The only independently inspected English-language accommodation guide to small and charming hotels with around 500 selective entries, each of which with at least one colour photo. Every entry is more than just a bed for the night: it's an experience, worth planning a holiday around, or going out of your way for. Continuing the series relaunch, Italy now joins the 'Charming Small Hotels Series' alongside Britain, France and Spain with beautifully redesigned insides and a larger format. No hotel pays to be in the guide.
Fiona Duncan, who writes the weekly Hotel Guru column in The Sunday Telegraph, can claim to be the most respected hotel writer in Britain.
