Fodor's Review

Three houses make up the accommodations at this B&B, run by the owner of the popular Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub. The four Garden Suites, each with a separate bed and living room, are the nicest—and priciest. Surrounding an ivy-draped courtyard, each has a private entrance and is decorated with Asian antiques, Balinese teak butlers, and other objects gathered during the owner's world travels. Five rooms in the 1884 adults-only Heritage House are smaller (and less expensive)

but nicely decorated with local art and English and Welsh antiques; most have fireplaces and double whirlpool tubs with rain showers. A one-bedroom bungalow has a private garden. Wherever you stay, you'll have a breakfast basket delivered in the morning and a complimentary beer-and-truffle tasting in the restaurant.

All was great, well what I remember!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Spinnakers for three nights. Today is our last day and we don't want to leave. The food is great, the beer is amazing and the staff are so friendly. We feel like we work here or are a part of their family. This place is so cool we can't wait to come back! Kate & Kev

Never again!

We booked the most expensive room at Spinnaker's, $250.00 plus tax nightly. It was definately not worth it. The rooms (bedroom and livingroom) were old looking and not clean. The old fashioned bathtub was not condusive for a shower. The shower curtain wrapped you in plastic. Service given by the manager, Lesley, was given begrudgingly. The bed was not clean, the sheets not soft, oh I could go on and on. You could have much nicer accomodations, in

a better location, for less. We would not stay there again.
