Good Hotel Guide Review
On the edge of the Old Town, designer Lionel Copley has created a beautiful B&B in this Grade II listed Georgian-cum-Victorian rectory. A palette of muted blues and greys, stripped and varnished floors and artistic flower arrangements could be straight out of an interiors magazine, with ‘paintings, sculptures and hand-painted wallpapers by local artists integrated into the decor’, but everywhere a sense of fun is apparent. Ebenezer bedroom has a wall of Wedgwood calendar plates, while Crown has a ‘secret’ loo behind a bookcase, and a freestanding in-room bath. Some rooms have a bathroom and separate wet room. Those at the back overlook a lovely walled garden. All come with milk, home-made biscuits, ‘Made by the Sea’ toiletries, produced by Mr Copley, co-owner of Swan House, Hastings (see next entry). ‘Guests are encouraged to use the beautiful lounges, which have an honesty bar, and an open fire for cold days.’ A breakfast of ‘high-quality, local ingredients’ has ‘terrific variety’ – home-made muesli, home-baked bread, fruit smoothie, home-cured bacon, kippers with parsley butter, mushroom and parsley omelette. Luxurious treatment rooms have been added since last year. (A and BB)
