I found Wallace's Art House by chance and this is one of those gem discoveries that you wish to share with everybody. I was there with my family (4 of us) and Wallace was incredibly hospitable and cordial, so much so that you felt it the moment you arrive at his place. It was modern with lots of quirks - paintings, decorative ornaments which drew your eyes to discover something naughty or humorous on closer study. It was just like staying over at a friend's and Wallace gave us a tour of the Art House and made us feel so at home. The rooms were clean and the bed was plush and inviting. In the morning, he laid out a scrumptious breakfast and was the attentive host while he sat with us to share tales and have a giggle. Staying in 5 star hotels can be a luxury but on occasions like this, you are reminded that there is something about genuine warmth that sticks deeper and sweeter in your memory.
