After many weeks of designing and planning, Koshal and Lorraine are pleased to announce the Thistle room at Trafford Bank is now open for guests.

Formerly the Blue room, the main feature in the bedroom is one wall of Grand Thistle hand made paper from Timorous beasties. Curtains and the bathroom blind are also made with their fabric. Features include the latest Sony TV and dvd player, Pure dab internet radio and Ipod dock,Silent Fridge, hospitality tray, hair dryer and straightners. It also has a small seating area with new chairs designed and chosen by Lorraine and glass table and modern chevalier mirror.
Lorraine and Koshal have chosen orginal paintings from Katty McMurray in the bedroom and also 8 small enamel pictures by Janine Partington. These artists feature at Castle Gallery

The ensuite has been completely refurbished with a victorian style rool top bath with shower inside. The bathroom also has led lighting on the floor and a stunning plum coloured glass sink backsplash. The massive eye catching polished wall tiles are Italian Blue Dorato from Stonesource with floor tiles in the same unpolished material.

We hope all our guests enjoy this stunning room.

Holiday in Goa.

We have just returned from our annual trip to Goa India.

On this trip we came across a lovely new small hotel in Cavelossim called Casa De Cris run by James Baretto. Very reasonably priced , very clean with spacious rooms, fridge and A/C.

Also if you are in this area you must visit Sams beach shack on the Mobor beach near the Holiday Inn. The shacks are only on the beach from November till April. We have been eating at this shack for all the years we have been visiting Goa. Sam and the boys are such lovely people. Tuesday's party night is always the highlight of the week..

We have been visiting South Goa for 15 years now and its like a 2nd home to us and we can recommend it to everyone!
