    Guilty Pleasures When Travelling | Travel Linkup

    I have to admit to a host of guilty pleasures when travelling – sunset cocktails, morning coffees in bed, exploring local supermarkets, outrageously delicious lunch feasts and late dinners, but my guiltiest is probably the most pedestrian of them all.

    Luxury Hotel Cornwall The Scarlet Newquay

    Long leisurely soaks in beautiful bathrooms and hot tubs. Oh, following it up by an afternoon nap. The best nap of them all, by leagues. So, for the travel linkup this month, I decided to indulge in a walk down memory lane, and share some of my most memorable soaks – often accompanied by a mountain of bubbles. [NB: Press stays are noted with a double star.]

    Where to stay in Grenada | The True Blue Bay Boutique Resort

    Want to know where to stay in Grenada? True Blue Bay is something rather unique – a boutique resort on the island of Grenada, replete with Dodgy Dock overlooking a marina, a rum shack, friendly resident cats, a litany of nooks to sip cocktails in and the unique sound of tree frogs that croaked through the night. Disclaimer: We were guests of Pure Grenada and True Blue Bay, but all enthusing and rum cocktail enjoyment is very much my own.

    Where to Stay In Rheims | Champagne, France

    On this trip to Rheims, instead of simply visiting as a day trip from Paris, we stayed overnight in the Continental Hotel, a very short walk through beautiful gardens from the train station. I was a guest of the Régionale du Tourisme Grand-Est and I would 100% stay in this beautiful hotel again on my own. Where to stay in Rheims

    We wheeled our suitcases straight from the train station – so fresh from Paris you could practically smell our breakfast baguettes  – and through the gardens to our home for the evening – the Continental Hotel.

    The Laura Ashley Iliffe Hotel – An Afternoon Tea Fuelled UK Staycation

    Sometimes in this life, you just need to stand still, take stock and appreciate elegant simplicity with a couple of friends. Our stay at the Laura Ashley Iliffe hotel was just that – an overnight that was beautifully easy. Disclosure: we were guests of Laura Ashley but all cheesily posed photos and musings are very much my own. Where to stay in Coventry

    Where to stay near Stansted Airport: Hampton by Hilton Hotel Review

    We’ve all done it. Booked a crazy early flight, or a flight that lands so late that you’ll struggle to get the last train from Stansted Airport and across London to get home. It’s taken me years not to trust the ‘oh, it’ll be ok’ thought when booking and settle on one hotel where to stay near Stansted Airport.

    Where to stay near Stansted Airport

    I can’t tell you how much of a relief it is to step off a plane late at night and walk through the foyer of the Hampton by Hilton hotel. Or, wake up early in the morning between the crisp, fresh sheets and meander over to the Airport check-in desks.
