Hotel Review, Venice

Relais Venezia, Venice

In a city as compact as Venice, there are hotels within a stone's throw of most places. But, trying to find somewhere central, comfortable and at a reasonable price is tricky in a city where most places carry a Venetian price tag. Location Just a few minutes' walk from the world-famous San Marco Square, Relais [...]

Copenhagen, Hotel Review

Copenhagen Admiral Hotel, Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a city known for it's price tag, and it can be hard to find a bargain without compromising on the hotel. Thankfully, the city is quite compact, so finding a hotel not slap bang in the city centre isn't a problem. A converted 18th century warehouse, Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is a real eye-catcher. The [...]

Hotel Review, Majorca

TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma

On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds - interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool. I thought it was a bit ambitious, and didn’t hold much hope of finding an affordable hotel in a great location with a pool. But then I stumbled upon TRYP Palma [...]

Premier Inn Kempston room
England, Hotel Review

Premier Inn Bedford South, Bedford

There are pros and cons to staying with a huge hotel chain - you know that there’s a certain standard they need to maintain, but you don’t always get that personal touch that comes with smaller family-run hotels. So when I found out I was off a business trip with work (not as glamorous as [...]

Hotel Review, Oxford

Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

A weekend away with the family is always lovely, and when you’re actually spending the weekend at a spa hotel in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside it’s twice as nice. And I’m talking no signal on your phone kind of countryside, which is fine until you’re lost and realise you can’t access Google Maps [...]

Brussels, Hotel Review

Hotel Cafe Pacific, Brussels

Hotels are dotted all over the city in Brussels, but the cost is as you would expect to find in a city centre - expensive! When looking for a hotel to cover the one night we were staying in Brussels, I tried to find something that wouldn’t break the bank, but that was also going [...]

Martin's Bruges entrance
Bruges, Hotel Review

Hotel Martin’s Brugge, Bruges

Bruge is a stunning city tucked away in a corner of Belgium. There aren’t a great deal of ‘sights’ to see, but the city itself is lovely to just explore. Everyone I have met who has been to Bruges responds in the same way when I tell them I’ve just been there - ‘ahh…isn’t it [...]

Cologne, Hotel Review

NH Köln City, Cologne

Cologne (Köln) is one of the largest cities in Germany, and home to the Köln Dom which is the biggest cathedral in Germany. Before visiting I wasn’t sure what else was in the city, but I do love a good church and had heard there were a few Christmas markets, so decided we’d stop in [...]

Berlin, Hotel Review

Relexa Hotel Stuttgarter Hof, Berlin

Trying to find somewhere of a good standard, but without paying an arm and a leg can be tricky when looking for a central hotel in Berlin. After much searching I found Relexa Hotel. At first, I thought it might be a bit too far out of the way, as I always like to be within [...]
