No cash for compliments.
Our website is based on a series of long-established printed guides, where no one pays for an entry.
Our series editor, Fiona Duncan, writes for the Sunday Telegraph and is the UK's most respected hotel reviewer.
No cliches, no flattery, no gushing - just objective, honest, expert reviews.
Our selection of places to stay in Scotland – The South are all south of an imaginary line drawn between Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Scottish hotels are generally more expensive than their English counterparts – overheads such as rates are higher north of the border.
As elsewhere, our interesting and exceptional selection in Scotland – The South offers a range of guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
