In our hotels choices we look for something a bit different, not a faceless chain or bland corridors which lead you to a room which could easily be anywhere. We value hotels which are unique, boutique or independent. We like to know where we are, whether through the locally created art work or indigenously sourced materials. We prefer hotels which demonstrate integrity through how they source their produce or how they reflect the history and diversity of their region. Above all we look for places that we would happily return to again, and know that you would too.


From Bangkok to Bali, Scotland to Sydney our database is growing all the time. We cover flashy city districts, quaint rural villages, remote tropical islands and isolated country retreats. If you need inspiration and don’t know where to begin, just browsing our fantastic pictures should fire up your imagination. And if you’ve had a hotel stay which seems a perfect fit and you are bursting to recommend we’d love to hear from you too. To feature here the hotel doesn’t have to be expensive; it just needs to be special.


We wanted to create the sort of site we would trust to help us make our precious holiday and mini break choices. It’s not easy to find reliable recommendations that speak to the things that are important to you, but we have tried to make this that place. We only recommend places we’ve loved and we share why in bite-sized description which give you enough of a taster to help you decide whether to go to their website or not. You can save hours trawling the internet because we have done the research for you. The only hard work left for you is in your final decisions!
