Good Hotel Guide Review
In a ‘lovely old building’ a stroll from marketplace, cathedral and castle, this upmarket B&B is run with commitment and enthusiasm by father and daughter Dennis and Holly Bacon. Built in 1700 for the Gurney banking family, the house has many original features – fireplaces, ceiling friezes, wall panelling. The pristine and stylish bedrooms are supplied with fresh flowers, French toiletries. Spacious St Giles suite has a cast iron bed, glass doors to a bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower area. Further accommodation, ideal for a family, is available in a Georgian town house and an apartment nearby. New arrivals are welcomed with tea and home-made cake in a sitting room with ‘leather and green tweed chesterfield sofas, a table with reading material’. Breakfast, in the ‘elegant dining room’, is ‘exceptional’, with freshly squeezed orange juice, organic eggs, whisky-smoked salmon, Norfolk bacon, pancakes with Greek yogurt, maple syrup and berries, all served by ‘pleasant, friendly young people’. Afterwards, ‘there was no hurry to get us out. We wanted to explore. They stored our luggage and allowed us to leave our car in their car park until 3 pm.’
