Hotel Maiyango

 Last weekend, Dan and I celebrated our fourth anniversary together. As a special treat, Dan booked us a night at a local boutique hotel and a table for the evening. We had been looking forward to our trip for months.
With Mr Bee happy at home with his Nana, we arrived at the hotel around 4 o clock. We were warmly greeted and shown to our room. There had been some mix-up concerning our table booking, in which we were advised we would be receiving room service as an alternative. Luckily for us, there was a reservation and they prepared one of their romantic booths for our evening meal.
Everything was absolutely perfect, from the service of the staff to the tiny details in the room. The specially made furniture was beautiful and the Cowshed toiletries in the bathroom were a big hit! We were made to feel very special indeed!
We spent a while in the book shop (like old times) before checking out the cinema times and booking tickets for Breaking Dawn (pt 2). We returned and freshened up and killed some time taking goofy photos in the mirror!

We had our first evening in the Cinema De Lux Directors Hall where we enjoyed wine and nibbles brought to our seats in the cinema. Then we headed back to the restaurant for our reservation.
In our favourite cocktail haunt, we tried new drinks and feasted on possibly the nicest meal we have ever eaten. Compliments to the chef indeed! Then we retired to our room to enjoy the deep fill bath and rain shower before settling in to the HUGE bed.

 It was a crisp morning looking out on to Leicester's High Street, blissfully quiet (unlike kick out time at 3am...). We headed up to the gallery for a wonderful breakfast selection. The fresh croissants were just fantastic! Before heading home, we did a little more Christmas shopping for our little bee.

Thankfully, Mr Bee had been a little star for his Nana, only asking for us once the whole time we were away. I guess he didn't really notice we were gone!

What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary, it is going to be hard to top that next year!
