Editor’s Choice Restaurants-with-Rooms

Leave room for dessert is probably the best advice when visiting these hotels. Ranging from a ringside seat with the chief to the most exquisite fine dining, Michelin starred chefs are never far away in the gourmet restaurants that are peppered around the country – as long as you know where to find them.  Set in charming inns and beautiful country house hotels, good food is always combined with excellent locations and atmospheres, not to mention wonderful customer service.  Here are the Good Hotel Guide’s Editor’s Choice Restaurants-with-Rooms.
