Our favourite rooms
In the Junior Suites, you’ll find a raw-concrete and light-wood ensuite bathroom with a double-rainfall shower; talk about washing your troubles away. Natural light-filled Room 2, a Deluxe Suite, also has a standalone bath tub in the bedroom and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Take a cue from the hotel’s decor and pack your Wes Anderson-inspired best: think pink 1960s shift dresses or something with a hint of paisley (perhaps even a boy scout badge if you’re going all-out).
The hotel’s public areas are all accessible, and Room 8 has been specially adapted for wheelchair users.
Over-eights are welcome, but not particularly catered to.
The hotel recycles, uses seasonal and organic food, and offers Brompton cycles to hire.
