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.
