Lastly, our studio was extremely clean, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. Consequently, I recommend this bed-and-breakfast (but I am not sure if it is still in operation; I can’t seem to find it listed on the webpage they use to advertise on).
