Bored of the standard hotel room or apartment? So are we! At Cheval Collection, all of the properties possess their very own personalities… some are quirkier than others. There is an overwhelming choice of places to stay in both London and Edinburgh, but sometimes it’s fun to try something different, and it’s always better to stay in luxury. So, to help you out, we have rounded up the top quirky places to stay at Cheval…
Cheval Old Time Town Chambers: The Townhouse
Set in Edinburgh’s Old Town and located opposite St Giles Cathedral, the Townhouse at Cheval Old Town Chambers is spread over three levels and dates all the way back to the 14th century. The entrance may be an unassuming discreet doorway on Advocates Close, but what lies beyond is a gem of a Residence, where medieval features meet contemporary luxury living. The master bedroom, complete with a super king-size bed, features a luxurious freestanding copper bathtub, fit for a king or queen! Large, shuttered windows look out onto historic cobbled streets, whilst an ultra-modern shower room offers the comforts of 21st-century luxury. The second floor is completely dedicated to a one-of-a-kind open-plan bathroom. You’ll be welcomed by the inviting bathtub centrepiece, encircled by luxurious drapes, gothic-style candles and smooth wood flooring.
Cheval The Edinburgh Grand: The Directors’ Suite
Originally home to The Bank of Scotland, Cheval The Edinburgh Grand’s Directors’ Suite was one of the most important rooms in the building – the bank’s board of directors’ dining room. We can only imagine the interesting conversations that must have taken place in this room! Now fully renovated, the Directors’ Suite ticks all the boxes with its original fireplace and gold ancient wood panelling. The middle of the apartment houses a large table that seats ten guests and is perfect for nights dedicated to showing off your culinary skills (or have someone cook for you!). Retire to the master bedroom complete with large cognac wood-panels and a king-size bed. An ideal place to both, relax and entertain.
