Witty and fun, this little guest house is an offbeat gem.

Take one Victorian terraced house, add a dollop of 1950s quirkiness, 1960s kitsch, 1970s cool and 21st-century street cred, shake well, et voilà – welcome to Snooze. I love everything about this wacky boutique b&b – it’s imaginative, beautifully presented and delightfully tongue-in-cheek, just like Kemptown itself.

Location

It’s on a quiet side-street in the most villagey part of Kemptown, with the beach within easy walking distance. If you want to have a go at stealing Snooze’s signature retro-chic style, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in the many bric-à-brac and homeware shops on nearby St George’s Road and Upper St James Street.

Bedrooms

Each of the eight rooms is a one-off hotchpotch of vintage finds – a leather chair or trio of flying ducks here, a floral basin or psychedelic cushion there. One room has a wall papered with Edwardian nude photos, another is a riot of cheesy Indian adverts and bright, Bollywood colours. There’s free WiFi throughout.

Public areas

The stairs, the landings and the dining room are decorated with more oddments such as framed record sleeves and old enamel signs, while graffiti art jumps off the dining room ceiling and the garden walls.

Eating and drinking

Breakfast, served in the supremely groovy dining room, is well worth surfacing for, but if you reckon you deserve a duvet day then the staff will be happy to rustle up breakfast in bed.

Service

The staff are efficient and friendly.

Who stays there

Style-conscious travellers. No cats, dogs, hens or stags allowed.
