Travel Reports - Hotels & Restaurants
This is a list of my custom hotel and restaurant reports. I have mentioned in the past the occasional hotel or restaurant, but not in the form of a dedicated report.
This page lists my custom reports. It's early days, but as they say "from small acorns ….".
My first reports, before actually deciding to write dedicated reports were:-
Château de Besseuil, Clessé (2018)
Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud
Hotel Balneario Las Arenas, Valencia (end 2018-early 2019)
However my first attempts at reporting only on a hotel and/or restaurant are listed below:-
NH Collection Palacio de Aranjuez (2019)
Gran Meliá Palacio de las Duques, Madrid (2019)
Barceló Cabo de Gata (2019)
Meliá Barcelona Sky (2019)
La Pyramide Patrick Henriroux, Vienne, France (2019)
Other places we have stayed in, but never reported on were:-
In late 2018 we stayed in the Hôtel La Pinede in Amélie-les-Bains (Pyrénées Orientales), a simple but efficiently run 3-star hotel with an excellent and very health-oriented restaurant.
In mid-2018 we stayed in the Relais de Chambord, an excellently situated 4-star hotel right in the grounds of the Château de Chambord.
For one night in July 2018 we stayed in Hôtel L'Yeuse, a small 4-star hotel hidden away in the Cognac region of France.
For one night in July 2018 we stayed in the 4-star Parador of Lerma, situated in a Spanish ducal palace near Burgos.
In late 2017 we stayed in the Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao, a very pleasant 5-star hotel right in front of the Guggenheim.
Over Christmas and New Year 2014-2015 we stayed in the modern 4-star Parador of Cadiz, probably the best hotel within the old city.
