Welcoming hotels

Luxury activity holidays featuring hotels of character and good food

Stay in the most welcoming hotels and savour the tastiest local cuisine


We are renowned for our family-run hotels of character and we hand-pick those places where the owners extend a genuine welcome and take time to engage with you to help you get the most out of your holiday. As we specialise in holidays for individuals rather than groups, we can offer quite small hotels, and those in our selection range from intimate guesthouses where you dine round a large table with your hosts and other guests, to elegant 4-star hotels with swimming pools and saunas.

Many hotels have featured in our programmes for years, and over this time we have built strong relationships with the hoteliers, meaning that as an Inntravel guest you enjoy particularly attentive service. Your hosts will be happy to offer advice on the local area, and can be relied on to help if you encounter any difficulties while on holiday. (We also operate a 24-hour helpline for emergencies.)

As we tend to include dinner in our arrangements unless there is a good choice of restaurants locally, another consideration for us when choosing a hotel is the standard of its cuisine. Naturally, the style of the cooking will reflect the style and location of the accommodation – perhaps a hearty game stew in a mountain inn or a delicately flavoured seafood dish in an acclaimed restaurant on the coast – but wherever you stay, you’ll be treated to flavoursome regional cuisine incorporating the best local produce. Our detailed documentation usually includes information on traditional local dishes (and the best local wines) so that you can be sure to sample them over the course of your holiday.
