by: Zoe Buckman    |    www.zoebuckman.com

  • Why:

    City break with the girls

  • When:

    April 2013

  • Who:

    Me and my two best mates

Important Bits

  • Type:

    Boutique Hotel within a palace built in the 1800’s.

  • Rooms:

    10 rooms. They also have apartments for longer stays.

  • Pool/Gym:

    No pool or gym.

  • Restaurant:

    They do breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea, but if you want dinner you have to book a private chef to cook you a bespoke supper.

  • Bar:

    Yes…a well-stocked honesty bar. No bar “scene”.

  • Year Opened:

    2009

  • Wifi:

    Yes.

  • Vibe:

    Old architecture and antiques mixed with kooky modern pieces.

  • Music:

    No music, just the creak of the wooden floorboards.

  • Children:

    We chose not to bring ours-- it was kind of the point of our trip, but I’m sure they would have been welcome.

  • Location:

    Centrally located but on a sweet, quiet street.

  • Designed By:

    The hotel designed its spaces with their own in-house design team.

  • Best Way to Book:
  • Price:

    Surprisingly reasonable. We couldn’t believe what we paid for such a huge, stunning room.

Highs + Lows

  • You feel as if you’ve stepped into a time warp but without the musty smell and dankness that really old hotels can have.

  • It’s charming but not without irony—I think the design team have a healthy sense of kitschy humour, which I love.

  • The natural light is incredible.

  • An amazing, reasonable spa in the hotel would have been incredible!...especially as my friend was 5 months pregnant at the time of our stay.
