Stay at this gorgeous townhouse-bistro at the top of Catherine Street in the pretty market town of Frome and enjoy the cosiest bedrooms with sumptuous beds and fabulous showers. It's a warm and welcoming space where ten bedrooms are set above a lively bistro and bar, serving classic French cuisine from an open kitchen along with low intervention wines and a selection of well thought-through cocktails. Think bare wooden floors and low lighting with original art adorning the walls - it's the kind of inviting space you will want to return to, not just for the delicious food, but for the vibrant and friendly atmosphere. A comfortable base to explore Frome with a French influence at the heart, owner Lotte and her friendly team will ensure you are well looked after from the minute you step inside.

It's well worth the short drive to Bruton, home of Hauser and Wirth, a Swiss contemporary art gallery, restaurant, farm shop and the beautiful landscaped Piet Oudolf gardens.

Frome is a pretty market town, with medieval streets leading to independent shops and culinary delights.

Style & Character

It's a great spot for couples and larger parties of family and friends with its buzzy atmosphere, as well as anyone after a comfortable base to explore Frome. We loved the joyful and warm ambience in the bistro, alive with chatter and the chinking of glasses - a celebration of classic French cuisine!

Dine in the bar on a Sunday and be transported to Paris with steak frites and a carafe of house red.

The King Double Room (room 7) is a cosy space with calming blue walls and a stupendously comfy bed with soft pink headboard, looking out across the chimney tops of Frome. What's not to love about simple homely comfort - the kind of blissful space that's designed to curl up and relax in after a day of exploring.
