Hotels for sharing?

As you can see from this blog and my Instagram account, I am partial to a odd spot of travel, all the better if its away from large hotels and resorts. I love the inspiration that sites such as Mr and Mrs Smith, Tablet and SLH provide – boutique, good geographical coverage, key info on rooms and locations…. But ultimately they do cater for couples. Which is absolutely perfect, if you’re travelling as a couple.

Other sites have family search options, or large group search options.

When I’m travelling with friends I spend considerable hours looking for a suitable hotel, similar to those found on the above sites, which understands that we don’t want to share a double bed, or pay for separate rooms. Not even the major travel sites consider options which are outside the single, double, family option. Which is a little frustrating. What about if you’re travelling with your best mate and as well as you might know him/her, you don’t really want to share a bed or have the expense of booking two rooms.

Here are some hotels that I can vouch for, which cater to travellers who are happy to share a room, but not a bed. This will be updated as I find more and details of most can be found in my blog. Do feel free to drop me a line with other suggestions:
