Because this prototypical town house B&B began as two hotels that were conjoined in the 1990s, you’ll sometimes see it called the Luna & Simone. Although it’s a protected building with old metalwork on the banisters and oddly sized guest rooms, the owners have taken pains to keep up by way of fresh, inexpensive furniture and modernist prints. Its two large morning rooms, done up like a diner, have a weird undulating blue ceiling that makes scooping your cereal feel a bit like doing the backstroke (and eat quickly—the English breakfast ends early, at 9am). Everything is in excellent nick, which is a surprise when you consider that the owners have been at it since 1970. There’s no lift, but also no sharing of bathrooms.
