The best hotels in the world? Sunday Times Travel magazine feature

I was recently asked to contribute to the Sunday Times Travel magazine’s Best hotels in the world feature.

I stay in more than 100 hotels every year. So I’ve seen more than my fair share of the bad ones. But I’m also lucky enough to have stayed in some truly great ones, where staff practically bend over backwards to make things perfect, where the bed is comfy, the food is good and the light switches and sockets are all in the right places!

I selected some of my favourites* for this feature. See which hotels made the cut in the May issue of the magazine, on newsstands now and online soon. And let me know if you agree, or if we’ve missed some!


*SPOILER ALERT: You’re in here Blythswood Square, The Dean and Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage.


My work in Sunday Times Travel magazine

My work has appeared in the last two issues of Sunday Times Travel magazine.

In the July issue I reviewed the chic Hotel Crayon in Paris and the stylish Clarence Hotel in Dublin as part of The 50 Best City Hotels in Europe feature.

In the August issue I reviewed two of Cornwall’s fabulous hotels, the Watergate Bay and the Idle Rocks for the Europe’s 50 Best Beach Hotels round-up.

Look out for more of my work, on Croatia and Australia, in future issues.
