You know when you break up a relationship and you go 'it's not you. it's me' and you actually mean it. Well that's how I feel about the Escape B&B. I should like it's friendly welcome, it's cleanliness, it's attention to detail, comfy beds and a lovely breakfast and I do, but there's one massive flaw that gave me the heebie jeebies and would have had me running for the hills after one night.
Imagine turning up to Heston Blumenthal's restaurant and being presented with a dish made of bulls testicles if you will. No matter what the skill had gone into it's preparation, the exquisite attention to detail in the cooking and the flamboyance of the presentation I dunno about you but I'd be going home hungry. That's how I feel about the Escape.
I took a photo of the problem for you to look at. It's the bathroom... or rather the bath nook or cranny or bathbedroom. Not quite sure how you describe this but having a bath in the bedroom albeit on a platform felt wierd. I don't want to see my partner in the bath and quite honestly I think that she'd feel the same about me. Personally I want a shower but this has one of those shower heads on a flexible hose and I was nervous about spraying water all over the decor. Not good.I hated it.
So Breakfast was lovely, well served by lovely cheerful waitresses and the owners were very pleasant but I hated the bathroom and I wanted a shower.
It's a boutique hotel and therefore likely to be quirky. I lik.e quirky. If I went to the Fat Duck I'd want wierd and bizarre...... but I'd still not eat bulls balls. And to be honest no one ever reads the three star ratings anyway but at least you if you're happy with the bathroom in the picture there's no reason why you shouldn't book this.This really is one of those occasions when 'it's not you. it's me' works perfectly
