This hip hotel sprawls through eight Georgian houses, with stripped-wood floors, clubby leather armchairs, and a purple billiard table setting the tone. Bedrooms, all spacious and modern, are in shades of beige or gray and some have views of the Stray. The bathrooms have deep tubs and powerful showers, and further pampering is available at the in-house spa. The bar is a serious place to drink good wine, and the popular bistro uses locally sourced meats and fish in French-influenced
takes on classics like lamb with lentils and wild mushrooms, or haddock fish cakes with poached eggs.
