Skiing the French Pyrenees – St Lary, Cauterets & Grand Tourmalet

Skiing the French Pyrenees – St Lary, Cauterets & Grand Tourmalet

As a destination the French Pyrenees is probably not high on many skiers must-do lists. There are no big interlinked ski systems, high altitude resorts, exclusive hotels or celebrity endorsements.

Chateau Marmont – Los Angeles

‘If you must get into trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont’ – Harry Cohn, Columbia Pictures – Los Angeles is one of our favourite cities. But as the second most populous city in the United States, after New York, we can never quite think of it in such singular […]

The Westbury Hotel, The Doyle Collection – Dublin

The westbury Hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Dublin. Briefly explore the centre of Dublin and you will quickly realise the prime area to stay. Somewhere close to the verdant expanse of St Stephens Green perhaps, near to the vibrant creative quarter and nightlife of Temple Bar, within strolling distance of the historic Trinity College and Dublin Castle whilst having easy access to the shopping of Grafton Street.

Hotel Des Indes – Den Haag (The Hague), Netherlands

Hotel Des Indes – Den Haag (The Hague), Netherlands

The old adage is that Dutch people work in Rotterdam, play in Amsterdam and live in The Hague. We had never visited the Hague before and it was not long before we realised why it would be such a great place to call home. Missing the dreadful packed streets, tacky […]

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 Nobis Hotel – Copenhagen, Denmark

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 […]

Titanic Hotel – Stanley Dock, Liverpool

Titanic Hotel – Stanley Dock, Liverpool

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.
