Hotel Review: United Places, Melbourne

United places is the quintessential boutique hotel.  It's small, high quality and personalized. There are only 12 rooms over 3 floors, and every room is a suite.  The slightly higher prices of the rooms are justified once you see the size of the suites, the qualities of the furnishings and the most perfect location ...

Review: The Mitchelton Hotel, Victoria

Victoria has a poor offering of nice regional hotels, and when I heard about the opening of the new Mitchelton Hotel in the small town of Nagambie, I was super excited to try it out. Nagambie is a lake side town about 1 hour north of Melbourne.  The town is pleasant and the lake is nice, there are a couple of old ...

Review: BA First, horror experience

BRITISH AIRWAYS FIRST CLASS B777 (LONDON TO TOKYO) I heard bad things about BA first class from some people, and I heard even worse things from some others.  How bad can it be?  It's still first class after all, right? The Concorde First class lounge in Heathrow was pretty disappointing but I was hoping things ...

Review: Il Palagio Restaurant, Florence

Fancy Italian simply doesn't work.  Simple Italian food with good ingredients and cooked with love is where its at. Someone should have told me that before we went to Il Palagio for dinner during our honeymoon a couple of years ago. The restaurant is one of the 'best' high end dining places in Florence.  It's ...

1 Review: The Chedi Club

Review: The Chedi Club

The hotel market of Ubud, Bali is so very crowded, but the Chedi Club makes you feel like you are the only person on the island. The Chedi club is not far from the the centre, only a short 5 to 10 minutes drive, and very close to the elephant cave. As with most hotels in ubud, it is surrounded by rice paddies, ...

The Intercontinental solves that problem by being right in the middle. It's not too far from parliament, Cuba street, Lambton Quay, Courtney place. It's only a ...
