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’.
