The Singular began life as a factory (a cold storage plant to be precise) in 1915. Opening as a luxury hotel at the end of 2011, this factory-come-hotel has lashings of charm.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

Strict conservation rules mean many of the original features have remained in place, including the external brickwork and many of the pipes and pulleys. Guests arrive into the plant's old herding pens before being whisked to the reception area (a glass cube raised over exposed pulleys, pumps and pipes) by a funicular. Victorian machinery lines the corridors, paying homage to the hotel's history.

The 57 rooms and suites are housed in the new wing, however still keep in line with the 'factory' style of the rest of the building. Corridors are stainless steel walls, and bedrooms are adorned with solid Victorian style furniture, such as mahogany desks and brass lamps. One of the best bits is they all have huge windows so guests can lie in bed looking out to the Patagonian fjords in Last Hope Sine - and located on a remote coastal stretch of Puerto Bories in Southern Patagonia, the views are spectacular.

The remote location of the hotel means the landscape is beautiful, and there is plenty do in the surrounding areas. Activities on offer include riding, hiking, biking and boating, and Torres del Paine National Park is just an hour away.

Back at the hotel there is a fantastic restaurant (with a corrugated iron roof, obviously) serving delicious octopus and king crab. There is also a spa (the largest in Patagonia) with a sauna, swimming pool and steam room, which is the perfect place to unwind after an adventurous day exploring Southern Patagonia.
