Thank you for this review. First experience in a B&B annd important it was special. The best part of being in self contained apartment, which does not need to be generic as hotels, motels have to be, is discovering how special that experience can be. Dalfruin B&B with stunning gardens is just that. Warm wishes Andrea and Keith Dalfruin B&B
