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.

Important Bits

  • Type

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

  • Vibe

    Old architecture and antiques mixed with kooky modern pieces.

  • Location

    Centrally located but on a sweet, quiet street.

  • Rooms

    10 rooms. They also have apartments for longer stays.

  • Music

    No music, just the creak of the wooden floorboards.

  • Year Opened

    2009

  • Designed By

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

  • Health & Wellness

    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”.

  • 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.

  • Price

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