    We are delighted to announce that we have started recommending hotels in France once again. Official French tourism figures for 2014 revealed it was the most visited country in the world, and over 80% of visitors were from Europe, especially the UK.

    The scope of our recommendations reflects this; we’ve already put up a hand-picked list of what we consider to be some of the best hotels in Paris, and similar recommendations in Provence and Brittany, and more, will follow shortly.

    We hope readers will nominate their favourite hotels in France so that we can gradually build up the numbers again. That is the way the Good Hotel Guide began 33 years ago when Hilary Rubinstein, a literary agent, asked all his friends to nominate their favourite hotel.

    GUIDE BOOK VOUCHERS

    Selected hotel accepts discount vouchers which entitle readers to a 25% discount off their normal B&B rate for a single night’s stay. Each printed copy of the Guide contains six vouchers worth in total about £150.
