The Beaumonde has the ambience and hospitality of a guesthouse, but the services of a hotel. This large former family house is spread over six floors with winding stairs and internal balconies that make it interesting to wander around. One alcove is lined with books and has a large armchair nestling in the corner, in the basement there is a pool table and on the roof, a large terrace. There is no lift, so anyone with mobility issues should request a room on the lower floors. Several of the rooms, particularly those on the upper floors, have sweeping views over the city. Despite being centrally heated, many of the rooms also have their own fireplace, ideal for settling beside with a glass of Georgian wine on a cold winter’s night. Other facilities include a large lounge with fireplace, a breakfast room and a small business area. The décor is homely and relaxed – the owner’s wife is an artist and the artworks on the walls were either painted or selected by her.
