Pop princess waves her wand on to the bed-and-breakfast business
It’s a boast that would be disputed by some of the the pension owners of Bloomsbury. Owner Annette Russell sets out to justify it by saying: “In Brooklyn, New York; Berlin and Barcelona the upmarket bed-and-breakfast has proven perfect for open-minded travellers who want to avoid the tourist traps and meet like-minded people, without sacrificing comfort or convenience.”
All of the five bedrooms in the Victorian former family house offer antique furniture, wooden floors and private or en suite bathroomd. Rates reflect the touches of luxury: from £65 to £95 a night.
