Australia Boutique hotels
Boutique hotels are generally small hotels with a unique and intimate atmosphere. They offer top-quality service to their guests and many will provide little extras that might not be found in other hotels - things like flowers or chocolates. Many have a small, intimate restaurant on the premises. Other features can include pool, gym, and massage facilities. Reception and room service will generally be provided 24 hours a day. Because boutique hotels are small, they tend to give the guest a more personal experience.
The thing that sets boutique hotels apart is their individual flavour. They may have been purpose-built or could be an older style hotel that has been refurbished. Most have been architecturally designed and have a particular theme, whether it be modern or historic, with furnishings that are not of your everyday, run-of-the-mill variety. Some hotels have individual themes in each room so that each stay is unique, even for guests who have stayed there before.
Prices for boutique hotels can vary greatly depending on room type and services offered. While some will have a five star rating, not all do. Prices can start from around $150 for a single room up to as much as $1300 for a top quality suite.
