Hotel Stories with a Twist:

My website, www.hilaryfinlay.com covers personal reviews and recommendations of a selection of the many hotels and guesthouses that I have had the pleasure to visit over the years. The properties featured are located in various locations around the globe that I have visited over the years.

My selection process is very simple.  I include hotels that I like. Diversity is also important.  Hotels are featured if they are unique and have a distinctive character.  In other words they stand out from the crowd as being special places to stay.  Hotels regularly proclaim themselves as unique and far too often they disappoint; The chosen few on my list cover a broad range from traditional heritage properties to chic, trendy modern hotels. More recently I have included hotels suitable for families since I am now periodically a Grandma on Tour.  The chosen properties showcase different styles and grades. The common denominator is that they are all delightful places to stay, and you, the guest, will hopefully have a memorable experience to look back on with fondness.

Hilary’s Blog:

In addition to these Reviews you might find some interesting information on my regular Travel Blog, which periodically features special offers or some other little unknown facts about the hotels or their locality.   I also include some restaurant reviews of some special meals that I have enjoyed.  Feel free to comment as I am always open to new ideas.

Happy reading and remember these are proper stories and not just sound bites!!
