Read our Hotel Reviews

This web site does not specialize in hotels - our area of concentration is vacation rentals, houses or apartments that you rent by the week. But, even slow travelers end up in a hotel or two. Read our Hotel Reviews for UK & Ireland and get advice from other Slow Travelers.

How to Book a Hotel

If you are booking your hotel yourself, you can phone or fax to make your reservation. The country code for England is "44".

From the US: 011 for international calling, 44 for the United Kingdom, then dial the area code and phone number. Leave off the leading zero for the area code.
