Quirky luxury hotels - Stay in a fairytale castle

Tuesday, 3 April 2014 10:36 AM

If you’ve ever dreamed of staying in a disneyesque fairytale castle, then this is probably what you imagined - turreted towers, romantic balconies, immaculate manicured gardens with scrambling roses and soft enchanting lighting. Welcome to the Thorngrove Manor Hotel.

Located in the southern Australian city of Adelaide Thorngrove Manor truly provides a romantic getaway with a difference. And with just seven uniquely styled rooms you’re guaranteed intimacy and privacy.

The fairytale dream doesn’t just end with the outside though, as the inside will also want to make you live out your Sleeping Beauty fantasies, with four poster canopy draped beds, stately antique style furniture, tapestries, ornate fireplaces and hanging chandeliers.

Dining too is a regal affair with fine antiques and sterling silver, as well as delicious gourmet meals and top quality Australian wines. Prince and Princess fitting activities include relaxing and indulging treatments in the hotel’s own spa or romantic walks through dreamy gardens with commanding vistas to top it all off.

Dreams really do come true in this enchanted palace.
