Good Hotel Guide Review
James Gray, a former TV set dresser, wins praise for the ‘high standards and superb attention to detail’ at his stylish, modern B&B, in a Georgian mansion down the road from Williamson Park. Arrive to drinks and home-baked nibbles, then explore the house: there are homely touches (and clever style ideas to borrow) throughout. Bedrooms have individual charm – perhaps tall wooden shutters or an enormous roll-top bath; each has a bathroom with underfloor heating, bathrobes and chic toiletries. Simple, deli-style suppers (locally sourced meat, fish, cheese, chutneys, home-baked bread; order in advance) may be taken in the dining room or bedroom. Breakfast has a generous supply of fresh muffins and fruit salad; the garden hens provide the eggs. 1 mile E of city centre.|bedrooms 5. 1 on ground floor. open All year except 24–26 Dec, 31 Dec, 1 Jan. facilities Lounge, dining room, free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview), 1-acre garden, parking. background music In dining room. children Not under 6. dogs Allowed in 1 bedroom, public rooms. prices Per room B&B £110–£180.
