Adina Aparthotel, Frankfurt

Frankfurt is a city that never ranked high in my to-visit list, and when trying to find things to see and do there it never really grabbed my attention in the way many other German cities have. But, when faced with cheap flights from there to Iceland, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to explore… Continue reading Adina Aparthotel, Frankfurt

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… Continue reading Relais Venezia, Venice

Summer Reads 2016

When the holiday countdown begins, the search begins for books to read while spending lazy days lounging by the pool or in the garden soaking up the sun.

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.

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… Continue reading TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma

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… Continue reading Premier Inn Bedford South, Bedford

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… Continue reading Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

Ben’s Cookies

In this world there are cookies, and then there are Ben’s Cookies. Located in several cities across England, with a number of shops in London (thankfully!), there are plenty of opportunities to sample the delights on offer in store. Each shop I’ve been to - maybe four? - has been more of a stall than… Continue reading Ben’s Cookies

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… Continue reading Hotel Cafe Pacific, Brussels
