Good Hotel Guide Review

Queen Victoria’s photographer chose a ‘gorgeous spot’ on a hilltop for his red brick villa, with ‘lovely views’ of Bath in the distance. Today, the late Victorian house is run as a ‘friendly’, upmarket B&B by ‘kind’ hostess Susan Keeling and ‘helpful, considerate’ manager Grant Atkinson. Choose among ‘luxurious-feeling’ bedrooms, each named after a writer, with floral fabrics, comfy seating, a book or two by the wordsmith in question; some larger rooms are set up for a family. ‘Our troop of four was put in two rooms opposite each other. The children were delighted – they thought theirs was better than ours. A sweet note in the room welcomed them by name, and gave the number to call if they needed us.’ Breakfast in the ‘pretty’ conservatory is a fine way to wake, with fruits, meats, cheeses and ‘fantastic’ home-made muesli (though an ‘odd’ choice of piped music); cooked dishes cost extra. ‘The lady serving couldn’t have been nicer, and made it an enjoyable experience.’ After, take ‘a fun walk’ down to the Kennet and Avon Canal, then a stroll into town.
