Five great hotel gardens

We love our city breaks, but at this time of year what we really want is a hotel with a garden. We’ve found five that fit the bill perfectly.Nimb, CopenhagenNimb  boasts one of the biggest hotel gardens in Europe since the Moorish-style boutique hotel is set in Copenhagen’s 19-acre Tivoli Gardens. Nimb overlooks one of the quietest corners of Tivoli, with a dancing bubble fountain and pretty aquatic plants.Hotel de Russie, RomeRome’s Hotel de Russie has at its heart a beautiful (not-so) Secret Garden made up of fragrant terraces planted with palm trees, yews and climbing roses. It’s said that when Picasso and Jean Cocteau were guests here they would lean out of their windows and pick oranges from the trees. You can dine in the gardens, too.Regent's Garden, ParisRegent’s Garden Hotel in Paris opens onto a Japanese-style space filled with magnolias, rhododendron and clematis in spring and climbing roses and white hydrangea in summer. Gardens are rare in central Paris: this one, landscaped by Xavier De Chirac, is a real oasis (there’s even a fountain). In a city where hotels don’t generally have gardens at all, The Goring  is lucky enough to have one of the largest private gardens in London. Croquet followed by afternoon tea on the lawn anyone? The Glasshouse, EdinburghThe garden at  The Glasshouse in Edinburgh takes things up a gear – quite literally as it’s set over two acres of roof space. Some of the rooms open onto the roof garden; there’s a restaurant up there, too. It’s a great way to get a bird’s eye view of this lovely city.
