    The ibis Hotel Birmingham: ibis Lates On Tour

    The other week I was kindly contacted on behalf of ibis Hotels with an exciting opportunity to attend an exclusive gig at the ibis Hotel, Birmingham. In partnership between ibis Hotels and The Roundhouse which supports the Teenager Cancer Trust, ‘ibis Lates’ was formed as a series of gigs to be held in ibis hotel lobbies around the UK to raise money. On Thursday May 11th, I got to witness first hand some fantastic regional up-and-coming artists and DJ’s including the brilliant, Birmingham-based Ekkah. It really was a great night. A room for the night Straight after work, I raced to the hotel where they kindly lent me a room for the night. This…

    Ox Pasture Hall Hotel Review – Scarborough

    Ox Pasture Hall Hotel is gorgeous four star country hotel that I was invited to review late last year. For some reason it’s taken me a while to post about it but I couldn’t not show you, it’s absolutely stunning. During our trip I took some beautiful pictures which will tell you all you need to know about the place. Located near Scarborough, it took us around two and half hour hours to drive there from Birmingham and during our one night stay, we visited the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and ate some pretty great grub. The hotel really looked after us during our visit, I would highly recommend a…

    The Montcalm Royal London House – Hotel Review

    I wasn’t going to blog about this hotel at first. The main reason being I wanted to keep it personal as it was for my ten year anniversary getaway. But after spending a night at Montcalm Royal London House on Finsbury Square, we were completely blown away by the service, the room, and the general handling of our booking. I can genuinely say that our experience with the hotel was borderline faultless which I find is a very rare occurrence. The Montcalm is actually a chain of hotels and I’ve stayed in one before when I visited London a few years back. This specific hotel has only been open for a few months, so…

    The Genting Hotel – Robata Grill & Santai Spa Review

    Imagine this. You’re booked into the Genting Hotel – Resorts World and the PR lady sends you over an itinerary which details your experience from start to finish.  Dinner at Robata on Friday night, a luxury night’s sleep inside a superior room with plush lighting, fluffy robes, a goody bag… the works! The next day consists of a hearty breakfast and a spa day with complimentary treatments at Santai Spa. It sounds like a dream doesn’t it? As far as hotel stays go – I was completely in awe of the hotel, our dining experience at Robata and the spa day which has been highly recommended to me by friends on many…

    One Night At The AC Hotel – Birmingham & Luxury Stay Competition

    I can’t believe this AC Hotel Birmingham post is my 15th hotel review as a blogger, it still doesn’t feel real even after 4 years in the game. Even now, I squeal with excitement every time I get invited to luxury superior suites for review purposes. I mean, it really is a little bit crazy that I get to do this for a hobby. Excitement and enthusiasm aside for a moment, there’s now a running joke that I make my boyfriend stand in the corner (out of shot) while I’m taking photographs of the hotel rooms. It’s like that scene out of the Blair Witch Project where they’re made to face…
