Good Hotel Guide Review

Vintage furnishings mix with contemporary local art, trompe l’oeil touches surprise above stripped wooden floors… ‘it’s altogether delightful’ at this ‘friendly, beautifully kept’ B&B ‘in an excellent location for walking into the historic Old Town’. Lionel Copley, the owner, also co-owns Swan House (see next entry); manager Tracey-Anne Cook is ‘gracious, professional, helpful’. Public spaces are stylish – outré, say some guests – while the bedrooms are highly individual: choose Tackleway for the garden views through a large picture window; in Crown, find the loo hidden behind a bookcase. In every room, teas, good coffee and a home-made sweet treat are provided; a carafe of water is set by ‘the most comfortable bed’. (Some rooms overlook the road – it’s ‘completely quiet at night’, but you might find yourself waving to the bus queue in the morning.) The ‘impeccably maintained’ walled garden is a fine place to sit. Five minutes’ walk away, ‘we loved the First In Last Out pub for dinner’. Breakfast is ‘super’: much is home made (from bread to sausages); most everything else is locally procured. (Diana Goodey, A and BB)

Guest comments

'The nicest B&B we've stayed in. Our room was spacious with plenty of light, and very quiet at night. They are rightly proud of their breakfasts -- ingredients are of high quality. The breakfast room opens on to an impeccably maintained garden where guests re encouraged to stroll. ' - Anna and Bill Brewer - June, 2016
