Good Hotel Guide Review
‘There’s a vibrant atmosphere’ at Tiina Carr’s ‘stylish, Scandi-chic’ hotel, in a ‘buzzy neighbourhood’ that’s ‘worth a visit on its own’. Choose among modern bedrooms varying in size, from the snug Pigeon’s Loft in the eaves to the spread-your-wings Dovecote, which has a Juliet balcony overlooking city and park. Every room has cotton robes, lambswool blankets, an espresso machine and a wicker-hamper tea tray. ‘Traffic noise from the road didn’t stop me from sleeping soundly in my comfortable, good-sized bed. From my spacious room, Chiffchaff’s Post, the noise I did hear was a delightful dawn chorus of birdsong from the adjacent park.’ The café/restaurant, ‘aptly called a neighbourhood kitchen’, is popular early to late. Here, and on the terrace in fine weather, ‘smartly dressed and well-trained’ staff serve chef Leslie Buddington’s ‘excellent, interesting’ menu of ‘Nordic tapas’, picnic platters, small and big plates. Among vegan and gluten-free options, try, perhaps, an ‘impressive’ beetroot and lentil pie with a sweet-potato topping. At breakfast: waffles, smoothies, ‘beautifully grilled’ bacon.
