The interior won't disappoint. Mix with friends, family or colleagues in a living area dominated by floor-to-ceiling windows. Two long, comfortable sofas provide the perfect place to relax.

The Roadster is an amazing space with two en-suite bedrooms and oodles of custom-made furniture. We back that up with fabulous service and optional extras. We're passionate about making things as damn-near perfect as we can.

The Penthouse - the biggest dollop of Staying Cool.

Official five star rating. Rates from £299 per night.
