  • Cedar Manor Hotel in Windermere

    Cedar Manor Hotel in Windermere

    I was warmly greeted by its owner, Jonathon, and immediately offered a cup of tea. He made the tea himself and brought it to the lounge. I had noticed a beautiful stained glass church-style window behind the bar at the far end of the lounge. I was not surprised to discover that the house and been built in 1854. It was designed by J S Crowther who had also designed the church of St Mary next door and Holehird, a mansion on the outskirts of Windermere. Crowther is most well-known for his restoration and repair of Manchester Cathedral.

    My first experience of a Point A Hotel was very good. At Point A in Shoreditch, London I felt my every need had been catered for – a good night’s sleep followed by a nutritious breakfast.

  • The Northgate, a Hotel in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

    The Northgate, a Hotel in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

    On a recent visit to the lovely Suffolk town of Bury St Edmunds I stayed at The Northgate a luxurious, yet not outrageously expensive boutique hotel close to the city centre. As soon as I entered the reception area I got the impression that someone really cared about this hotel. I sensed that a lot of thought had been given to the decoration of the rooms. In the lounge areas and restaurant beautifully blended pastel colours create a pleasing atmosphere that draws its guests in, invites them to make themselves comfortable. In the bar area bright orange seats amongst the creams and beiges created a sense of light-heartedness and enjoyment ...

  • The Gradiali Hotel in Palanga, Lithuania

    The Gradiali Hotel in Palanga, Lithuania

    As I was only at the Gradiali Hotel for one night and, to be honest, more interested in a walk through the pine woods to the beach, I did not have time to try any of the many on offer therapies and treatments on offer. But I did have time to enjoy a very nice meal in the hotel restaurant. This was followed by a very good night’s sleep – it is really peaceful here.
