Umbria hotel, 15th century country hotel, Italy
This is a very special place. The staff are friendly and helpful in a quiet manner, respecting privacy whilst giving excellent service. Rates are reasonable. The hotel is an authentically and tastefully decorated and furnished renovation of an old country manor house (more)Paul Bish
The most memorable parts were the beautiful suite at the top of the fascinating building and the delicious food. The food and service was sooo lovely we ate there every night. (more)Sue Prince

Transylvania bed and breakfast accommodation
I would love to go back and do a horse-riding trip with the countess as the best way to see Transylvania close up!...It was absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to go back! (more)Jan Barden
We loved it. Romania was something of a revelation, so many people thought we were a bit crazy to go to a country that tends to have a bad press, but we came across no problems whatsoever, it was one of the smoothest holidays in terms of organisation we have had. We hope to return and maybe stay in one of the Saxon villages next time. (more)Liz Pritchard
Fabulous. It was very interesting, we met some wonderful people and I came home feeling the most relaxed I had ever felt after a holiday. There is a small part of my heart left in Miklosvar and I will certainly return again one day. (more)Heidi Fuller
From €36 per person per night
Siolim hotel in Goa, India
This accommodation is a visually beautiful Portuguese villa, traditionally furnished in Portuguese style with enormous, high-ceilinged rooms in lush, well-kept gardens. It is perfect for anybody who is happy to make their own enjoyment. (more)Tony Lee
All employed staff come from the village and demonstrate competence, attention and kindness. The cuisine is particularly excellent and served in generous portions, fresh from the market or their garden. (more)Fabienne Beloeil-Smith
Lovely hotel, beautifully restored, friendly staff, quiet location away from the tourist hotspots. Perfect place to lay about and do nothing...We enjoyed our week and were glad to relax after our tour. (more)Kathleen Cannings
From Rupee2500 - Rupee14000 per room per night
Como B&B accommodation, Italy
Memorable parts? The hikes around Lake Como and Cascina Rodiana itself. The house is amazing and the owners have put a lot of effort and energy in renovating it, thinking about environmental aspects and interesting little details (check out the window shutters) in doing that. I stayed in the old part of the house with a lovely spot of a big fireplace and a small window which was a perfect place to read. During nighttime, the high windows closed so that the room became completely dark and... (more)Kristina Mδnd

Eco Resort in Karnataka, India
Memorable parts? We (self and my friend Mr. V.N. Rajanna) definitely enjoyed our stay at the resort. The location and the ambience is fine but the approach and route is very difficult to follow and reach. Especially during the rainy season. I know you cannot do much about the road, but at least the sign boards should be more traveller friendly. Nrythyagam has very good directions boards from the moment we turn to the Hessarghatta road. Otherwise happy with the overall the room, service... (more)Vijay Kumar Bhakta
