Art, attention, space and luxury. What is not to love? The curated collection is a reason enough to go, the attention to detail a reason to return. The space is luxurious, and the staff attentive. Best I have found in PE (so far!)

Beautiful hotel. This was the second time we have stayed, the finer details maybe this time wasn't up to scratch. When I say finer details; cookie jar was not filled, it was empty. The service for drinks around the pool, well, there was none; we had to keep calling them. Lovely breakfast and friendly staff.

Business trip. Very friendly staff and we felt right at home. The suite rooms are very large, with a lounge area, patio, work station, bar area, as well as a very spacious bathroom. All in all a very pleasant stay and I am sure to visit again.

Upon arrival it was a great experience. The check in was fast, I was shown to my room. I had the Faulkner Suite and it is huge. Astonishing interior, a huge bathroom with a bathtub for tall guests ;) Attached to the room is a rather large balcony with a table and chair. Laundry service just took 90 minutes. The... More

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at No 5 Boutique Hotel. Meggan from the Hotel and Zelda from the Spa made this an unforgettable experience.
