Have you ever had a daydream about owning a luxury apartment right in the centre of the city? Somewhere with beautiful décor, gorgeous views and conveniently located near all of your favourite bars and restaurants? I certainly have!
Unfortunately for most of us this will only ever be a dream, however this month one of my favourite hotels, The Vermont (home of the amazing Bridge Brasserie and Sky Lounge) have opened The Vermont Aparthotel, allowing dreams to become reality for a night or two.
The Aparthotel has been built just across the road from the Vermont Hotel, close to Newcastle's famous Quayside, and boasts 11 luxury apartments.
I was invited in for a little sneaky peak and let's just say I was rather reluctant to leave! The apartments are stunning and certainly gave me a small glimpse into what an extravagant lifestyle might be like. Luckily these apartments are available for normal folk like you and me with prices starting from only £129.00 per night for a Luxury One Bed Apartment.
The one and two bed apartments are beautifully furnished and include huge comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchens, HD TVs, wifi and even butler service if you're feeling extra fancy. The apartments would be perfect for a romantic overnight stay with your partner or for a little together with old friends.
For an extra special stay there are two penthouse suites at the Aparthotel sleeping up to four people. I had a look round the Dom Perignon suite and it was stunning.
The marble bathroom was a dream, the bedrooms were gorgeous and the communal lounge area with its very own bar looked like the perfect place to spend the evening.
I was also really pleased to discover that with the opening of the Vermont Aparthotel comes "Churchills", a brand new bar that's open to the public as well as guests. Dark wood furnishings, a warm fire and comfortable Chesterfields fill the space, making for a very relaxing and peaceful environment. It's definitely somewhere that I'll be bringing visiting friends to.
The Vermont Aparthotel was everything I hoped it would be and I now plan on spending most of my spare time hinting to Simon that I'd quite like to stay there for a night. I'll let you know how I get on!
