Good Hotel Guide Review
Ripe for discovery, this Grade II* listed building with 18th-century origins has evolved into a contemporary B&B that pays homage to the town’s most revered son, Charles Darwin. The sitting room and snug have ample space for repose; there are board games, books and an honesty bar. Individually decorated bedrooms, some overlooking the sunken garden, have appropriate curiosities and ‘a number of thoughtful touches’: dressing gowns, a digital alarm radio, tea- and coffee-making facilities. A ‘delicious’ breakfast is served in the conservatory – ‘and the options appeared endless’. Discount cards are offered to residents for two sister restaurants, both within a ten-minute walk of the B&B. The River Severn is steps away.
