Popular hotels on GHG Instagram in 2018

As much as we are advocates of the written word when it comes to recommending hotels, we have to admit that sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand of them. Following on from our article last year, here are the most popular hotels to date in 2018 on GHG Instagram…

The most majestic place for cosy evenings in… @augillcastle

Find a spot for quiet contemplation in the expertly maintained gardens or graceful public rooms of @dounesidehouse on the edge of the Cairngorms national park…

‘A lovely old house’, @bodysgallenhallspa is a historic mansion on the slopes of Pydew mountain has glorious views of Snowdonia…

‘Nothing compares to this special place,’ says a Guide reader in 2017 after a return visit to the Cunliffe family’s glamorous country house hotel @gilpinhotel

@gliffaes_hotel ‘Timeless standards of comfort’ keep guests coming back to this Italianate mansion ‘in a wonderful position’ on the River Usk.

The @themethuenarms is a Georgian pub with rooms, and while not the site of filming in itself, it is a short hop from the picturesque village of Lacock…

The five star spa Cliveden House has had its own makeover this year including the addition of treatments that have their own story, named for prominent women of its history including Anna-Maria, for whom @clivedenhouse was originally built as well as perhaps the House’s most famous resident, Nancy Astor…

@thescarlethotel – a perennial favourite for the Guide and indeed all spa lovers, this eco-friendly, low-tech hotel and spa is famed for its style, its service and its spa. The location is spectacular, as is the nature of Cornwall and its rugged vistas overlooking Mawgan Porth Bay. The spa itself is the sort of place people travel miles to visit. With its luxury tented treatment rooms lit by lanterns, quiet contemplative silence, and holistic wellbeing combining the wisdom of Ayurveda with a distinct Cornish twist. Using the @paiskincare line, their treatments are unique and individual. Eco has never felt so good.

Nowhere could be more magical in the snow than @hever_castle
