Informative and Consistant

The AA Hotel Guide 2012 is the third one I have purchased, the previous one's being 2009 & 2010. Overall the guide is easy to read and understand and of the hotels that I have visited as a result of my research, all have been accurate.
I do however have one thing I do not like about the new 2012 edition.
Previous editions were divided / categorized by county and this I found extremely helpful and easy to find a town that may be I hadn't visited before. The new edition is constructed alphabetically by town / village which is all good and well providing you know where all the towns / villages of the uk are. Quite often I look for a county I would like to visit and then research the towns within it, many of which I have never heard of. Now I need to research many pages of towns to establish which county they are in. There is no doubt if you have a town / village in mind, you can go straight to it, but otherwise its a bit of a trawl and quite frustrating.
