Never heard of Gallivanter’s Guide?

Today, The Gallivanter’s Guide is a glossy, privately published travel advisory; consisting of 8-16 pages, according to the number of hotels reviewed.

It takes no advertising and employs no journalists. Guide creators Lun Middlehurst and David Maslin personally review only the best hotels and resorts in the world. The only criteria is quality in all its guises, which means that sometimes, the sacred cows of the hotel world come in for quite a bit of criticism.

Only those hotels that the couple have personally assessed ‘from the guest’s point of view’ are included in The Gallivanter’s Guide.
