Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘a great location’ in the old city centre, a stroll from harbourside restaurants, Carla and Andrew Brooks have converted a 1960s office block into a contemporary B&B with a difference. ‘Beautifully sleek and shiny’ Airstream camper vans are parked on the AstroTurfed roof. Each has controllable heating, a hospitality tray and retro radio, a small bathroom and bird’s-eye views over the town: ‘very clever and cool.’ (There’s birdsong, too – guests may wake to gulls calling.) ‘We stayed with our children in the largest caravan, comfortably done up with a double bed and two small singles. In the bathroom were a strong shower and lots of fluffy towels.’ Visitors looking for more conventional accommodation find it in neat, modern bedrooms below. Mornings, an ‘excellent breakfast’ is taken in the ‘friendly-feeling’ open-plan kitchen. Besides organic yogurts, home-made muesli and granola, and ‘lovely jams, marmalade and juices’, ‘great cooked options’ (perhaps French toast, egg dishes, a full English) are ‘efficiently served’. ‘Grab-and-go’ breakfasts are a bonus – ask for a smoked salmon bagel or a sausage sandwich before rushing off.

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
