The Hermosa Inn – Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Arizona

The Hermosa Inn – Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Arizona

Hummingbirds flit around our our heads and water cascades from 16th century style fountains as we stroll along flower lined paths to our casita. Beyond there are desert cacti and red sandstone peaks. This is luxury living, Paradise Valley style. In the Greater Phoenix Area and adjacent to attractive Scottsdale, […]

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 […]

Hotel du Lion d’Or – Cauterets, French Pyrenees

In the France of one hundred or so years ago Cauterets was one of the places to be seen. Here was a highly fashionable spa town where the well-heeled and well connected could travel to enjoy the famed thermal baths of the region. From Paris travellers came directly by train, […]

Zermatt Resort & Spa – Near Park City, Utah

Zermatt Resort & Spa – Near Park City, Utah

The journey from Salt Lake City airport to Zermatt Resort & Spa is a particularly memorable one. Despite not having the Swiss Alps, a mountain railway and the Matterhorn there are a good many spectacular sights to cram in en route. Our short 45 minute drive from Salt Lake City […]

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. Some five stories high and once a rum warehouse the building sits […]

The Bristol Hotel, The Doyle Collection – Bristol, UK

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

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

If only the biggest and best resorts of the French Alps were much closer to Geneva. This is surely a recurring dream for anyone making the tedious haul up busy roads to the big names of the Tarentaise – resorts like Meribel, Val D’Isere and La Plagne. If only there […]

Boston Harbour Hotel

We have always thought that the best airport arrival is at Venice Marco Polo. A few moments out of the terminal and you are on spectacularly scenic water taxi ride across the lagoon. Well what do you know? We have just discovered that pretty much the same experience is available […]
