Good Hotel Guide Review

Tucked into streets behind the harbour, this ‘achingly cool’ 17th-century house has ‘lovely staff’, ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ and ‘tasty breakfasts’. Typical of Justin and Charlotte Salisbury’s eclectic collection (see main entries for Artist Residence in London and in Brighton), it brims with ‘intriguing artworks’ and vintage flourishes. Bedrooms, mildly eccentric, are all different: one is small; another has expansive views; a third, a hand-painted mural soaring up the walls and across the ceiling. Whatever their angle, each is ‘clean, comfortable’, and has a Roberts radio, Nespresso machine, mini-fridge of local goodies, organic Bramley toiletries. Informal meals draw diners to the ‘quirky’ Cornish Barn restaurant/bar/smokehouse, perhaps ‘truly stupendous beer-can-smoked chicken’. Breakfast is ‘first-rate’.

Guest comments

'Very nice staff. Very comfortable. The bedroom was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was modern (everying served in doorsteps of sourdough bread): mashed avocado, eggs Benedict, etc), but took an age to come. But first-rate orange juice. ' - AT - Apr, 2017
