Brooks Guesthouse – Bath
Part of Andrew and Carla Brooks’ portfolio of boutique B&Bs, which includes a Bristol guesthouse and hotels in Edinburgh and Herefordshire, this double-fronted villa is set back from the road, with a magnificent magnolia outside and a colourful interior. Away from the bustling centre, it’s still within strolling distance of the sights. At its heart is the personal touch. If you want for anything, hands-on manager Magdalena will see to it. There are newspapers and stacks of leaflets in the cosy sitting room, where a coal fire glows in winter and you can unwind with a drink from the basement honesty bar. Breakfast is served in the airy room next to it, where locally sourced food is skilfully prepared in an open-to-view kitchen. Upstairs, 22 distinctive, well-equipped bedrooms offer an eclectic mix of furniture and sleek bathrooms. You’ll be hard pushed to find a better value base in Bath.
