Good Hotel Guide Review
Watched over by a 150-year-old lighthouse, the coastal spot that inspired Coleridge bears the statue of the ancient mariner; but, just up from the famous harbour, Jason Robinson’s bijou B&B has more youthful appeal. The 18th-century town house and shop has a stylish verve, with an inviting mix of slate floors, soft velvet and warm wood. In each of the chic bedrooms, a king-size bed stands under a mural of an Old Master painting; thoughtful extras abound: waffle bathrobes, fluffy towels, chic toiletries; a roll-top slipper bath and separate walk-in shower in the bathroom. Breakfast has a range of home-cooked dishes, including a full veggie option. Evenings, a light charcuterie supper can be arranged.
