The Staunton is an admirable, welcoming, small B&B. Although it’s situated in a pair of 230-year-old town houses on the corner of two loud streets (Store and Gower), windows have been double-glazed and adorned with treatments, which tamps down a bit on aural clutter. Well-appointed rooms also have safes, and AC, which is uncommon in Georgian-era buildings like these, but no lift, which is. We imagine the owners charge more than the B&B average because rooms are ever slightly larger-than-usual, as well as for the formidable location within walking distance of the entire West End.
