Turn your stay into a reading getaway 

Turn your stay into a Reading Getaway with The Royal Hotel x House of Anansi Press. 

Book your stay from October to January and enjoy three titles from House of Anansi Press. Relish in the relaxing vibes of The County to escape to literary worlds. Relax by the fire with a glass of wine, turn your pages in our cedar-clad sauna, curl up in bed, or soak in a hot bath.

The most-anticipated Anansi title – The Librarianist, from the bestselling and award-winning author Patrick deWitt comes the story of Bob Comet, a man who has lived his life through and for literature, unaware that his own experience is a poignant and affecting narrative in itself; An Ordinary Violence by Adriana Chartrand – a chilling horror novel about a young Indigenous woman haunted by the oppressive legacies of colonization; and from the CBC Massey Lectures The Age of Insecurity – in this urgent cultural diagnosis, author and activist Astra Taylor exposes how seemingly disparate crises originate from a social order built on insecurity.

Also included in The Reading Getaway add-on package is a cozy pair of socks from local alpaca farm SHED Chetwyn Farms and a Royal scented candle from The County Candle Co., paired with a package of extra-long decorative Royal matches. 

Make sure to book your dining reservation and spa appointment. While you are here talk to our knowledgeable front desk team about nature hikes, County wineries, and art galleries.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
