First impressions of SSB were excellent. Very welcoming hosts who had gone to the trouble of getting me some unsweetened soya milk. The room we stayed in was furnished with some lovely reproduction furniture and you can see the style of rooms on their website. Downside was that we had not realised that none of the bedrooms had en suite facilities (our fault for not checking) so that there was one bathroom with a basin, toilet and bath, one separate shower room and another separate toilet with no basin. These facilities were shared amongst the 2 double bedrooms and one single on the first floor. We were fortunate that no one else was staying otherwise you would have to figure out a rota in the mornings with the other occupants about how to wash your hands after using the toilet if the bathroom was occupied. More worryingly for me however was that there were no smoke alarms either in the downstairs hallway or the upstairs landing or in our bedroom. In addition the only windows that opened in our bedroom were two small top windows for ventilation. In the event of a fire we would have no warning and no means of escape.
