Starting from the top, you can spend an entire afternoon lazing around the stripy rooftop pool lounge.
Come down a level to the 6th floor and a whole urban chic playground opens up to you with its restaurant, club bar, drawing room, The Pantry Bar (a cheese and meat counter) and games room.
On the 3rd floor you’re invited to indulge and rejuvenate in Cowshed Spa, especially handy if you have an invitation later that evening to one of the events that take place on the 4th and 5th floor – in the Club Room (adjacent to a private screening room) or the The Library.
The handcrafted rooms seem to have been set like a scene to show off a single wow-factor feature – be it an ornamental bed, exposed brick wall, beamed ceiling or an eye catching piece of art.
The class system defines the hotel accommodation pretty clearly – you can pick a room that is Small, Medium, Big, and Large. But it’s not just about the square footage. Extra space clearly provides more canvass and so the playfulness of the design increases accordingly with each room category.
