This review is from: AA Bed & Breakfast Guide 2014 (AA Lifestyle Guides) (Paperback)
...if you're looking for something a bit special, and money is no object. I wanted a guide to B&Bs that didn't cost an arm and a leg, places that were clean, basic, with a decent breakfast that didn't really need to come with a 5* rating. I didn't need a possibly listed building, set in it's own grounds, with panoramic views of mountains or lakes. And I certainly didn't need the prices! So all in all it's been of no help at all, unless, as I say, you're looking for more upmarket B&Bs, as I'm sure many people are. For me, though, if you're only staying one night (and in this guide many places specified two nights minimum, which is also no good for me), you arrive a bit latish, then go out for a meal, come back, fall in to bed, up the next morning and you're off again, then the panoramic views, the grounds, tv in the bathroom, etc.etc. are all a bit of a waste of time because you're not there long enough to enjoy them! But maybe I'm just living in a different world. There are I think slightly cheaper, more modest B&Bs in this guide, although even those were too expensive for my pocket. So it was back to the online searching!
