Roch Castle, Roch
This impressive castle overlooking the St Brides Bay will transport guests to a mystical time. Dating back to the 12th century, Roch Castle is standing proudly on a rocky outcrop high above the Pembrokeshire landscape. Guests can enjoy a unique sense of history combined with a romantic getaway as each room is luxuriously decorated offering a modern feeling with beautiful views of the British coast and countryside.
Yellow Sub, Liverpool
Yellow Submarine is a classic song for a reason. Hark back to the 1960s with a stay in the Yellow Sub complete with Mod culture-themed décor. Singing optional, although we bet you’ll have the song stuck in your head now.

This property brings luxury to the boat life. Located less than a minute’s walk from ExCeL London, the Sunborn London is a floating super-yacht hotel boasting free WiFi access, a bar and a restaurant.
