  1. some of the hotels on the website look pretty special to me – the directory would enable me to pore over them in more details – fabulous!

  2. I went to have a look at this site to see if I’d stayed at any of their ‘special’ hotels. While I was there I discovered that they’re running a prize draw of a four night luxury stay in Madeira, Portugal (flights and transfers excluded). All you have to do to enter is to fill in your details on their online form.

    I couldn’t find any closing date for the competition but the winner will be announced by 15th June, so you better get your skates on if you want to enter. Good luck!
