Good Hotel Guide Review

Owners Carla and Andrew Brooks have made a foray into the country (see entry for Brooks Country House, Ross-on-Wye), but everything ticks over nicely back at their ‘impressive’ city B&B. It occupies a converted 1960s office block in the old town, by St Nicholas market, a stroll from the harbour with its waterside eateries. The unfussy style mixes bare floorboards with leather sofas, moulded plastic chairs, an honesty bar. Bedrooms have controllable heating, shutters, efficient bathroom, hospitality tray, wine glasses, a Roberts radio. Some overlook the Mediterranean-style courtyard. A novel option, especially fun for children, is to take one of the Airstream camper vans on the Astroturf-covered roof. One, sleeping four, had ‘a good-size double bed’, two small singles, good bedding and towels, a powerful shower, ‘great lighting including colour-changing strips’. When the seagulls sound reveille it is time for breakfast in the open-plan kitchen, including organic yogurts, ‘lovely jams, marmalade and juices’, home-made granola, fruit compote, the full English, bacon butties, smoked-salmon bagels. ‘The staff were very friendly, taking time to ask the children how they liked staying on the roof.’ It was ‘very good value’.

Guest comments

'We thought £109 for our family of four was good value. It's such a great location. We stayed in a beautifully sleek and shiny 20-foot airstream camper van on the roof. It had a good-size double bed and two small singles. Very comfortably done up. We were advised not to stay on a Friday or Saturday night if we wanted to avoid being woken by partiers. It was beautifully quiet all night but in the morning the seagulls were pretty noisy, Excellent breakfast - cooked in open-plan kitchen in spacious and friendly-feeling downstairs room. The staff were very friendly. ' - AR - April, 2016
