aspirations into a single source of inspiration – and it’s our hope that Best Loved Hotels, whether the book or the Web site, helps make the decision-making process not only easier, but fun as well.
Way back in 1993, we had a sneaking suspicion that people who enjoyed staying in unique and characterful properties – country houses, farmhouses, B&B’s, inns, castles, city-centre hotels and resorts – were missing a comprehensive, dynamic travel tool to help them plan trips to the UK and Ireland. And thus Best Loved Hotels was born.
So, more than a decade after the release of our first edition, what continues to make our selection of hotels Best Loved? You do! Every time you make travel plans, you keep in mind past experiences, values, and your own unique requirements. Therefore, there’s no surprise that everyone who visits this site has their own Best Loved hotel, or a particularly memorable travel experience that they’ll remember for a lifetime. It’s our job to distil all those experiences, dreams and aspirations into a single source of inspiration – and it’s our hope that Best Loved Hotels, whether the book or the Web site, helps make the decision-making process not only easier, but fun as well.
What you’ll find on this site is a huge selection of hotels in Britain and Ireland – from the stately home to the welcoming inn – each the best of its kind in its locality and price range. There are hundred of places where you might choose to stay, each with its own special allure – but each has great character, each is a vital part of the delights and attractions of its region and each, in its own special way, is best loved by someone who has stayed there.
