The Good Hotel Guide 2006 : By following the advice of a trusted friend, you can find the secret places that most guidebooks never find - the superb English country mansion, the perfect guest house beside a church. For twenty-nine years the Good Hotel Guide has specialized in discovering such places for its thousands of devoted readers. The Guide is THE resource, year after year, that Britons rely on for the very best advice on accommodations in their own land. The editors of The Guide combine their own research with comments from regular contributors and hundreds of volunteer reader-correspondents to help them find the finest lodgings of character, comfort, and value throughout the British Isles and Ireland. No advertising, complimentary lodging, or services are accepted by the reviewers; correspondents include the likes of David Lodge and Jan Morris. From budget accommodations to family owned, five-star hotels, The Guide features only recommended establishments. Hotels and inns that fail to deliver good service and value are dropped. Detailed full-color maps and lists of special hotels for every taste and budget make The Guide essential for planning the perfect trip.
