Grand Central Hotel, Belfast


The Cavendish, London

This a good upscale hotel in a convenient location for those on business in the Mayfair and Piccadilly areas – and further afield given its proximity to two central Underground stations. The hotel’s understated style is complemented by the staff who were unfailingly cheerful and helpful

NH Collection Koln Mediapark, Cologne Germany

If ever I return to Cologne, this is where I will stay. The location is perfect – an easy connection from the train station, a quick walk into the city and surrounded by a park with jogging trails.

Aerotel, London Heathrow

I had an early morning flight from the same terminal and Aerotel provided the perfect overnight solution. The rooms make clever use of the limited space and the ‘soft lighting‘ is designed to provide a sound night’s sleep.

Wilde Aparthotel By Staycity London Covent Garden

This aparthotel was stylish without trying too hard and I liked some of the quirky artwork and touches like copies of Oscar Wilde's books stacked on the bedside table.

Four Seasons, Hampshire

It doesn't get much more quintessentially English than this, with the long drive through the grounds and staff on the door dressed in country attire setting the tone from the start. A great country escape for impressive meetings and events, and the app is a useful addition too.

Citizenm Amstel, Amsterdam

A brilliant and affordable alternative to more traditional hotels, this is a relaxing bolthole for a business trip with a convenient location for exploring Amsterdam’s charming canal belt.

Amman Marriott, Amman, Jordan

This trusty Marriott offers a reliable and comfortable retreat that’s well located for all the key spots in this thriving, inviting city.

Live! By Loews Arlington, Texas

Itʼs an interesting new concept from Loews, with an appealing design and excellent location for leisure and business guests alike. Its proximity to DFW airport is a real boon and is already helping deliver ‘excellent’ meetings and events bookings. The staff were fantastic throughout and full of enthusiasm for this flagship property.

Staybridge Suites, Manchester

Everything ticks over very smoothly at the hotel and staff were warm and welcoming, which creates a nice atmosphere; add excellent business facilities and it’s a good place to stay. It is worth asking for a corner room to take full advantage of the views.
