    As shown on their website, the Richards B&B is a lovely old stone home in Narragansett. We booked the two bedroom suite so we could share it with our daughter and son-in-law. Imagine our surprise to find that the most expensive "room" was the most bare bones. Decorated sparsely with no attention to charm, the suite looked like what it was originally used for when the house was built - the servants quarters. Neither our stark sitting area (which was comprised of an uncomfortable loveseat and 2 uncomfortable chairs) nor anywhere in the public areas was there a TV or even some music. We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs and there is usually a feel of welcome, but "Druids Dream" was a nightmare of cold, impersonal space. Sherry in the rooms? No. Water glasses that once used were never cleaned or replaced? Yes. The extra blanket from the closet turned out to be full of beach sand and ruined one night's sleep. Also, there were no locks on any of the doors.

    On the positive side, the breakfasts were good and the other guest rooms were lovely. However, our overall impression was of a formal and impersonal house where we did not feel comfortable or particularly welcome.

    Unique Quality: The house itself is lovely as are the grounds.
