A Perect Getaway

So, you know what it's like when you need to book a place to stay and you search the Internet looking for somewhere suitable. Unless it's a recommendation from someone it's always a bit of a gamble isn't it? And lets face it, a lot of times when you arrive the property or the rooms look nothing like they did on the website (well this is certainly the case in my experience - but then I think I have been a bit unlucky in the past) Anyway, me and my sister Jo decided to treat ourselves to a night away for some relaxation (and in Jo's case to get in a good nights sleep something she hasn't had since her 9 month old daughter arrived :0)

I wanted somewhere fairly close to Jo as we didn't want to spend hours on the road . After some Googling I came across a place called  Ambiente in Matakana. It looked really nice so I called up and made a booking for the bed-sit suite.

We were  greeted by Lesley the owner and showed to our room which was gorgeous.  The room was spacious and immaculate with lovely views and lots of  nice little extra touches such as little scented lavender bags and chocolates next to the bed, a complimentary bottle of wine and silk robes and slippers. Our private bathroom was just across the hall from our room and once again no detail had been overlooked. The bath mats were soft and fluffy, the towels were crisp and clean and the spacious shower was lovely and powerful.

The next morning we had our continental breakfast upstairs in the dining area and had the pleasure of Lesley and Normans company.  Overall our experience at Ambiente was fabulous and I would highly recommend it. The owners, Lesley and Norman are lovely and made us feel so welcome and relaxed during our stay.

The bed was soooo comfy and even had an electric blanket...
The robes and slippers were a lovely little touch...
I loved this picture, that was painted by Lesley's mum...
A nice bottle of wine on arrival...don't mind if we do!
The view from our room...
Chocolates next to the bed (which lasted 2 minutes...max!!)

So if you fancy a night away from the chaos and a bit of time out give Ambiente a call... I don't think you'll be disappointed!
