Choosing the right hotels during the travel can increase your satisfaction with the trip and in best cases also add memorable experiences. I love searching for great and special hotels. A few years ago, I came across Relais&Châteaux hotel chain uniting more than 550 exceptional hotels in the world that share gorgeous design and fantastic food. The first hotel of this chain where I stayed was 5-star superior Hotel Bülow Palais Dresden, which I truly enjoyed. So, I was really happy being invited by the hotel of this chain for a second time. This time it was 5-star hotel Relais & Châteaux Hotel Quadrille in Gdynia, Poland. I must say I just loved my stay and this hotel chain even more than before.
5-star hotel Relais & Châteaux Hotel Quadrille is located in Gdynia’s Orlowo district some 10 minutes’ walk from Gdynia Orlowo train station, so it’s accessible by public transport. Spacious parking lot allows enough space for visitors’ cars. While staying there you can easily visit all three nearby cities Gdynia, Sopot, and Gdansk. All together locals call them the Tricity. In the same time, you are away from hustle and bustle of the city life.
Address: Folwarczna 2, 81-547 Gdynia.
The entrance hall has an amazing black-and-white floor as a reference to the game of chess played by the main characters of the Alice in Wonderland novel. Reception is located in the main building and greets you with old style furniture, open space and tapestries of bookshelves with books in the background. Checking in is smooth and quick.
Sitting room with bright designer’s furniture is located on the first floor and offers a great view of the park from the balcony.
Even if you don’t stay at the hotel, you have to dine there. Weather was great and I had dinner in the open area next to the palace building. The White Rabbit specialities include recipes based on local products prepared by local chefs. I had quail stuffed with liver pâté with seasonal beetroot glazed with elderberries and campfire potato. I must say it was really mouth-watering.
Pub 10/6 is located in the underground area of the Palace where you can have a drink or two in a relaxing atmosphere.
I did not try body or face treatments, but I learnt that they use Comfort Zone brand for body treatments and facial treatments based on the Forlle’d
I went swimming in a swimming pool and enjoyed my experience.
Hotel owners sisters Mrs Anna Gorska and Mrs Martyna Gorska-Popielarz are greeting you in many places in hotel looking at you from the paintings on the walls.
In fact, those portraits were initially photos made by Sylwia Markis during a photo session before palace renovation. Sylwia is known for emanating unusual beauty in her photos. She often collaborates with famous Polish stylist Katarzyna Konieczka which was also the case this time.
