Nice apartment, clean and tidy. Paid a deposit of 75 euros and paid rest when we got there no problems... good location near everything in Riga centre. Gloria is very helpful if you have any problems and gave us advice during our stay.
This place is just amazing. Went there recently and had a magical time. Food was outsanding but the scenery is out of this world. Highly recommend taking a boat trip. This is for the more extravagent traveller.

Contemporary boutique hotel in the heart of the best neighborhood in BA - it's surrounded by shops and outdoor restaurants. Only seven rooms, each decorated in a different style: I stayed in the "modernism" room, which included a beautiful balcony. The staff are extremely courteous and hospitable. The nightly rate was only $135. For a complete description, with pictures, go to www.travelmusings.net
Home Hotel is a contemporary boutique hotel located in Palermo - the best neighborhood in BA, in my opinion. It's very hip but not over-the-top. Lots of white, outdoor bar by the pool, designer furniture, design magazines scattered about, etc. The rates are reasonable as well: approximately $135-$150 per night. Lots of restaurants nearby.
This is the original of Holly Howe, the farm around which Swallows and Amazons was set. For some reason while your correspondents have acknowledged Beatrix Potter they have ignored the other great Lakes writer of children's books, Arthur Ransome. B&B accommodation is in the main house, and self-catering in the farm buildings - all to a high standard.
You can walk in the famous field down to the lake, where Roger (who grew up to be the asthma doctor who developed Intal) practiced his tacking.
At Windermere you can visit the Windermere Steamboats and Museum where the original Amazon, and Captain Flint's houseboat are preserved.
There are a number of pubs in Coniston village - a walk round the head of the lake - which do good evening bar meals.
This vacation rental perched on the edge of the wild Pacific states it is 'luxury at the edge of the earth' - and it is! We spent a week here in July 2006 and didn't want to leave. Our days were spent surfing, kayaking, and hiking and evenings spent relaxing our tired bodies in the hot tub watching the whales go by - it was truly an unbelievable once in a lifetime experience. The house is located on a private beach, so beachcombing with coffee became our morning ritual. The area is one of unspoiled rugged wilderness, and one of our best meals was the salmon we caught that morning, barbequed on the beachfront porch and served on the 12 foot handmade cedar dining table - we created some wonderful family memories here. This is the wild west coast of Canada at its very best!
I am just back from Barcelona. Wonderful city, even if I found a temperature that was much more similar to the winter rather than the beginning of spring. Anyway, I spent my stay at Hotel Lleo, a nice hotel, clean, with friendly staff, and located in a highly strategic location. I would recommend it to everybody, and, definitely, I will stay at it next time I'll be in Barcelona again.

Very acceptable 4-star hotel. Great for exploring Padova, but even better for visiting Venice by train (30-40 minutes) to avoid paying crazy prices to stay in that city.
Upmarket country house B & B a few miles east of Machynlleth in Dinas Mawddwy. Lovely well appointed rooms and very good hospitality from the husband and wife hosts Nick and Mair Godley. Decent and plentiful evening meals and good choice for breakfast too. Will be going again!
As a 'regular' at the much grander Hotel de la Opera, I was intrigued to stay several nights in this cheaper option in Candelaria historic district. The attempt to create a boutique hotel in a lovely old building has its quirks and is somewhat ramshackle, but it will suit anyone who does not expect 5-star comforts. Don't expect English to be spoken.

I booked for a few days and have since rebooked twice. It is ideally located for seeing the city, the nightlife which is student fantastic but it is also really comfortable and as you must have student/international i.d. the other guests are really cosmopolitan and interesting. Facilities are spot on and abundant. It is spotless and well run.

Fantastic place to eat, drink and recover from a hard day out on the hill. Also has accommodation if you're not a hard-up climber. Can get pretty lively on winter weekends. Great selection of real ales and even better selection of single malts.

This small B&B is great value and really welcoming. The rooms are large and decorated in a charming, quirky manner. The location is great - quiet, safe and close to loads of the best restaurants and bars in the Back Bay and South End areas. Also, for the environmentally conscious, the bathroom has a composting toilet!

A camp ground which is just a sand dune away from a fabulous deserted beach for surfing, swimming, fishing.
This is a 3-day sailing cruise around the Whitsunday Islands on a 135ft schooner. The rooms are all private, en-suite, A/C. Food is really high quality and there is plenty of it. The crew are fantastic. It includes snorkelling, diving (at an extra cost), glass bottom boat. An excellent trip.

There are several National Park camp grounds along the shores of the lake. It is really cheap to camp - about AUS$3.50. It is a fab location, right on the shores of the lake.

This is a newly built backpackers hostel, the first in the city to be purpose built but to come with lots of free off-street parking is a huge boon to the car hire afficionados who can whisk into the city and find plentiful free parking. Rooms are for groups of four and six and the facilities in ornate Italian marble are ultra modern and new.

1970s Belgian hotel architecture, with a nice garden and pool right in the centre of Kigalli, redolent with its recent history as a refuge in the genocide. The rooftop restaurant has fabulous views of the city, very good food and service and is reasonably priced
The Hotel System where I stayed when visiting Krakow is a modern and friendly place to accommodate! And cheap. No need to talk too much just see it on www.hotelsystem.pl I have really enjoyed this stay and I will be back :-)
