All our bedrooms have Tivoli radios and digital televisions with built-in DVD – our DVD library is extensive and up to date. Please be aware, though, that we do not subscribe to Sky.
As well as towels, we put face flannels in the bathrooms. Our wonderful grapefruit soap (a big bar for the bath, smaller bar for the handbasin), shampoo and shower gel come from Arran Aromatics. While we do not put hair conditioner or body lotion in the rooms – as we believe most people pack their own favourite brands – just ask reception if you need some. Emergency supplies of stuff like shaving foam, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant etc. are also available on request.
Tea making facilities are provided, together with a little flask of fresh milk, ‘fresh’ coffee and a range of London Tea Company teas. A bottle of freshly filtered water is also provided in all the rooms.
Paints are from the Little Greene Paint Company; most furniture is from B&B Italia, Graham and Green, Heals, Ikea or the Conran Shop; fabrics are from Osborne and Little or Romo; beds are supplied by Hypnos and Vi-spring; all rooms have Anglepoise lights on each side of the bed, for comfortable reading or a softer, ambient light if turned to the wall; bathroom fittings are mainly Duravit and Dornbracht with a sprinkling (sic) of Starck, Roca and Laufen.
Soft furnishings, e.g. curtains and fabric blinds are made by the English Curtain company in Bury St Edmunds; headboards are from Headboards-Interiors and privacy blinds are made by Novatec (aka Eclectic). Our pillows and towels come from Richard Haworth and all the bed linen is high quality Egyptian cotton percale by Peter Reed.
