The Good Hotel Guide, first published 32 years ago, is totally independent. It receives no payments, hospitality or advertising from hotels selected for an entry in the printed Guide. Hotels pay to be on the Guide’s website but only those hotels who have an entry in the printed Guide are invited to appear. Some of our selected hotels also buy copies of the printed Guide from us. Hotels are recommended by readers, backed up where necessary by an anonymous professional inspection.
The British edition of the Guide is published each autumn. Adam & Caroline Raphael, who edit the Guide, are award-winning journalists. Caroline, a former BBC researcher and a travel writer, is editor-in-chief. She has worked on the Guide for more than 30 years. Adam, who has worked for The Guardian, The Observer, the BBC and the Economist, is the Guide’s marketing director. Desmond Balmer, formerly travel editor of The Observer, is editor of the British guide. The Guide specialises in small owner-managed hotels and B&Bs in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Channel Islands. It includes budget B&Bs, good-value hotels as well as luxurious country houses
