Lamppost Villa is extremely convenient, a 6 minute walk to the centre, with a bus stop outside.
This Victorian house is no oil painting and reminded me of a small seaside B&B in Blackpool. Our twin room was compact, with pretty basic furnishing, with NVQ level 1 decor. OK beds, heating and hot water. Breakfast was fine, with cereals, eggs, sausage and bacon and unlimited toast. No complaints from me. But no yoghurt, which perplexed some German visitors. (whom David tried to help get to Bristol by bus, as it was much cheaper than by the train they were planning).
Over 4 days we had no problems. David seemed pretty willing, replacing a couple of light bulbs when asked and producing marmalade on request....but shouldn't it have been on the table in the first place?
Nice touch was the use of a hotel parking permit, valid for the local area, so one could park pretty close to the centre, assuming you could find a resident's slot.
Reading TA, it must be murder trying to keep guests satisfied, especially if they expect 5 star accomodation at 3 star prices. Having said that, owner/managers might do worse that walk around their property and see it from a visitor's perspective. After all, following the breakfast rush, there should be time until the afternoon check in.......
Lampost Villa took us for 4 nights at short notice, moving guests so we didn't have to.
Doubtless, there are better appointed B&B's, and more expesive,but we didn't have time to search for one !
