10 of our favourite hotels: the homes of our dreams…

I asked a few friends of the decor cafe to share some of their favourite hotels – warm and welcoming and a feast for the senses, they are the fantasy homes of our dreams. All different – from quirky to traditional and comfortable to cool with lots of ideas to steal, it is fascinating to see personal styles reflected in the choices – all gorgeous of course…

Les Terrasses, Ibizia: “Very stylish, relaxed and eclectic. Hippy chic at it’s best”. Shared by Frederique Lhopiteau, feng shui buddy & manager of Roche Bobois Wandsworth.

The Bingham

The Bingham, Richmond: “Great to have a beautiful riverside venue to escape to so close to home”. Shared by lovely PR consultant Emma Roberts. She also suggested Pennyhill Park, Chewton Glen and Aviator…and we didn’t even get to her International list.

Olga Polizzi’s Tresanton, St Mawes: “Very stylish with a fabulous dark walnut floor I would have had at home if I could have afforded it”. Shared by Sustainable Home Consultant, Laura Polglase

La Residencia

La Residencia, Deia, Mallorca, Spain. “It is hard to decide how much of the joy we associate with the place comes from the pleasure of time spent with family and how much from the hotel itself”. Shared by Sue Paul, cookery writer and pop-up cafe creator.

Corinthia Hotel,

Corinthia Hotel, London: “lux all the way for a night in town”. Shared by Interior Designer Sals Tyrrell

Villa Mandarine

Villa Mandarine, Morocco: “Beautifully decorated in traditional Moroccan style”. Shared by Louise Chamberlain, decor buddy with The Decor Cafe.

Langar Hall

Langar Hall, Nottinghamshire:  “Beautiful, relaxing and quietly eccentric.” Shared by Louisa Blackmore of West Egg.

La Belle Juliette

La Belle Juliette Paris: “Contemporary and funky home from home, with delicious smells as they own a fragrance too”.  Shared by Interior designer Anne-Marie Taylor.

Anne-Marie also loves The Viceroy in Anquilla and The Amanjinwo in Java (above) with the most divine interior – in fact I have discovered that in addition to her interior design skills she would be a perfect travel consultant!

Nam Hai Hoi

Nam Hai, Vietnam and Jesmond Dene House Hotel, Newcastle: “Funny how we love English hotels that are full of character just as much as the more exotic ones abroad”. Shared by Stitch-up founder, Sandie Bonfield.

Renaissance Hotel

St Pancras Renaissance, London: “Recently updated and gorgeous”. Shared by Carolyn Reed, Reed-bc.co.uk, fellow supporter of Stem4.
