Happy new hotels: January jaunts in Dorset, Manchester and Rome

Posted by Caroline on January 11th, 2010

One too many slips on icy pavements recently has made us all feel a little like hiding away until spring (though maybe not in the fridge, like Anthony’s tortoise). But despite the demise of the festive season, it’s not all gloom out there. Allow us to introduce a few new hotels to get you dreaming in 2010…

VelvetFirst up, may we suggest some hearty rural romps in the Dorset countryside, before resting your head at the Museum Inn – a romantic restaurant with rooms in Farnham village.

In search of a new party pad in Manchester, we’ve added Velvet to our UK collection – a deliciously camp boutique boudoir of a hotel that matches its flamboyant setting in the gay quarter.

marioOn the Continent, we’re proud to introduce two new Roman retreats, centred around the Piazza di Spagna. Margutta 54 and Mario de’ Fiori 37 each offer apartment-style suites with hotel frills such as breakfast and a super-efficient concierge.

By the time February comes, we’ll have been to Greece, Jamaica, Brazil and back all in the exotic name of spectacular stays. Check back next month…

  1. When I saw the first photo I thought “now that’s something new”. I’ve never slept in a hotel room with brick walls before. Looks cosy and blends perfectly with the wooden floors, the furniture and the dark curtains.

    I like the minimalist style in the second picture. If I could choose, I’d remove those two vases above the bed though. But not the photo. For some reason I have a weakness for carefully selected art/photographs right above beds.

  3. Hi Areyanna,

    You’ll find all the booking details you need by following the link to the relevant hotel. And when you book with Mr & Mrs Smith, you’ll get extra treats such as a free bottle of champagne, money back to spend on future stays, and peace of mind – we’ve road-tested these hotels ourselves, so we know they’re fantastic!
