From sleepy inns to manor-house hotels for fabulous occasions, from island boltholes to the odd jaw-dropping castle, each of our places combines character with comfort and a great welcome. A weekend break in a historic city, a night away on business, a family holiday by the sea - there's something for everyone here. You'll dine well, too: Michelin stars sprinkle themselves throughout this 13th edition, and there are plenty of chefs who put seasonality and provenance at the top of their list.
We are committed to the small hotels of Britain, run by enterprising people who do what they do best. We look for what we like; we celebrate the beautiful and the unusual. Our combination of fresh honest write-ups, colour photographs, clear symbols, excellent maps, clear directions and quick reference indices is what makes our guides so popular with readers - and helps put British Hotels & Inns at the top of the best-seller list.
