Authentic Accommodation

Wake up somewhere unique

Some of the hotels we’ve found capture local culture in a way that’s entirely unique; hence the name ‘Authentic Accommodation'.

Join us for a night’s stay at the hotel where JFK proposed to Jackie Onassis. Or get a feel for what it was like to be an old-time Italian king while staying at the Albergo Dell’Agenzia – the former country estate of King Carlo Alberto of Savoy.

After all, there’s nothing like waking up in a place that has a history.

"Our accommodation was perfect"

See where you could wake up

    The Strater Hotel is a local landmark in Durango. Built in 1887 by a pharmacist, who was sure the mining town would prosper, his dreams never quite came to pass and it became a refuge for locals in winter. You’ll be delighted to see it now houses the world’s largest collection of American Victorian antiques.

  • Vietnam HalongBay 2016 L 618721304

    Wake up aboard a traditional junk boat surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Halong Bay. As you sail among dramatic limestone islets, you'll dine on freshly-caught seafood and get to know your fellow travellers in a unique setting.

    Join the Yigitoglu family at their grandly restored Turkish cave hotel, Dilek Kaya, which sits proudly beside the Ortahisar rock castle. You’ll spend a night in its unique rock-carved bedrooms, and the hotel’s position means you’ll enjoy beautiful elevated views of Cappadocia’s honeycombed hills.

    In Ireland, Captain Patrick will share his local knowledge of Ashford Castle as you cruise towards its drawbridge. As you come ashore, a lone piper will be waiting to escort you to your home for the night: a 13th century fortress turned luxury retreat.
