Contemporary, stylish accommodation
They're friendly, unpretentious, a little eccentric and highly individual. Some would say Britain's boutique hotels reflect the British character, they aim to surprise and amuse - just like the British themselves, really.
At the opulent One Devonshire Gardens you can eat at one of Glasgow's best modern restaurants before retiring to a room full of luxurious Victoriana and fresh flowers. Or experience fine dining at the Drawing Room in Wales - the exquisite Georgian restaurant with rooms is a discreet rural retreat where attention to detail is paramount.
And you won't need a car - boutique hotels tend to be in the heart of a city. Take London's Parkes Hotel, only 100 metres from Harrods which offers five star service in a warm friendly family environment. Alternatively, Browns Hotel is London's oldest hotel and has just been given a makeover. It offers spacious bedrooms with a refined English charm offset by sophisticated modern touches.
