Good Hotel Guide Review
When readers tell us that Andy and Julian Banner-Price’s award-winning, adults-only B&B would knock the spots off many a more prestigious hotel, we take notice. Certainly it deserves promotion to a full entry, for attention to detail and sheer exuberance. A rainbow-striped male mannequin floor lamp in reception sets the tone. Among the ‘unbelievably stylish’ bedrooms, ground-floor Torre has zebra stripes, Oddicombe a giant gerbera mural, and Broadsands a slipper bath and power shower. A fluffy swan in a coronet, apparently named Simon, graces a wall in the sitting room of newly revamped Shoalstone, with its theatre lighting and huge rain shower head. Extras include smart controls, mood lighting, a coffee machine, a fridge, home-made treats and Elemis toiletries. The comfy drawing room surprises by being so in keeping with the house’s Edwardian origins. The hosts ‘go out of their way to be helpful’. Guests are plied with cake on arrival, and the breakfast menu is ‘worthy of a five-star hotel’, with free-range eggs, locally farmed pork sausages, kippers, smoked salmon, or the full Devon. Fawltless Towers.
