Top 10 hotels, located in the lighthouses
There is a special type of hotels, which singles out from the other ones. Its peculiar feature consists in locating the rooms in the lighthouses. The lighthouses have practically become useless, because of the fast development of the marine navigation. That’s why the owners of these constructions equip them with the hotel or just offer them for sale. The list of Top-10 hotels will illustrate the hotels, located in the lighthouses.
1. Braddock Point Lighthouse (the USA)
The special atmosphere of this hotel is created with the help of a tunic and a captain cap, which hang at the entrance. The Victorian compass, which is in a good condition, also draws our attention. The lighthouse still sends the light signal to the passing vessels, thus, it’s used for its main purpose. The Niagara Falls is not far from the hotel, so 300 $ per night is not a high price.
2. Lighthouse Molja Hotel Brosundet (Norway)
The hotel is situated near the town of Alesund. There’s one room here, which you should book 6 months beforehand.
