Bali eco lodge bungalows in Indonesia
I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this holiday is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret! Situated on the southern slopes of Mt Batakaru in remotest Bali, this place is a pocket of paradise, far removed from the ravages of the 21st century. Having spent a week there I did not want to leave. (more)Daphne Donkin

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
Auvergne holiday accommodation, France
We really enjoyed the week in the Auvergne it is very unspoilt and it is an area you can "get away from it all"....The area is ideal for walkers or most kinds of outdoor activities. There are lots of waymarked and signposted trails, that range from gentle woodland strolls to full mountain hikes. (more)Phil Smith
The quietness and natural beauty of Mont Dore in November was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Mary Cherian
Our three teenage children claimed it was the best holiday we've had in years...that's high praise indeed! Relaxed, easy to find something to enjoy in stunning surroundings, with a friendly, quality service offered by attentive hosts. (more)Sarah Brennan

Vegetarian bed & breakfast in West Wales
A memorable vacation to a unique land. Our host was outstanding. He will cater to all flavors of veg, but we had no trouble getting him to feed us vegan or nearly-vegan cuisine. All delicious and filling. (more)Richard Stone
I would highly recommend that bed and breakfast to anyone who needs some time away from the crouds and from their lives. I felt like staying even longer as Phil (the host) made my stay a very pleasant one and kept giving me insider-tips where to hike out to or what to do. He was very helpful. (more)Hanna Leipold
From 28 - 60 per person per night
Walkers accommodation in the Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Memorable parts? The hospitality shown by the hosts Rebecca and Andy, who welcome you warmly into their home. The meals were fabulous and the packed lunches the best yet. Tips? Stay longer than we did, do more walking than we did, it will be worth it. Local benefits? Yes - we walked into Aviemore, and took the local steam train back, had a drink in the local pub, bought goodies from the local store and visited a nearby village tearoom. Overall rating? Excellent,... (more)Stephen Brown
From 21 - 40 per person per night
Farnese bed and breakfast in Viterbo, Italy
Memorable parts? Our accommodation Residenz Farnese; the Bed and Breakfast is delightful and sits in a rural village. This part of Italy is very pretty and quite historical. There are a number of pcturesque hilltop villages, a Natural Thermal Spring, the coast is twenty five minutes away and Rome is two hours by train or one and a half hours by car. Tips? A car is imperative. It is not possible to park close to Resindeza Farnese (the street is too narrow for car access). Maybe it... (more)christine walters
From 70 - 120 per accommodation per night
Naxos holiday accommodation, villa and B&B, Greece
We stayed with Gilly as bed and breakfast guests for a week in early May this year and I thought I must write to say how friendly and welcoming Gilly and Robin were. They gave us a delicious breakfast each morning and made our stay very special by giving us lots of excellent information on exploring Naxos and tips on tavernas to eat at. Our apartment was very thoughtfully decorated and equipped, the rooms light, pretty and tasteful, in a simple Greek style but with personal touches and everything... (more)Kate Hay

Isan accommodation, North East Thailand
Just what we had been hoping for - a place to experience 'the real Thailand' and plenty of opportunity to learn about the place and its people, off the beaten track but still with enough home comforts to make it relaxing for us and our children. (more)Rachel Holland
We had a wonderful time at this village. It was a good blend of relaxation and excursion. The host couple, Noi and David are very warm people and made efforts to make this trip a memorable one for us. Our 19 month old had great company with the village kids. (more)Anshuman Asthana
