“Fabulous location, welcoming host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2008

Prospect House is run by Eric who is very likeable, welcoming and looked after us very well. He went out of his way to advise us on our forthcoming trips, giving us useful tips.

The renovations and fit out of the rooms was typically Victorian - as described. Our room (named Madeleine) was lovely - clean and comfortable.

The lounge accommodated a Steinway grand and a Steinart baby grand piano!

Breakfast was good and set us up until lunch.

All in all, we couldn't find fault here, the location is great, very central and close to transport links. Highly recommended and we hope to return again in the future.
