This year's Good Hotel Guide
was published on Monday, a veritable bible of the best accommodation in Great Britain and Ireland featuring the very best hotels, inns and bed & breakfasts from around the nation.
Established in 1978, this 42nd edition features 830 properties from as little as £74 per room per night, all the way up to the finest luxury hotels.
Every year 10 César Awards - named after César Ritz - are awarded to a selection of hotels which have demonstrated excellence in their field. For 2020 these range from North House in Cowes, Isle of Wight, voted [I]Newcomer of the Year[/I], to Argyl and Bute's The Airds Hotel in Port Appin, voted [I]Scottish Luxury Hotel of the Year[/I] via [I]B&B of the Year[/I] Underleigh House in Hope, Derbyshire.
It's a beast of a tome and a must-buy for anyone keen on a staycation. From cosy boltholes to luxury escapes, I've much enjoyed folding down page corners and highlighting my must visits!
First on my list is a London staycation at previous César winner Artist Residence, followed by weekend escapes to Buckinghamshire's Hartwell House and the new Pig at Bridge Place near Canterbury.
