Why Cool Places?

As the founders of Rough Guides, we think we know a thing or two what people are looking for when it comes to holidays. But now we are concentrating on the UK, seeking out its rich collection of great hotels, B&Bs, country cottages and more – not to mention lots of fabulous places to eat and drink. Cool Places now has around 10,000 pages of inspiration, making us No I in Google Search for places to stay in the UK.  That's above Visit England and Trip Advisor. Cool Places is all about collaboration – working together to promote Britain’s best accommodation businesses to the rest of the country. And it is fast becoming the benchmark for discerning holidaymakers all over the UK. If you do not appear on the Cool Places site but would like to just let us know – we’d love to hear from you so please suggest your place.
