Well I am just in love. And I don’t know whether it’s with London or nature or hotels or Marriott or all of the above but all four combined created the Bee & Bee Hotel at St. Ermin’s and it’s just fantastic. The Bee & Bee Hotel (adorable name) sits…

My hotel Instagram faves #5

I love Instagram, it’s definitely my favourite of all the social media platforms. As we all know pictures speaks louder than words and from the comfort of our couch/bed/desk/train seat we can travel the world and, in my case, explore the world of beautiful hotels in far flung places. And some…

Trump vs Trump

Donald Trump is a man of many faults, a lot of which you hear coming out of his mouth at presidential debates, but what you can’t fault him on is his hotels. Well, not Trump International Doonbeg in County Clare anyway because the second I arrived I fell in love…
