ROSE AND CROWN


The Easter long weekend was a lot of fun! I was involved in an event, an Easter Egg Hunt  for “Give me five for Kids” at Apex Park in Merredin, and there were 310 children registered!! There were a few prizes, and not one kid left without chocolate in hand….

This year I thought I wouldn’t have as much chocolate, but someone bought me quite a few, so I couldn’t help but indulge!!! Chocolate is a favourite thing of mine, and is probably on my top 10 favourite foods list!

On Tuesday I headed to Perth for a nights stay at the 3 star Rose and Crown Hotel. It was a three hour drive as per usual, and was glad when we finally arrived! I have stayed there before, but this time was on the ground floor. It is located in Swan Street, Guildford, and is located in the Swan Valley region of Western Australia. It is quite a popular hotel and is cited as one of Perth’s Top 20 destinations by The Sunday Time’s Escape magazine. You can hold corporate functions there, and weddings, and Christmas events also. Check out the website for Events and What’s On – which includes things like LIVE Entertainment.

The room I was in had FREE WI-FI, television, mini fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. The best part for me was the free wifi so I could search the internet, AND work on my blog! There was NO LIMIT of hours – you can just log back in once your time is up! For lunch I caught up with some friends, and ordered garlic prawns, and had chocolate and vanilla gelato with honeycomb for dessert.

I went back to the motel room, and that night I went to ACE Cinema in Midland with some friends and watched “My Big Fat Greek Wedding Part Two”! MY, what a movie! I thought it was fantastic, and it was almost even better than the first! It was full of laughs, and fun, and more laughter!!! The next time I go I want to watch either “The lady in the van” OR “London is falling”…. anything to do with London, and I am there! Zootopia looks great too!!!

After that we headed back to the motel with hot chocolate in hand from a place called “Alfred’s Kitchen“, and it was perfect for the night.

The next day, which is today we had complimentary breakfast – Bacon and scrambled eggs. It was delicious!!!! and I had a look through the place, and took more photos!!!

The Rose and Crown was established in the 1800’s so the building was exquisite, with dark floorboards, gorgeous chandeliers that I wanted!!!! and cream painted walls. It was beautiful to look around, and I enjoyed myself taking the photos!!

It was the most fabulous day, and if you’re ever in the east of Perth, don’t forget to check it out! It also has a swimming pool, but I didn’t have time for a dip! I was enjoying the establishment and had fun looking around.

Travelling here was fun, and it was nice to head back home though! It was paradise when we ate in the beer garden in a gazebo! It would be very fun to have a jazz band play in the background we thought!

I went to Spotlight and bought a new bedspread which was actually called “Princess”!!! hehehe it is like a dark cream with an ivory filigree pattern on it. It came with 2 standard pillow covers so it felt luxurious when I made my bed when I got home!

And when we were in Mundaring, I checked out “By the book” bookshop in the village, and bought “The Red Queen” by Phillipa Gregory – about an heiress to the Red Rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort – I am a sucker for historical romance! This shall keep me busy and entertained for the next couple of days! I love her writing….

Travelling has been so fun, but now that I have this book, and a new quilt, I just want to snuggle up in bed with a cup of tea tonight, and just relax. It has been a wonderful couple of days! Full of adventure……….. and exciting things.
