Great places to stay

After a day of gentle cycling adventures, we think you’ll appreciate a place where you can feel at home and put your feet up. That’s why, whether you choose cycling holidays in the UK or Europe,  we personally select and visit all the accommodation featured in our cycle breaks. We choose our accommodation partners carefully and to clear standards.

At our base under huge Suffolk skies, we’ve been listening and learning from our walking and cycling break customers since 1991 too. Our customers share their experiences with us and many come back to book with us again – proof that our high level of service, valuable knowledge and attention to detail is very much appreciated and considered good value for money.

The facilities you need

All accommodation is well-located and comfortable and includes en-suite facilities – and although evening meals are available at most of our properties – our detailed documentation provides further top tips on local places to eat.

Our accommodation is generally offered on a bed and breakfast basis, but tours in some parts of France do include dinner as well and a small selection of our tours in England include some evening meals (see individual tour descriptions for details).

The quality you’d expect

All our accommodation is personally chosen and visited by us. It is selected to clear standards and ranges from 2 to 4 star properties according to local classifications in the different countries. In England we also feature a couple of 5 star B&Bs which have won the much-coveted Gold Award for quality.

And plenty of local character too

Half-timbered, historic coaching inns; Italian neo-classical treats with elegant terraces; family-run ‘auberges’; creeper clad ‘Gasthöfe’ with balconies dripping Geraniums; relaxing country hotels; well-positioned seafront or lakeside hideaways; converted flint-faced barns; modern city centre rooms with culture on the doorstep – you’ll find a great collection of hotels with local flavour in our portfolio.

Go on, spoil yourself

Fancy a four-poster for the night in your half-timbered East Anglian inn, a little additional luxury or waking up to wonderful view across the Suffolk beach to the crashing waves? Upgrades are available at a number of our hotels in England , and at some destinations we can arrange for you to stay, if you prefer, in especially sought-after establishments.

Or why not stay a little longer?

For all our cycling tours, short breaks and holidays in England and Europe, we are also pleased to book additional nights at either at end of your tour, or sometimes along the way too, if available.

 


About our accommodation in England

Characterful, comfortable and well chosen

hot_ni_sculthorpe_mill

Converted flint-faced barns or an old inn on a leafy Georgian square, a hidden stately manor, a pantiled pub gone warmly provençal, half-timbered coaching inn confections and the smartest seaside hotels.

Our accommodation in East Anglia is not just comfortable, but brimful of character. In Suffolk, our special single centre breaks feature a Tudor mansion and more modern club hotel. These, like all our establishments, are well-located for your gentle adventures, but also offer great leisure facilities so you can really relax into your time away.

All our accommodation is of a very high standard, with many hotels and B&Bs awarded three or more stars according to national classifications. We also feature a couple of 5 star B&Bs which have won the much-coveted Gold Award for quality.

Making sure you get a taste of the place

Our hotel stays in Suffolk and Norfolk are arranged on a bed and breakfast basis but in our route notes, we point out great places to stop for lunch, tea, a picnic or refreshing pint. We also give tips for evening meals, either at the hotel or nearby restaurants.

Many of our standard itineraries in this region blend 2 and 3 star accommodation to create what we believe to be a great balance between comfort, location, character, quality and value for money.

On many of our standard itineraries in the Loire region, we now also offer an upgrade to 3 star accommodation throughout, just to allow that extra little indulgence.

To help you make the most of the delicious regional cuisine, our hotel stays in the Loire are arranged on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis, including a three or four course supper at the hotel or nearby restaurant in the tour price.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Local Hotel Taxes
From late 2011, some municipalities in Italy have started to introduce an additional tax at some locations.

These taxes are not included in the price of our holidays.

Our local partners in Italy have advised us that they cannot pay these taxes in advance, the tax is payable either at check in or check out at each hotel. In most cases the cost approximates to the star rating of the hotel priced in euros per person per night (eg a 4 star hotel is 4 euros per person, per night).
