It will be 6 GMs now. The GM told us that he was leaving in January, whilst we were complaining, which made it feel even less like he cared.

Soneva called my review "malicious", whereas several...

Let me give you some: I don't like the rooms; they're far too dark. The Belmond Cadogan rooms have a very Beaumont feel, yet much easier on the eyes and offer much more natural light. If The...

My wife says the same, but often after I've done something stupid. So I hear it on a daily basis.

It was tough trying to find anywhere Zika friendly, that's warm in Feb/March and somewhere we...

Both Brown's and Baglioni have as much in common with The Lanesborough as Donald Trump shares compassion with Mother Teresa. The Lanesborough is a fine hotel, Browns and Baglioni are many things,...

We didn't have a great stay in Cap Ferrat in 2017, but I'd still actually go back, as strange as it seems from what I'm about to say. The bathroom flooded and we had to make repeated calls for...

I've stayed in La Reserve Ramatuelle twice: 2012 and 2019. It's the perfect 2-3 night destination for doing very little. They have a new beach club that's about 10 minutes drive away, but it wasn't...

I'm looking forward to it too, as it will be our second attempt to go. Last year some airline strikes caused us to cancel when we were due to visit after Ballyfin. If you're in the area, this is...

One of my blog readers (not sure if he's an FTer) actually said yesterday that he loved Villa Lario. He reads my blog, so I can only assume his taste is impeccable and we should believe him.

As with anywhere at the Thanda price range, it's entirely negotiable. Thanda opened at $15k/n, yet were offering discounts as much as 50% off; their rack rate has since gone to $25k, yet they were...

I feel in this case it says more about the property than Aventine. I have written some charming reviews in my time, but never experienced being banned. I was told by Singita that on my profile it...
