Good Hotel Guide Review
In an area of white stucco terraces, a Victorian former pub relives as a hip hotel for people who know what is good and know what they like. One of four (see index) created by Charlotte and Justin Salisbury, it is ‘quirky and full of character’, with upcycled materials and vintage furniture used to stylish effect. From first-floor ‘small’ doubles to suites, rooms have air conditioning, well-stocked minibar, a Roberts radio; the best have an espresso machine. The Loft has a sitting area, French-style bath and walk-in shower, while the Art Deco-style Club Suite has leather club armchairs, velvet sofa, freestanding roll-top bath and walk-in shower. ‘The details are well thought through’, from lighting, to plug sockets, to storage. There is a basement cocktail bar, while, at street level, the Cambridge Street Kitchen dispenses food all day. Breakfast choices include spiced porridge, avocado toast, freshly baked pastries. For a light lunch, perhaps a grass-fed burger, or spiced cauliflower with bulgur wheat, pomegranate, raisins and minted yogurt. At night, Elliot Miller cooks such dishes as halibut, mussels, pak choi, salty fingers, coconut and lemongrass broth.
