We have it all

The Last Word is the most intimate experience you will find. Underpinning the pleasures in our sanctuaries are three very important values we hold dearly which are kindness, character and generosity. The smiles on the faces of our family members and their attention to guests’ well-being shows the kindness we have become known for. The interiors reflect a distinctive character of understated elegance while the positioning of each hotel offers different and unique surrounds. The generosity is abundant everything we do particularly in the exceptionally large rooms, the wholesome breakfasts, complimentary wireless internet, beverages and in-room mini-bars.

We're ready for you

Our mission simply: To make people happy. In lockdown we found a new purpose; To fill serene sanctuaries with kindness and lovely people. This is cosy living rather than hurried existence, a slowed down experience that emphasises personal happiness. And right in the middle of this purpose we forged our our singular core value - kindness – the very essence of heart candy and the seat of inner happiness.  However, compassion is hard to come by in the real world. It’s often confined to close family or great friendship, rarely dished out in bucket loads by hotels. It is a rather elusive quality.

We realised that if we employed the right people (and we do), who showed amplified levels of kindness, with commensurate trust and confidence, the image of our brand would become hauntingly elusive.

We could become known as lovely people who look after lovely people and because lovely people attract one another this could form part of a self-sustaining alchemy, autocatalytic in that the combination of sanctuary, kindness and lovely people propels itself.
