(PART OF A PRIZE WON)
Walking into this hotel was intimidating! Though our faces must have said it all - we had won a nights accommodation at this lovely hotel. Remember the scene in Pretty Woman (credits to all rights belonging to film) where Julia Roberts' character walks into the hotel with Richard Gere's character putting on the jacket/coat for the first time! WOW.
Immediately the staff (bell hops: I think) were asking if we needed assistance and helping us find our way. The counter lady was a little off putting to start with - but also done her job. This lady had to seek assistance from another lady behind the reception desk who helped us with our booking.
The room was very nice; clean; tidy; fresh smelling even. It was indulgence at its highest.
There was a study table area. which was situated opposite the front door. between the front door and the lounge area was a divider for privacy.
The lounge comfortably seated three chairs, coffee table and tv suite unit.
Toward the back of the suite - there was a full size ensuite style bathroom and massive bedroom which had its own television, and cupboards.
The bed. The most important part of any stay- the bed! OH MY GOSH! If you could pack the mattress in to your suitcase it would been done!
To sleep on that mattress was absolute heaven. Unless we're sick we don't sleep in the middle of a day let alone a trip - but we had an hour to relax before having to get ready to go out and so we decided to watch a movie or part thereof; both of us were woken by the reminder alarm set on our phone so we both knew - no matter where we were that we had to get ready now-. . . it was unexpected and so comfortable.
Laying on this bed it felt like having every arch, nook and crest in your body filled in with a sponge.
And while we were out - our room was re made up for us.
And a lovely note was left for us.
Easy check in (in the situation that we had won this accommodation as a part of a prize) and easier check out .
Again the bell hops were very happy to help us.
