Good Hotel Guide Review
Watched over by a 150-year-old lighthouse, this coastal spot inspired Samuel Taylor Coleridge; his Ancient Mariner is commemorated with a statue on the harbour. Any entrapment in Jason Robinson’s bijou B&B is of an altogether indulgent sort. The 18th-century house and shop in the town centre has a stylish verve, with an inviting mix of slate floors, soft velvet and warm wood. In each chic bedroom, a king-size bed stands under a mural of an Old Master painting; thoughtful extras abound: waffle bathrobes, fluffy towels, chic toiletries, an iron and ironing board, a safe; 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. A light charcuterie supper can be arranged.
