This may be Kit Kemp’s most affordable hotel but there’s no slacking in the typical Firmdale hotel style stakes – witness the fresh flowers and origami-ed bird-book decorations in the comfortable drawing room. Bedrooms are generously sized, bright and very light, and carry the Kemp trademark mix of bold and traditional. The whole place has an appealing freshness about it, enhanced by a large, tree-filled back garden complete with a central water feature. By the time you finish breakfast in the pretty conservatory, you’ll have forgotten you’re in the middle of the city.
