This trusted guide is consistently one of the bestselling hotel guides in the UK. Since the first edition in 1999 it has sold over 120,000 copies. Clear symbols, excellent maps, color photos, clear directions and quick reference indices help guide our readers to the best choice for them, and our fresh and lively write-ups paint an accurate picture. Our approach is unusual and subjective. There are no set rules, no interminable checklists and no hard and fast criteria for inclusion. We look for what we like, and celebrate the unusual, the beautiful and the individual.
