The Good Hotel Guide 2018 announces new ‘This Year’s Discoveries’

The Good Hotel Guide 2018: Great Britain & Ireland has highlighted its top 10 hotels in 16 categories as part of its annual ‘This Year’s Discoveries’ supplement.

The properties which are recognised in the guide fall under the categories of Romantic, Spas, Seaside, Restaurants-with-rooms, Dog-friendly, Country House, Gardens, Rooms with a View, B&Bs, Value, Pubs-with-rooms, Family, Walking, Boutique and Weddings.

Four additional categories are available online only, and include Fishing, Golf, Eco-friendly and Historic.

This Year’s Discoveries entrants have all been mentioned in the guide for offering ‘something special’ – from The Pipe and Glass Inn in South Dalton, Yorkshire, which serves deep-yellow scrambled eggs on home-baked bread for breakfast, to the secluded Llanthony Priory Hotel, with a private ivy-clad medieval tower, in Monmouthshire.

The Restaurant James Sommerin in Penarth, near Cardiff, was recognised for its menus as well as its bedrooms which have floor-to-ceiling windows with sea views. In Bath, No.15 Great Pulteney, spread across three Georgian townhouses, was commended for its ‘eclectic bedrooms’, prize-winning artwork and silver-plated teapots.

Other hotels that have been commended within this category are the boho chic The Pig at Combe, Devon, ‎the Sign of the Angel in the National Trust village of Lacock, Wiltshire, and the seafood-orientated The Crab & Lobster in Sidlesham, Sussex.

Welsh spa lodge B&B, Coes Faen in Barmouth, Gwynedd, is recognised and in Scotland, two properties stand out – the Shieldaig Lodge (think tweeds, beside Loch Gairloch in the Scottish Highlands and The Inn at Loch Tummel, which is a refurbished 19th Century coaching inn in Strathtummel, Perth and Kinross.

Just four hotels have been in the guide every year since it was launched. They are Ballymaloe House in County Cork; Currarevagh House in County Galway; Lastingham Grange in Yorkshire and Rothay Manor in Cumbria.

Co-editors Adam Raphael and M. Astella Saw said: “This year’s 40th anniversary is a milestone for the Good Hotel Guide and we are proud of the fact that there is still a place for a published hotel guide, even though the Guide’s online presence is growing.

“The guide provides the chance to recognise the UK and Ireland’s most revered and wholly independent properties, from refined gastropubs and plush country house hotels to new discoveries offering something special.”
