We stayed at Spirit of the Knights hotel for a week at the end of October 2013.
This is a unique and truly beautiful hotel, brimming with history, character and style.
In the building's re-birth as a hotel, much love and attention to detail has been given, with stunning results.
Alex Marshall, who is a truly delightful and charming host and for whom nothing is too much trouble, explained to us that it was his mother who embarked on this mammoth task of restoration and construction and showed us photographs taken during the project. What courage and vision!
We travelled back in time in the Ottoman suite . It was heaven to sink into the huge and supremely comfortable bed and look up in awe at the 600 year old beams.
The courtyard garden is such an oasis of calm in the bustle and heat of the Old Town and so perfect to relax in after a day's sightseeing. At night, the garden was lit with candles - the effect was quite magical.
We were spoilt for choice at breakfast, which was beautifully presented. The yoghurt, fruit and honey platter was particularly delectable, as were the giant-sized croissants!
Throughout our stay, the service from Alex, Carl and Duncan was impeccable. All in all. a truly wonderful and unforgettable week.More
