Thanks Shaun Great to read you had another enjoyable little stay.

The Little National Hotel was gorgeous. While the room size was smaller, it wasn’t missing anything we needed, and we were able to get ready for a formal wedding and a brunch the following morning without a hitch. Bathroom was great - shower was hot and strong, the mirror itself lit up to do make-up, and the towels were fluffy. My only concern was getting the towels to dry overnight, so perhaps ask for a couple of extras when you check in. All the usual suspects were provided - nice soap and toiletries, hairdryer, etc. The little beverages closet was good - hubby made good coffee when he needed it, and the T2 teas were a nice upgrade from the normal teas so many hotels leave as an afterthought. The iron was a good one and the ironing board was a little on the small side, but did what I needed it to. The bed... so many are divided on the huge, cloud-like beds. If you love a rock hard bed, this will be very different, but this super soft bed didn’t lack support. I really can’t do it justice, except to say that after a day in stilettos, dancing, and traipsing around the capital, I slept like a baby and woke up feeling better than I have in years! And they have pillows in two softnesses to ensure you don’t wake with a crooked neck. And the aircon works perfectly. We didn’t use any of the communal areas, bars, or eating spaces, so I’m still clueless on them. We loved our stay and the LNH will be our first choice when we return for our next visit.
