Not only tourists are discovering the beauty of the country’s interior, but also hoteliers: Jeff Stober for example. He owns the chic town hotel The Drake in downtown Toronto, and is now expanding to Wellington on the north shore of Lake Ontario. His new Drake Devonshire is definitely a new jewel in his crown, which must be placed on the international “Pretty Hotels” map. In order to achieve this, Stober converted and old foundry dating back to the late 1800. The eleven rooms and two signature suites (pictures above you can see the owner’s suite) are colourful and fit right in to the new designer trend: everything that is pretty, is allowed.
If you are just planning a day trip to Wellington or to the the beautiful countryside of Prince Edward County, you can stop off at the Drake Devonshire: on offer is lunch and dinner and sometimes even barbecue parties with music and nice people.
All Pretty Hotels fans, who prefer to live more colourful than grey!
Double room from ca. 165 euros.
