Never had a launch or send off for Belleva as we have nothing to brag about. It’s a team effort where I have orchestrated the design behind each room with help dressing the space from Danielle Robinson each step of the way. We like low key.
So we have decided the final room at Belleva to complete (room 3) should be designed by Dee Lou (Danielle). In it there is already a lovely double bed that is beige linen. Pale grey thick twist carpet and light painted walls (where we started last year). She has a blank canvas on from this. With help from our loyal and expert craftsman Colin Almond who is perfect for the ongoing upkeep of Belleva, I am very excited to give Danielle this stage alongside the help of Colin.
The Dee Lou Rob Suite is to the front of the property on the first floor. It is a heavenly room with a beautiful window and private bathroom with an L Shaped bath. There is a Smart TV in the bedroom and bathroom friendly Smart TV. Smart heating to lower our carbon footprint and LED light bulbs.
The only clue I have is that it will be ‘Blackpool’ inspired and bright. Not many people know about Belleva and they are booking on sites that offer hundreds of other hotels. Guests don’t know our story or anything about behind the scenes. This is a tough business. But Belleva is a house full of love and magic and best enjoyed when quiet. It will take a long while to be established as a known hotel since it has not traded since 2014.
Okay, we decided not to offer early morning breakfasts. Each to their own. We do offer brunch in the café open for guests. We have no need to conform to any other persons expectations because we are trying our best and that’s enough. We are however open to guest suggestions. Therefore we have a suggestion box in our hallway.
That said, if neighbours wish to contribute please drop a note through the door. You’re welcome. A space is not a competition. We live in a free society and that’s art. We do what we can with what we have and collect like minded connections along the way.
