The Rooms

This 2 bedroom, immaculately designed Georgian apartment will make you feel like you’re staying in your own country house in the middle of the city. Both rooms have king size beds but only one is en suite. Thoughtfully included linens, towels, soaps and hairdressers fill these calming, artistic and enveloping rooms bathed in outside light.

Inviting, well equipped kitchen, working gas fire and flat screen TV will tempt you to retreat indoors before wandering to nearby Broughton Street for a vibrant night out.
