For stunning coastal views: the Belle Tout Lighthouse
If you’re looking for a hotel filled to the brim with character, then the Belle Tout Lighthouse is the one for you. Located on a cliff top in Eastbourne, Sussex, the hotel is a converted lighthouse which offers breathtaking views of the English Channel. The rooms of the hotel are fairly small but wonderfully decorated, with beautiful views making them feel much more spacious than they are. A guest lounge provides you with panoramic views, as well as a sociable area in which to mingle with others staying at the hotel.
For luxury in London: The Dorchester
For the ultimate in British chic, the Dorchester in Mayfair is truly a must-visit. There are various rooms and suites available; all decorated lavishly with four-poster beds, his-and-her sinks and luxury furnishings as a norm. A number of fabulous restaurants and bars also await you in the 5* Dorchester, which are perfect for relaxing in – and perhaps even doing a bit of celebrity-spotting. With a spa also available, you may find that you sacrifice exploring the capital city in favour of staying in the hotel!
