As plans are revealed for the first underwater hotel, here are the top 10 most unusual hotels around the world
If you go down to the woods todayThis enchanted boutique Belgian B&B offers ten individually designed bedrooms, inspired by fairy tales from all over the world. Winding staircases and a stunning array of carved wooden features at La Balade des Gnômes bring the magic to life in this quaint and weirdly extravagant hotel. Journey through the Arabian Nights, outer space, a troll-hideout with its own goldfish stream, or an old captain’s ship where guests can gaze at the stars above in a boat floating in a pool. It even has a Trojan Horse suite - just in case you need to enter a foe's territory. This imaginative gem is hidden away in an unassuming farmhouse designed by the architect and visionary hotelier Mr Noël.
