Good Hotel Guide Review
‘All kinds of interesting art and quirky touches’ bring cheer to this lively modern hotel, which sprawls across three Georgian town houses on busy North Parade. It is owned by Bath hoteliers Christa and Ian Taylor, whose No. 15 Great Pulteney and Villa at Henrietta Park (see main and Shortlist entries) share the same flair. Andrew Foulkes manages ‘upbeat, super-friendly’ staff. ‘Down hallways, round corners, up and down short flights of stairs’, recently refurbished bedrooms of varying sizes (some have easier lift access) are well supplied with ‘posh toiletries and thick, soft towels’; ‘excellent bedside lights by a comfortable bed’; current magazines and an iPad loaded with local information. Discuss room choices before booking: a rear room was thought ‘blissfully quiet’; one overlooking the main road had late-night noise from weekend partygoers. In the ‘smartly decorated’ restaurant, chef Rupert Taylor’s modern dishes – perhaps pan-fried stone bass, Jerusalem artichokes, herb gnocchi – are ‘delicious’. The morning meal is ‘exemplary’, with ‘a fine buffet spread’ and a cooked-breakfast menu of ‘all the classics’. (Carol and Geoffrey Jackson, and others)
