Good Hotel Guide in October

The Good Hotel Guide 2019: Great Britain & Ireland, will launch on 8th October 2018. 
 Co-edited by Adam Raphael and Ian Belcher, the new 2019 edition features 860 properties in total, the highest number ever, with 424 main entries chosen for their exceptional hospitality.
 The editors select entries purely on merit, based on visits by a team of experienced inspectors and reports from trusted readers.  Hotels featured within the Guide are selected solely on merit. They do not pay to be included and no hospitality is accepted,.Reports by members of the public are carefully scrutinised and graded by the GHG’s editorial team.
Each year ten César awards are presented to ten of the Guide’s outstanding hoteliers. Named after César Ritz, the famed hotelier whose name symbolises exemplary hospitality, these are the Oscars of the hotel industry. 
According to co-editors Adam Raphael and Ian Belcher: “This year’s Guide features 17 new main entries and 57 new shortlisted entries, demonstrating how the UK hotel industry is constantly innovating. Our aim is to showcase properties that demonstrate flair and really go the extra mile for their guests.”
The highly-esteemed 2019 Editor’s Choice section highlights the top 10 hotels in 16 categories – This Year’s Discoveries, Romantic, Spas, Seaside, Restaurants-with-Rooms, Dog-friendly, Country House, Gardens, Rooms with a View, B&Bs, Value, Pubs-with-Rooms, Family, Walking, Quirky and Weddings. All hotels are listed alphabetically, by village or town, with a photograph, and all of the Guide’s main entries include a full review with accompanying contact details.
A Shortlist section features an additional 436 properties.  These include new entries of a notable standard and other properties that continue to receive positive feedback from customers.
The Good Hotel Guide 2019 is also available online at There are a further four online-only Editor’s Choice hotel categories: Fishing, Golf, Eco-friendly and Historic.
