I’ve written before about things that make a place special for me. Places that I’ve found particularly friendly. The common factor in all my favourite places, is their genuine care for their guests. So I was very pleased to find another one recently. We  had a short break for MrS’s birthday and stayed at Coul House Hotel in Contin, Ross-shire (that’s north of Inverness and on the road to Ullapool). This hotel is personally owned and managed, and it shows; there was a genuine welcome and interest in making our stay go well. This doesn’t mean that large glossy five stars, or even budget chain hotels can’t provide a friendly welcome. If the staff are well trained and happy in their work then they provide a great guest experience.

So which places have made the cut for me?

The Traddock, Austwick

Spicers Balfour, Brisbane

The Bear’s Paw, Warmingham.

GoGlasgowUrban Hotel, Glasgow

Tiroran House, Mull

are some that come to mind. This is not an exhaustive list, just some places we’ve enjoyed relatively recently. Hopefully I’ll be able to add to the list, and when I do I’ll let you know.

Where have you loved? Don’t let great service go unnoticed. Spread that love.
