Looking for somewhere to stay?

We recommend Malmaison who are pioneers of the modern metropolitan townhouse hotel, with an emphasis on chic, high quality, surroundings. Food and drink is the heart and soul of each hotel; their Bar & Grills are all popular destinations within their local areas.

Or for something a bit more simple, but sophisticated, try Hotel du Vin. Informal yet luxurious. Elegant yet unpretentious. It's Bistro du Vin serves French classics with a British twist. And, thanks to the close relationships with vineyards and winemakers, the cosy, low-lit bars offer many of the world’s finest and best-kept secret wines.
