Why "triple sheeting"?

Bedspreads collect dirt, absording everything from odours, body fluids, food and beverage spills, dust and grime. And Lord knows what may have been going on on top of that bedspread  .... shudder!

Hotels and motels do not launder bedspreads after each guest checks out. They don't get washed very often!

Doesn't exactly give you the warm fuzzies to think about how long it may have been since that motel or hotel bedspread may have been washed, does it?

That's why we don't have bedspreads!

What is "triple sheeting"?

Triple sheeting uses three flat sheets to achieve a luxurious sleep experience with freshly laundered sheets covering all bedding. The first flat sheet goes down over the mattress protector, above this lies the second sheet. A continental blanket is then placed on top of the second sheet and a final third sheet is placed on top of this.

This method of making the bed (used in leading hotels around the world) is a little more work for us and increases our laundry costs but more importantly ensures a hygienic and luxurious nights sleep for you. 


Free unlimited wireless (fibre) internet

We think that making it easy for you to stay connected with family & friends is essential when you are travelling and making it FREE and unlimited is another great reason to stay. We even have an aerial in every room connected to fibre to ensure you have the very best connectivity.

We can also provide internet access for those who don't have a laptop, ipad or tablet with them.
