Fairmont Nanjing, China

I've used this hotel a number of times for work related visits and I'm never disappointed. The Fairmont Nanjing is a spectacular sight to marvel at from the outside - in fact some say the glass fronted skyscraper bears a resemblance to a Chinese lantern - and on the inside it offers smart and stylish...

Sheraton Jiangyin, China

Situated a stone's throw from the main G2 expressway, the Sheraton is perfect for my flying work-related visits to the city. Bedrooms are quiet, spacious and most importantly (after a 3 hour drive) comfortable. You'll find all the usual features too, flat screen TV, decent wi-fi, desk, well stocked mini-bar and a walk in wardrobe.... Continue Reading →

Shanghai Maglev, China

If you're heading over to Shanghai any time soon, you've just got to take a trip on the Maglev.

We were whisked from our Summerhouse to the water park's "VIP" entrance for 10am (opening time) and managed to beat the crowds to all... Continue Reading →

Dar Al Masyaf, Dubai

The level of service from the moment we taxied up the hotel drive to the moment we vacated was quite simply superb - we literally felt like royalty. We booked an Arabian Summerhouse Deluxe for our...

Taj Mahal, India

I've heard one or two people say "never mix business with pleasure" - what a load of rubbish! I was visiting an exhibition in Greater Noida (about an hour or so outside of New Delhi) and due to our travel arrangements, it meant I would be in India for the weekend. That also resulted in...

Hipping Hall, UK

This stunning restaurant with rooms is situated near the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale and the spectacular Ingleton Waterfalls, it's ideal for those wishing to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. I've been visiting this place for almost 10 years now and it's still just as good (if not better) than it was when I... Continue Reading →
