This place is unique! Forget the typical b and b, this is something else entirely.
What service.! Firstly, I got lost, and ended up walking past it, to the top of the hill. Lydia jumped in the car and picked me up: good start!
The house is a family home, no formality at all, just a warm welcome.
The guest room is on the top floor, with a huge bathroom next door. Warm, very clean, shabby chic, lovely. No bland, corporate look..
The bed......Fluffy duvet and pillows, beautiful white bed linen. I can honestly say that it gave me the best nights sleep ever.
Breakfast was delicious, mango, kiwi, pomegranate, yoghurt, local honey, bread, eggs for those who want them, croissants etc.
Lydia set the table, then left it to me to choose when to have my breakfast: no pressure.
I can 100% recommend Telegraph Hill.
