The trend for hotels still seems to be dark and moody. And done well it's a very good look for a hotel. Recently we stayed in the Brooklands Hotel in Weybridge and they do the dark and moody look well. Much better than the hotel I stayed in once that did dark so well that I needed to use the torch on my iPhone to check that I'd not left anything in the wardrobe.
I knew we were in for a treat when I looked up and spotted this sculptural light.
And when I say there's something about a hotel room, I mean luxury. And comfort. And often a whopping great big bed.
And this room was no different. The fresh linen. The big bed. So big that I managed to lose my phone in the middle of it and neither MOH or I slept on it all night. Bliss.
And there's always a desk isn't there?
And often a standard lamp. This one was great and had the look of giant bubble wrap according to MOH. He doesn't get out much, but I can kind of see what he means.
And the bathroom. That excelled at dark and moody, but also sparkling too. A nice large sink, a huge mirror, toiletries that made me smile.
And a stunning shower. This I would happily have at home.
It's the excitement isn't it. Of hotel rooms. To see what you've been allocated. To see its decor. To see if that matches up to the style of the public areas. And this one did, and more.
