The Good Hotel Guide is the leading independent guide to hotels in Great Britain and Ireland. It is written for the reader seeking impartial advice on finding a good place to stay. Hotels cannot buy their entry as they do in most rival guides. No money changes hands, and the editors and inspectors do not accept free hospitality on their anonymous visits to hotels. This year The Good Hotel Guide proudly celebrates its 39th year of publication with another careful selection of over 900 superb places to stay. In the past quarter of a century, it has established a unique position as a reliable and independent guide, which has won more media praise than any other hotel guide on the market.
Whether your taste runs to luxury castles or simple B&Bs, The Good Hotel Guide has the answer. The entries are based on readers' recommendations backed up by independent, expert inspections. The guide specializes in hotels of individual character, mostly owner-managed, in outstanding locations. It is unusual in its ruthless independence and honesty. It tells it like it is. For those wanting a break from chain-managed hotels, it is invaluable.
