It’s that time of year again when my husband reaps the benefits of his wife working at RedBalloon. This year we took a more relaxed approach and for Chris’s birthday we experienced the Sydney Luxury Getaway for 2- Overnight Delight at Woolloomooloo Wharf.
From the moment we walked in through the historic Wool Shed, Staff could not have been more helpful and eager to show us around the cool premises. Fully renovated in Industrial Chic and apparently Russell Crowe has an apartment located on the premises- so we knew we were in for a treat.
The minute the wooden shutters were pulled away we were hit with a spectatcular view of Sydney CBD and the Royal Botanic Gardens.┬á Our room wa fitted with all the mod cons including ipod-dock, wireless (on request) and even a DVD player complete with in-house DVD library. We even had a sweet little gift bag in the room complete with our own little Blue Teddy bear!
Once we settled in to our posh new digs, our doorbell rang and the lovely staff bought in Champagne and a Choc Fondue- perfect for lounging and general feasting. Honestly we had so much food we didn’t know what to do with it- but Chris was only too happy to oblige and slowly but surely demolished the whole lot by the end of the night.
After a well rested night on our Custom Pillows (hmmmm Goose down or Hypo Allergenic?) We still had the joy of a buffet Breakfast situated next to the very cool Water Bar. Overall a pretty awesome mini-getaway in Sydney and not a bad start for a Monday Morning! Needless to say we both had abit more spring in our step for our walk to work that morning.
