About
Description
House of Waine is a family owned and run property and this is reflected in the name Waine which is made up of the initials of the family members. Originally a family house, it was lovingly converted to a boutique More hotel and eventually opened in 2004. The interior design takes its cue from the Matriarch of the family and is imbued with a timeless elegance much like her. Less

Hi Anne, Many thanks for your inquiry and interest in our services. Due to the small capacity of our hotel, the restaurant mainly serves resident guests and those on conference. Kind regards, Alex

No need to bring your own electricity plug adaptor, the each hotel room has North American plugs so it was easy to keep my iPhone plugged in.
