The Rooms

With only ten rooms nothing at Rick’s needs to be mass produced. The feel is cosy, with dark hues, walnut headboards and angora and lambs’ wool blankets. Rick’s rooms provide a sanctuary from the bustling city outside with an indulgent, uber cool vibe. Custom made furniture, pre-loaded ipod, hair straighteners; the clever Rick’s folk have gone to great lengths to ensure you have an utterly memorable and luxurious stay.

The Rest

Blending effortless cool with exceptional comfort Rick’s provides the perfect place to stay slap bang in the centre of town. The chic restaurant serves up breakfast, lunch, dinner and bar food either indoors or on their covered terrace and the bar makes a mean cocktail. If you’re tempted to eat here we recommend you take advantage of their exceptional dinner and bed and breakfast packages at the point of booking.
