Our Christmas present to you…
Now we’re not trying to fill Santa’s boots or anything, but this year we gave our guests the best Christmas present of all… New beds!
And we didn’t stop there. We measured all of our 53 bedrooms, and decided that 45 of them could accommodate some super king-sized beds. So we headed out to find our bigger beds and the comfiest of mattresses to go with them.
As far as big decisions go, choosing a mattress is a whopper. A good night’s sleep is one of the best things in the world, and we like our overnight stays to be comfortable and satisfying from beginning to end.
First of all, with the loch being right on our doorstep, we did the obvious. We tried out a water mattress. It was nice and comfy, but far too risky. Visions of water pouring down through the ceiling and putting out our cosy fires over Christmas killed that idea before it even got off the ground.
We must have lay on over 100 mattresses, some didn’t even warrant us lying right down, a simple seat was enough to know it wasn’t right. Then we found it, the comfiest mattress we’d ever laid down on. We knew it was ‘the one’ immediately, and it was confirmed when we woke up 15 minutes later with the salesman shaking us by the shoulder.
For all of the rooms we got new beds, mattresses, brand new mattress toppers, pillows, linen – you name it, we got it.
Of course the next logical step was to wrap up our beds, but sadly the local store doesn’t stock over 2226 square metres of wrapping paper so we decided to give it a miss.
We were on the edge of our beds over Christmas waiting to hear our guests’ feedback on their pressies, but we’ll sleep soundly now. Just like our guests.
