Good Hotel Guide Review
Guests this year continue to endorse Liz and Rob Cameron’s ‘conveniently located’ city-centre B&B. ‘It is a great place to stay,’ said one visitor. ‘A delightful and refreshing choice,’ said another. The Camerons, ‘generous’, ‘hospitable’ hosts, have smartly refurbished their Victorian house, once the student home of the Duke of Gloucester. Newspapers, guides and books are available in the ‘pleasant’ sitting room; a fridge and honesty bar on the first-floor landing are ‘a good idea’. Bedrooms are praised. ‘Our room, up two small flights of stairs, had a tiny sitting room that opened on to a small but very comfortable and tastefully decorated bedroom; French windows led to a private decking area.’ Another guest liked her ‘attractive, quiet’, top-floor room in the building next door. ‘There was good bedside lighting; we slept well in our large, luxurious bed.’ Breakfast, with a ‘marvellous selection’ of home-made compotes and jams, is ‘first rate’. ‘There was an abundance of fresh fruits, yogurts and wonderful breads; excellent grilled bacon and baked tomatoes. We enjoyed the soft operatic background music.’ ‘Well placed for transport links.’ (Jackie Tunstall-Pedoe, MG)
