The 25 Boutique B&B
Andy and Julian have worked hard to this transform this establishment from the relatively mainstream to the exceptional, and continue to work tirelessly to create a unique guest experience. Their attention to detail is exacting, exemplified by colour matched Nespresso machines in bedrooms, such touches add to the whole, guests staying here will no doubt feel special and appreciated, never taken for granted.
Bedrooms have great personality and individuality, and quirky touches are used judiciously to add a touch of flamboyance and put a smile on the face, but never at the expense of comfort, ease of use or practicality. Each have a sense of identity, self-worth and swagger, almost vying for attention and eager to please. Sumptuous comfort and quality with excellent finishing touches, each room bearing the trademark of Andy and Julian’s search for perfection. There can be a danger of self-indulgence, bedrooms becoming too theatrical, but here, the balance is perfectly achieved with quality, comfort and character, melded seamlessly.
