Ever stayed in a harbour control tower or a cold-storage warehouse?

Why not convert a building that is no longer used for its initial purpose and make it into somewhere unique and desirable to stay? It's quite surprising what unusual buildings have been made into hotels which add an unusual element to your holiday.

Take a look at these hotels which used to be something different: convents, grain stores, control towers . . .

It was so strange walking past the old machinery of this historic warehouse to our luxurious rooms and the huge dining room. We loved The Singular. It was done so well.
