The Montague on the Gardens, London?

MT_Exterior_013

This is a genteel, Georgian haven in swanky Bloomsbury, with dimmed lighting, a bountiful breakfast and impeccable service. Rooms evoke a time gone by, with repose and privacy guaranteed. And it’s just a short stroll from the British Museum, making it an ideal, high-end bolthole for culture vultures. B&B from €215. montaguehotel.com

The Cliff Townhouse, Dublin

Parkview - 209(1)

A cosy place where you can experience Georgian Dublin and St Stephen’s Green in one of nine grand-but-homely rooms. Expect Donegal tweed blankets, Bose stereos, sash windows and writing desks – a nod to Samuel Beckett who found inspiration during his stay in this house in the 20th-century. Dine in its modern, fine dining restaurant or settle into the Oyster and Champagne Bar for an indulging soir?e. B&B from €190. theclifftownhouse.com

The William, New York

The-William-Hotel-New-York-NYC-Travel-2

You can easily pretend you’re living not staying in Midtown at this reconverted brownstone property, whose 33 big and bright guest suites boast a Nespresso-machine-kitted kitchenette, Apple TV and L?Occitane toiletries. Terrace suites are just marvellous, and there’s Raines Law Room, a renowned speakeasy bar, and Shakespeare pub, downstairs. Rooms from $315. thewilliamnyc.com?

Eyre Square Townhouse, Galway

Townhouse 14

Looking for a proper c?ad m?le f?ilte? The central location is perfectly placed to absorb the city’s famous craic. Large and impersonal this is not, with only ten ensuite bedrooms over two floors, custom-made furniture, free Wi-Fi, sumptuous bedding and LCD TVs all adding to a comfortable stay. Double rooms from €80. eyresquaretownhouse.com

The Pulitzer, Amsterdam

Final bedroom view book collector

The mighty fine sleeping quarters of this restored former 17th- and 18th-century canal house come with a canal or garden view. The property may be old but its decor is bang on trend and its concierge excellent. Break a sweat in the fitness suite or take a tour on The Tourist – a 1920s-style, saloon boat exclusively for guests. Double rooms from €299. pulitzeramsterdam.com
