I can't praise this hotel enough.

Hotel de Vie is a boutique hotel with a naughty twist. We indulged ourselves with the Scarlet Suite, deliciously decadent. Brilliantly conceived and superbly executed. Stylish, clean, plus wonderfully helpful and welcoming staff. All this and a yummy breakfast!!! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks to all at Hotel de Vie. D&J
