Brooklyn Arts Hotel is EXACTLY as described on its website, so if that is what you're looking for, that is what you will indeed get. It's relaxed, comfortable, interesting and beautiful. The back garden is a joy. The big dining room table welcomes you at any time of day for a tea, a coffee, a piece of fruit or a biscuit and a read of the papers. The laundry is hung out in the fresh air on ingeniously arranged clotheslines at the back. The house runs like clockwork relative to the changing temperatures and weather: cool on the inside all the time despite record hot days while we were there. Staff are welcoming, calmly accommodating and professional. Breakfast is a shared pleasure among pleasant and interesting fellow-travellers oftentimes including owner Maggie. Thanks Maggie for a lovely week!
