Good Hotel Guide Review
Ancient mariners and young romantics, follow Coleridge’s footsteps to this charming harbour town – then step into Annie and Jason Robinson’s chic B&B. Remodelled from an 18th-century town house and shop, it is swathed in muted shades of grey, white and stone; its slate floors, silver velvet sofa and hefty wood dining table bestow warm sophistication. Upstairs, well-thought-out bedrooms are simply done with style: find a large bed, a mural based on an Old Master painting, graphite-coloured carpets, sash windows. Bathrooms have robes, a roll-top slipper bath and a large walk-in shower. Jason Robinson serves praiseworthy breakfasts (including American-style pancakes with fruit, yogurt and maple syrup, and other vegetarian options). A light charcuterie board supper is available on request, as is a lunchtime picnic hamper with a rug. Lounge, dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. 7 miles from Dunster Castle; West Somerset Steam Railway. 4 bedrooms. Per room B&B £135. Closed Christmas.
