Good Hotel Guide Review
Father-and-daughter team Dennis and Holly Bacon run their upmarket modern B&B in a ‘convenient central location’ within walking distance of the Theatre Royal and the hum and hustle of the central marketplace. Beyond the ‘sweet, neat sitting room’, there are fresh flowers and high-end toiletries in the uncluttered bedrooms and suites. Tea and ‘really good home baking’ are offered as a sweet greeting. ‘Our first-floor suite had panelled walls and original stripped-and-stained wood floors; a lounge area with a chesterfield sofa bed. The bathroom, though small, was very good; the loo and extra washbasin were separate.’ (A two-bedroom apartment and Georgian town house nearby can also be booked for a family or travelling group.) In the morning, rustic bread and home-made jams and marmalade make breakfast special. The tables in the ‘elegant dining room’ are ‘beautifully laid’ with bone china; cooked to order, breakfast dishes include crème fraiche pancakes, maple syrup, berries; scrambled eggs with smoked salmon; a full English. In fine weather, a continental breakfast may be taken in the courtyard garden. Private parking nearby must be pre-booked (£15 per night).
