It's one of those things that must’ve happened to everybody: you check yourself into a swanky hotel only to find out it’s a bit of a hole.

Five stars doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to get the best standards – hotels get stars for things like potted plants in reception, a kettle in your room and a Corby Trouser Press bolted to the wall. None of these is particularly useful for a romantic break. Unless you’re really kinky…

So, wouldn’t it be great if you could actually see what the hotel looked like before booking – a short independently filmed video review would be ideal.

The guys at have done just that.

The list of hotels and destination cities is far from huge, but it does cover most of the major holiday hotspots around the globe. Also, they’re slowly building up their database, and judging by what we’ve seen already, they’ve got pretty good taste.
