I used to stay in London once a week – often at The Connaught.  Often for work, sometimes for pleasure.  The best of what England has to offer, all within walking distance.  The food, entertainment, people, parks, sports and shopping.

When a hotel makes an appearance in the Financial Times, it’s normally because an owner has their paintings confisciated for tax evasion, some guy with nukes wants to meet another guy with nukes in Singapore, or one’s going on the

As we departed Coworth Park, I was reminded of the frantic beginning of The Haunting of Hill House, where the family is scrambling to escape, with no time to do anything but flee from the present horror.  Such was the rush of

If you ever need to define first world problems, it’s laying in bed on a Saturday morning in The Mews, The Connaught’s townhouse-in-a-hotel suite, debating with your wife whether this £15,000/n room is better than The Apartment, The Connaught’s even

Finished.  The finished article; nice guys finish last; I’ve finished, he’s finished, they’re Finnish.  What a word.  My background is in software development (sadly, staring at my screen all day and hoping words fall out of me and onto this

Four Seasons Hampshire  Room type: Manor Room Duration: 23rd > 25th February, 2020 This is like the LGBTQ of the luxury world, as everyone is welcome – including coronavirus, assuming I read it properly If ever there was a hotel

The Langley, Slough Room type: Brew House Garden Room Duration: 14th > 16th February, 2020 It’s a new year and a new era.  They promised us not much would change upon leaving the EU, but if that’s the case, why

The Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath Room type: Deluxe Room Duration: 13th > 15th October, 2018 It’s rare to find a property like The Royal Crescent in Bath.  I have never stayed somewhere with such low expectations, but found them lowered

There are many things I define myself by.  Son, brother, husband-to-be, worlds most handsome man with a blog called The Good, The Bad and the Luxurious.  I also happen to have stayed in almost every luxury hotel in London.  Two

The Baglioni Hotel, London Room type: De Vere Suite Duration: 12th > 13th January, 2018 Booked with: Dorsia Travel As part of my escapades into staying in all 22 AMEX FHR properties in London, I am now down to scraping the barrel.

  • A few months after opening (with Dorsia clients being their first ever guests) I decided to check out Bulgari Rome. Fortunately, they have moved away from the copy/paste formula of Milan to London to Paris and created something much more…Italian. Unfortunately that means I can’t copy/paste my Paris write-up. The review will be out next Friday. @bulgarihotels
  • As upgrades go, this four-bedroom ocean villa @amanyara_resort we stayed in last week was certainly one of my better ones. I was ill and passed out for most of the stay, so will have to go back again to truly experience it. Five bedroom next time, please and thank you.
  • With our upcoming trip to Turks and Caicos, I’m reminded how bad I am at this Instagram malarkey.  I’ve not even posted of our last trip to the Caribbean, from March, so with all the enthusiasm of someone sat on the electric chair here’s @jumbybayresort
  • Little Dix might sound like a sub-genre on Pornhub but it’s actually a beautiful resort in the British Virgin Islands. You learn something new every day.
  • If you ignore the service, food and anything at all related to the humans, Necker Island is a majestic place worth visiting.
  • With three hot tubs on the Branson Estate on Moskito Island, it’s really helped turn my two year old into a well rounded individual who now expects it as a minimum.

  • Describing @oljogi is tough. It’s 50% incredible and 51% insane. You can’t argue with maths.
  • The number of animals in this picture is the same number of game drives I went on during my stay at Singita Serengeti House: zero. It was just too relaxing to want to leave.

As upgrades go, this four-bedroom ocean villa @amanyara_resort we stayed in last week was certainly one of my better ones. I was ill and passed out for most of the stay, so will have to go back again to truly experience it. Five bedroom next time, please and thank you.

With three hot tubs on the Branson Estate on Moskito Island, it’s really helped turn my two year old into a well rounded individual who now expects it as a minimum.

The number of animals in this picture is the same number of game drives I went on during my stay at Singita Serengeti House: zero. It was just too relaxing to want to leave.
