Patrick treated us to a night’s stay last weekend for my birthday and I was very happy with our experience there.
Check-in is 3pm, so if like us you are a little early why not take a leaf out of our book and order a delicious cocktail, sit outside and chill. These elderflower based martini’s were gorgeous and the seating area outside the hotel was quite chilled so we returned there later in the evening too.
We were more than happy with our room. It had that stylish minimalistic feel to it but yet it was warm and inviting.
The bed was a fine size and so comfortable … do not lie down on yours before you go out as you risk not leaving it!
The room had a secret minibar, iPod or iPhone docking station, flat screen T.V. and free wireless, as well as all the usual stuff that you’d expect like hair dryer, ironing board, safe, robes and slippers. What more could you ask for? … how about a sexy sleek bathroom with a bath that comfortably fits two (just saying) and a walk-in shower that could fit a small family? … DONE!
