I’ve seen a lot of hotel rooms in some 16 years of travel writing.
And I saw a whole lot more over the summer months on a journey that took me from a castle in North Wales to a country haven for foodies in rural Lancashire [pictured above].
The reason? Telegraph Travel has been beefing up its hotel coverage and I picked up a fair few of the reviews around the Northwest and North Wales.
The bulk were in Liverpool and have been appearing steadily — digital first, of course.
The home to the majestic, Unesco-listed waterfront offered a colourful range of properties from budget basics to a Titanic-themed hotel.
But the stand out place was a night at 2 Blackburne Terrace, a hidden-gem boutique guesthouse in the city’s Georgian district.
Here’s a sample of what I said about it:
Set in a late-Georgian townhouse, this is very much a bespoke experience with frissons of flamboyant design and theatrical flourishes from the hosts to foster a very personal ambiance.
And here some of the reviews.
For autumn I will be packing my reviewer’s notebook for Carmarthenshire and Hull.
Please drop me a line with any suggestions.
