Hotel beds and wine o’clock: two of the loves of Piers Morgan
It was as we were perusing the website of Hotel du Vin, the posh, claw-bathtub-and-rubber-ducky-included-as-standard boutique British chain, the other week, that we noticed a familiar face: Piers Morgan.
Yes! Ebullient Piers riffing on the joys of a hotel brand that’s based around its dedication to all kinds of wine. According to his blurb on the website:
I think I travel far, far too much. I need somewhere I can truly unwind. A place that offers me what I need, when I need it. Be it with friends or for business I look forward to stunning food and a thankfully peaceful nights sleep to recharge the batteries. Did I mention they do a great glass of wine too?
(Nice work crowbarring the word “glass” in there, Piers. We believe you.)
Nothing says "I heart you boo" more than a romantic getaway, but sexytime isn't just for Valentine's Day. So if you don't have time to catch one of the V-Day packages we're profiling this week, we're also presenting you with some year-round sexy options. Whether you're into raunch, roses, or Rosé, every day this week, we’ll pick a different property that we think will knock your socks—and who knows what else—off.
When it comes to Scotland, Edinburgh usually tops the go-see list. Still, we’re partial to Glasgow, and its louche, devil-may-care atmosphere. The city once had a rough rep, but today there are plenty of pretty spots. Plus, some once-gritty hoods are cleaning up their act, while retaining a bit of flavor.
One such area is the now-trendy West End, which is home to the Hotel du Vin Glasgow. A row of Victorian townhouses were connected to make the place—which has an air of an old gentleman’s club what with the welcome whisky, oak wood panels and a bistro that Gordon Ramsay once owned. In other words, testosterone's in the air.
Visitors to the (not-always-so-sunny) south coast of England will know the town of Poole, a hub for summer resort visits and beach swims--and even home to Lord of the Rings author Tolkien for a few years. The Hotel du Vin chain just opened the Hotel du Vin Poole a couple of weeks ago and although they can't claim a "Tolkien slept here" room, there still might be a few reasons to stop by.
