Our stay at the Merino Apartments

I wrote a few days ago about our last little trip away as a family of three. With the baby arriving anyway now (oh my god) we knew that at eight months pregnant this was our last chance for a little special break.

I love London in the Autumn and as I had some work appointments due it made sense to try and combine these with hanging out with my boys in the city too. You can read a bit more about what we got up to here

We were lucky enough to stay at Orchard Way, one of the apartments in the Merino Hospitality group.

We were really interested to stay in this particular property out of the the four they own as it's the first one to have been designed by previous guests. A really interesting (and probably quite brave) concept. I have to admit that the bold prints and wall decals are not something I'd ordinarily be drawn to but somehow they really really work in this beautiful space.

After a busy morning we checked into our pad and decided it was so perfectly cosy we didn't really want to head out after that. Tom picked up some bits from the shops round the corner and we settled in for the evening. The aesthetics of the property are modern but homely, with all the mod-cons you can think of (Sonos, Netflix, movement censored LED night lights and underfloor heating).

Upon arrival we were met with a welcome basket of wine, juice, eggs, bread and all the basics you can think of as well as luxury toiletries that this pregnant lady was very thankful for.

If you were to ask Wilf what he thought about our stay he would only be able to tell you about one room, the secret 'Minion room' full of Lego! I wish I had recorded his reaction upon opening the door and finding it at the top of the stars. He immediately called it as his bedroom and it was actually a bit of a struggle to convince him to sleep in an actual bed that evening and not a bean bag in the room. Such a brilliant idea as we were able to leave him to it for a good couple of hours whilst we chatted and made dinner in the kitchen.

The apartments location couldn't be easier to get to, it's literally about three minutes walk from Russell Square tube and a brilliant area to hang out in with Covent Garden is just ten minutes walk away.

It was the perfect place to spend our last little break as a family of three! 

We were guests at Orchard Way but all words and thoughts are my own
