No.1 Pery Square is thrilled to announce that it has been chosen as Editor’s Choice in The Good Hotel Guide 2018. 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.
Adam & Caroline Raphael, who edit the guide, are award-winning journalists. Caroline, a former BBC researcher and a travel writer, is editor-in-chief. She has worked on the Guide for more than 30 years. Adam, who has worked for The Guardian, The Observer, the BBC and the Economist, is the guide’s marketing director.
The Guide specialises in small owner-managed hotels and B&Bs in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Channel Islands and in Continental Europe. It includes budget B&Bs, good-value hotels as well as luxurious country houses.
The Good Hotel Guide Review
Patricia Roberts’s stylish town house hotel sits in a row of Georgian terraces in the centre, nearly within paint-splattering distance of the art gallery. The Grade I listed building has been ‘attractively restored’: there’s an open fire in the bar; books and candles sit on window sills; exposed brick and original stonework bring atmosphere to the vaulted basement spa. ‘From the very pleasant first-floor restaurant, we enjoyed watching the world pass by.’
