Dressed to Impress from Bed to Breakfast

The best boutique B&B's at home and overseas

Discover a flawless union of luxury, style and service when you stay in one of Unique Home Stay’s boutique B&B’s. We believe that a first-class B&B has to be dressed to impress from its bed to its breakfast, and everything in between. Lavish creature comforts, mouthwatering cuisine and superlative service are guaranteed, but that’s just for starters; you can also expect extraordinary architecture, stunning locations and warm hosts that will welcome you into their immaculate homes. So how about a weekend in a water tower, a palatial suite in a county manor, or a chic place to stay in the heart of London or Marrakech? Whatever your tastes, we promise you a stylish pad decked out for comfort, where you can rest overnight or relax for days.

Order breakfast to be enjoyed in your swanky en suite double with its own lounge and private access, or venture downstairs to checkout the rest of this multi award-winning contemporary home that fuses history with ultra modern design.
