The Glasshouse, Edinburgh

When the 160-year-old Lady Glenorchy Church was converted into The Glasshouse Hotel in 2003, Scotland exchanged one iconic piece of history for another. This 77-bedroom luxury boutique hotel is now considered one of the best places to stay in Edinburgh, with cosy-contemporary interiors, warm Scottish service and consistently spectacular views of the city centre, Calton Hill or the hotel’s two-acre rooftop garden.

Llangoed Hall, Wye Valley

Llangoed Hall is a wonderfully elegant and historic country house hotel situated in the beautiful Wye Valley in the heart of the Welsh countryside. It offers the quintessential Edwardian country house experience, once belonging to Laura Ashley’s husband, Bernard, who bought it two years after the designer died and decorated it in her trademark style before it opened as a hotel in 1990. While very much a country-house hotel, Laura Ashley traces are still in evidence; pretty floral bedspreads in enormous, thick-carpeted bedrooms and sketches on the walls.
