Good Hotel Guide Review
This fine baronial house, opposite the Necropolis, and with the cathedral as a backdrop, was built in 1896 as a halfway hostel for female prisoners and is now a comfortable B&B. The owners, Shane and Laura McKenzie, have refurbished the interior with a streamlined, contemporary look. A spiral staircase leads to plainly styled bedrooms in well-considered colours and different sizes. Grand rooms are the most spacious and have inspiring cathedral views; all rooms have crisp white linen on a handmade bed, and a well-stocked tea tray with Tunnock’s biscuits. Downstairs, under separate management, Celentano’s restaurant serves Italian-inspired food in an impressive split-level dining room, or alfresco in the garden.
