Edinburgh Festival Fringe Guide
What is The Fringe?  The Fringe is the single biggest celebration of arts and culture on the planet. It has been held in the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, since its creation in 1947. Every August for three weeks...
Dakota Hotel, South Queensferry
With the Forth Bridge providing a beautiful backdrop, Dakota Hotel was our base during our weekend spent enjoying the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. For £150 for a one night stay, this was one of the better options in the Edinburgh area at 4 star level. 
Sunborn Yacht Hotel, London
Living like a millionaire on a luxury yacht is something that many of us dream of. Now, that dream can become a reality thanks to Sunborn Yacht Hotel - which happens to be in London Docklands rather than Monte Carlo. 

Hyperion Hotel, Hamburg

Hyperion Hotel, Hamburg
After our super cool stay at Superbude Hotel and Hostel, we headed over the city to spend our remaining days in a 5-star hotel. The Hyperion. Handily located within walking distance of the central Hauptbahnhof, The Hyperion looked...
Fierro hotel Buenos Aires
  Arriving at Ezeiza airport in the late evening, we needed to get to our hotel. No obvious buses or trains were anywhere to be seen so taxi really is your only option. Luckily a desk in the centre of...

The Abbey Hotel, Bath

Abbey Hotel, Bath
Our lodgings for the trip to Koffmann & Mr White’s  couldn’t have been better placed - in the exact building that houses the restaurant. The Abbey Hotel sits in the shadow of the stunning Bath Abbey right in the centre of town, location box firmly ticked. The Abbey Hotel,...

Hotel Astoria 7

Hotel Astoria 7 San Sebastian
Accomodation in San Sebastian is hard to find. I don’t mean that in the sense of hotels and hostels are hidden away, it’s hard to find reasonably priced places to stay during your trip. Many of the old town locations are incredibly expensive and understandably so with many being...
The Ryder Grill at The Belfry
Drifting away from our usual surroundings of the East Midlands, we took a detour down the A42 to Sutton Coldfield, around half an hours drive away. The reason? We had been hearing good things about a certain place famous for golf, it even has hosted The Ryder Cup. Now,...
The Garden Bar and Restaurant, Sketchley Grange
All meals during our two-night stay at Sketchley Grange would be accompanied by dinner in the restaurant. The restaurant is located just behind the actual bar. A menu stands in the doorway and a friendly member of staff is on hand to escort you to your table. Booking is...
Sketchley Grange Hinckley Leicestershire
We took a slightly unusual step in our travelling life by heading a mere 30 minutes down the road to a local hotel and spa. Sketchley Grange is a hotel based in Burbage, an area of Hinckley that we wouldn’t expect to find a four-star hotel and spa experience....
Adagio Basel City Hotel
Aparthotel Adagio Basel City, Hammerstrasse 46, Clara, 4058 Basel, Switzerland Switzerland has a habit of making you lose weight - from the pocket. That’s an issue when it comes to decent accomodation in one of Europe’s most expensive countries. We searched across Basel for some decent dwellings to keep a...
Coq au Riesling
You didn’t think that it would be just the one recipe, did you? After the success of the ham and goats cheese salad starter it seemed rude not to have a go at a main course. Once again my mind ticked over with thoughts of what could I make...
