From sleepy inns with rooms to manor-house hotels for fabulous occasions, each of our places combines character with comfort and a big 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 eat well, too: Michelin stars sprinkle themselves throughout this 12th edition, and there are plenty of chefs who put provenance and seasonality 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, and we celebrate the beautiful and the unusual. It is the combination of fresh, honest write-ups, colour photographs, clear symbols, excellent maps, clear directions and quick reference indices that makes our guides so popular with readers - and helps put British Hotels & Inns at the top of the best-seller list.
