Fodor's Review

No. 16 Queen Street was originally a Victorian merchant's family town home built to Georgian proportions, then a rectory and bank, before Joan Pyne turned it into the city's grandest B&B—garnet-color walls, elaborate plasterwork, and a fireplace make the parlor warm and welcoming. The cellars have been renovated to include three en suite modern bedrooms. Joan also owns a similar but smaller building three minutes' walk away called the Saddler's House. Charming and cozy, this Victorian jewel of a home (who can resist its picture-gallery red living room?) is packed with antiques and family portraits. Self-catering is also available at delightfully renovated Georgian town houses on Pump Street and London Street.
