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.
