City break with the girls
Me and my two best mates
Sweet little courtyard outside our room,
good for a smoke or another cup of tea.
Sooo weird we found this bag in our room!
My view...complete with best mate.
I can't tell you what the words mean
but it's a nice idea for a bedside table.
Bedside table in second bedroom.
Gorgeous stairway and a daily reminder that none
of us are as fit as we think we are.
Breakfast in the main house, included in your room rate.
A nice sunlit place to sit and plan your day.
Beautiful walkway connecting the restaurant to some guest rooms.
Honesty bar, where you make your own drink and write down what you had, or don't and feel really guilty.
This rolling bar cart is one of those things
i probably don't need but wish i had.
Our stunning old 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.

Boutique Hotel within a palace built in the 1800’s.
Old architecture and antiques mixed with kooky modern pieces.
Centrally located but on a sweet, quiet street.
10 rooms. They also have apartments for longer stays.
No music, just the creak of the wooden floorboards.
- Year Opened
- Designed By
The hotel designed its spaces with their own in-house design team.
No pool or gym.
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.
Yes…a well-stocked honesty bar. No bar “scene”.
We chose not to bring ours-- it was kind of the point of our trip, but I’m sure they would have been welcome.
Surprisingly reasonable. We couldn’t believe what we paid for such a huge, stunning room.

Dine at Boscolo New York Palace

There’s nothing New York about it—it dates back to 1894 and has more glitzy gilding than I’ve ever seen before!
