Is it the enormous, amazingly comfortable bed? Huge TV?
Real paintings on the walls, atmospheric light fittings in the bathroom?
The fancy aromatherapy bath products?
For me there is only one critical benchmark.
A hotel stay just is not impressive if there isn't a cushy white towelling robe awaiting.
Never mind the fact that I have one of these at home, that I never wear. It's different when I'm way from home, got a hotel room to myself and only have work clothes. It's quite a bit cooler in Bowral than Canberra, and I didn't bring a comfy jumper.
This is the place where work put us up for two nights. But now I'm in Adelaide. Womadelaide starts tonight.
