View from the Room: Hotel des Coutellier, Quebec City

This year’s birthday hotel! The attraction to this hotel that kicked off my month-long birthday celebrations, other than it looking scrumptiously comfortable, is that breakfast arrives in a bag each morning. Storage Drawers –  two on each bedside and lots of shelving plus two cupboards. Hangers – 18 including two soft ones. Two single open wardrobes […]

View from the Room: Novotel Hong Kong

For my first trip to this continent, my expectation is of excellent service and comfortable surroundings.  There were many hotels that boasted good views but wit smaller rooms. As we were there for a week, we decided to go for space rather than view and stay in the ‘Chinese side’, Kowloon. Location In this relentless city […]

View from the room: Maldon, Dublin

Maldron Parnell Square Dublin, Ireland Location We chose the hotel as it seemed to be in a quiet location. It is about a 15 minute trek if all you want is the city centre but otherwise, it works. It’s near the Writers Museum too but I didn’t realise that until someone I knew back home […]

View from the room: Limerick Strand

  Limerick Strand, Limerick, Ireland. Location Overlooking the Shannon River (although our executive room didn’t afford us a view alas). Perfectly located just over the bridge from town so we had the chance to cross the magnificent river at least twice a day, usually more, as it’s just 5 minutes from the main area. Bathroom […]

November 2015 Location – Perfect. On a side street ut 10 seconds from the main shopping street leading to the river and old town Style/character – Billed as romantic, we thought quirky. It is the latter! As you will see from the photos, The Magic Flute room looks scrumptious. Service – A little aloof but […]
