This week, we’ve checked in and ordered (via room service) three copies of Rooms with a View – a fascinating book written by distinguished hotel historian and travel journalist Adrian Mourby.
Adrian is a lover of grand hotels – and the world’s grandest hotels have provided glamorous backgrounds for some of the most momentous (and most bizarre) events in history. Want examples? Sure. Salvador Dali once asked room service at Hotel Le Meurice in Paris to send him up a flock of sheep. When they were duly brought to his room he got out a gun and fired blanks at them. George Bernard Shaw tried to learn the tango at Reid’s Palace in Madeira, and the details of India’s independence were worked out in the ballroom of the Imperial Hotel, Delhi.
This book collects these incredible, startling and often hilarious tales from the world’s best hotels – for you to enjoy. And we have three copies to give away!
This week’s question – what was the most MEMORABLE hotel you ever stayed in… and why? (Keep your answers to under 50 words please!) Our three favourite responses will each win a copy of this book.
THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES! WINNERS WILL BE EMAILED AND ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
