Guest accommodation in a listed building.

The elegant Georgian part of town isn’t overrun with accommodation, and I like Roscoe House for its great address and combination of beautiful features (it’s a listed building, once home to the writer William Roscoe) and antique furniture. It’s not necessarily the luxury option, though: some bits are pretty basic. The company also has some other apartments off-site, which is where the hens and stags tend to stay.

Location

It's on Rodney Street, near the University and easy for Hope Street, the Phil and the theatres, Chinatown and the RopeWalks.

Bedrooms

There are 11 rooms and four studio apartments, including a couple which are suitable for pets. The kitchens in these aren’t anything special, but they do the job. It’s the period details and antique furniture, jumbled together with more prosaic modern stuff, which I think give Roscoe House its character. Rooms are spread over three floors and there’s no lift, so ask if you need to be on the ground floor.

Public areas

Just the elegant halls, although it's hoped that the garden at the back will be opened up in time.

Eating and drinking

If you have one of the rooms with kitchens, you can make your own; otherwise a continental breakfast can be brought to your room.

Service

Cheery and very willing, but there aren’t a lot of staff.

Who stays there

Visitors who want to be near the University or amid the Georgian terraces up here on the hill; groups and people looking for room-only deals; pet lovers.
