The Grounds of Alexandria

I recently re visited The Grounds of Alexandria which is an experience in itself!. The crowds were pumping, the food market was happening and the hustle and bustle was thrilling. Since my last visit a few new areas have been tiled which compliment the style and character of the establishment.

The private outdoor atrium feels oh so French and not to forget the gorgeous little farmyard…The Royal and Cuban encaustic tile designs were used for these areas. There is also the new addition of the florist and here they used the stunning Heritage antique design in keeping with the overall feel and look of the original building. Caroline Choker – the designer has done an amazing job creating The Grounds. Please make sure to check it out next time you are in Sydney....

The hanging plants and the and planter boxes look perfect with the patterned tiles as does the polished concrete floor in the two restaurants attached to the hotel. I was thrilled with the result and recommend this hotel for location and comfort....
