Arrive at MADE and my footwear matches the branding!

Wood is everywhere at MADE (much of it is reclaimed walnut). Just look at this ceiling, it’s angles and edges, and the lighting!

Ben is hard to please at breakfast, he’s a savory kinda guy, so this jalapeno croissant was MADE for him! (see what I did there?!)

LOVED our balcony with incredible views, it was early March though and totally freezing, kept warm with a hot chocolate and beanie!

Brass fittings, more angles and a window onto the balcony, why not?!

We completely loved Ferris - the cocktails, food and service.


More angles in the bedroom, floating bed, wooden floor, exposed concrete ceiling and denim style furnishings.

Our suite was super spacious and comfy.

Great mini bar, gotta love a jar of peanuts, always.

Good Behavior…or not.

Wardrobe for those with a lack of space, and desk that could be hooked down…clever!

Highs & Lows

  • There’s something so comforting and beautiful about the wood at MADE. There’s a warmth you don’t get with other materials, and they’ve used it so cleverly on the ground floor in particular - it’s stunning.

  • The coffee shop and the jalapeno croissants, too addictive!

  • Ferris! Love, love, love!
