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...
Something that i’ve always wanted to do is cook abroad. I love restaurants and street food but to pass up the cracking selection of ingredients in the markets around Europe is just crazy. While in Colmar we were staying at the Appart’hôtel Odalys La Rose d’Argent which houses a...
Hub Hotel at Westminster Abbey, London
21 Tothill Street, Westminster A weekend in London normally means expensive accommodation, if you plan to stay in the centre of town. If you can’t stretch to The Langham or The Ritz, don’t worry! There are affordable options across the city in a variety of areas. Premier Inn have come...
Pierre Koffmann Pistachio Souffle
Koffmann’s in Knightsbridge is sadly no more. Due to the redevelopment of The Berkeley Hotel the restaurant had to close its doors after 6 years, prior to that Pierre Koffmann had won three Michelin stars at his La Tante Claire restaurant in Chelsea (and later The Berkeley) and had...
