Gartenhotel Theresia – Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria

Gartenhotel Theresia – Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria

For us the biggest selling point of any ski hotel has to be a ‘ski-in ski-out’ location, and when the local area also happens to be one of the largest linked ski regions in the country then we are most definitely sold. We were very excited indeed to visit the […]

The Cow Inn at Dalbury Lees – The Peak District

The Cow Inn at Dalbury Lees – The Peak District

Not too long ago a night at an English pub was something to be studiously avoided. Most likely it would mean being consigned to a stuffy room up a back staircase, and a breakfast at a pub table with a whiff of stale beer. Things are now hugely improved with […]

The Nobis Hotel – Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen is a place of hugely varied appeal. It is a richly historic city packed with architectural gems with, at its heart, the worlds longest shopping street. Proud to be green there is always open space by parks or water – it is criss-crossed by canals and on the shores […]

Entering the grounds of the is rather like arriving at an imposing Victorian prison. Castellated turrets resembling giant chess pieces guard the entrance and exit of a large cobbled courtyard that lies before a formidable looking redbrick building.

The Bristol Hotel, The Doyle Collection – Bristol, UK

Any regular visitor to Bristol will know that the only place to stay is as close as possible to the harbourside. This is the most attractive and vibrant part of town, now largely pedestrianised, where luxury flats sit comfortably alongside converted warehouses and workshops. These house a wide variety of bars, […]

The Aegialis Hotel & Spa – Amorgos, Greece

The 1988 cult classic The Big Blue directed by Luc Besson, is regarded as one of the most visually stunning films ever made, mostly due to the natural beauty of Amorgos where much of the filming took place. Re-watching the film recently spurred us in to action – we just had to […]

Hotel Le Delta – Le Grand Bornand, Haute Savoie, France
