Let’s take a walk through the bar and restaurant first. Lashings of gold, heavy chandeliers, ornamental furniture and mirrors everywhere, you’d almost think this is some kind of a very up market Edwardian house of ill repute. The seductive gothic ambience permeating through the hotel lightens up considerably in the sun drenched terrace filled with haphazardly placed tables and chairs around a pool with a hot tub.
As for the bedrooms, no suite resembles the next but they all share a common quality of designer furniture, quirky decor, and fantastic shiny copper bath tubs. Townhouse rooms are a little more tame compared to the wild spirited suites in the stable block.
