Something a bit different in the South-West

In a city known for its chintzy and expensive hotels, The Halcyon is "a breath of fresh air", says Lucinda Baring in The Independent.

Housed in a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse revamped by a new owner last year, it is both "stylish" and affordable, with rooms from just £99.

The décor is in standard boutique-hotel style, with "subtle palettes offset by brilliant bursts of colour"; but original panelling and cornicing adds some real character.
