We’ve found some of Britain’s best and worst places to stay for sun, sea and sand, based on our expert inspections.
You can trust our reviews. All our hotel inspections take place anonymously. We book a standard double room online, just as you would, and we sample the hotel’s facilities, just as you would. We never let on that we are from Which?
Unlike other UK publications, we take no freebies or advertising.
That means no special treatment, no reviewer upgrades and no opportunity for the hotel to influence our verdict. And no matter how badly the hotel fares, we will always publish the review, warts and all.
Royal Albion Hotel, Brighton
This Grade II listed building may occupy a prime seafront location in Brighton, but it’s one of the worst hotels we’ve ever inspected. Read the full to find out why.
Bodysgallen Hall Hotel, Conwy
This luxury hotel and spa sits in a secluded setting two miles south of Llandudno, with views to Conwy Castle. It’s a grand, Grade I listed National Trust-owned property, but does the country-house hospitality meet our expectations at this price?
Cary Arms, Devon
In the sheltered haven of Babbacombe Bay, this inn and spa with rooms, suites and cottages has fabulous sea views and bags of nautical style. But did our inspectors think it was worth the high price?
Midland Hotel, Lancashire
The Midland is a modernist masterpiece, directly overlooking Morecambe Bay.
