In our days these castle hotels are real gems of the traditional Hungarian hospitality.

Switzerland is full of historic hotels, guest houses and restaurants. Many of these valuable Swiss cultural and historical treasures have until recently lain hidden away. History meant dusty, old, out of fashion.
For a few years now, an increasing number of guests and hotel keepers have rediscovered the charisma, attraction and charm of these objects. Buildings and rooms have been dusted down and in keeping with the modern principles of friendly service and quality, these "guest houses" are irresistible.
Motto: Patina, not dust.
And so it was that at the beginning of 2004, authentic historic hotels and restaurants came together under the name «Swiss Historic Hotels». These «Landmarks» are the embodiment of each region's exciting history; revealing wonderful natural and cultural experiences; the cuisine and wine cellars offering mouthwatering delicacies. All five senses are catered for.
Within a few years it should be possible to enjoy unforgettable experiences in a dense network of these Swiss «watering holes».
My name is Emyr Griffith. Welsh Rarebits is no ordinary hotel collection. I make no apologies for the fact that the personal approach is the one that works for me. I am passionate about hotels which offer high standards, not just in food and surroundings, but in that all-important third dimension - that elusive quality variously defined as atmosphere, ambience or, best of all, Croeso, the Welsh word for welcome.
Welsh Rarebits is a collection of luxury hotels, boutique hotels and country house hotels in the stunning scenery of Wales. Whether you want a romantic short break, a golfing break or a walking holiday there is a unique and luxurious hotel for you here in Wales.
The 43 members of Welsh Rarebits are personally selected by me. There is a meeting of minds because they too specialise in the personal approach - the kind of personal service which the charm schools of the big corporate hotels find impossible to provide.
It's a rare quality, but if you look hard enough you can find it at many different types of accommodation - which explains why Welsh Rarebits members include historic inns as well as Wales's top country house hotels, restaurants with rooms together with stylish resort hotels. It's this variety that gives Welsh Rarebits its unique character - and presents you with an unrivalled choice. With the help of this website, you can pamper yourself for a few nights in luxurious surroundings, then choose a more modestly priced place safe in the knowledge that you can still look forward to that rare Rarebits welcome, not to mention a commitment to excellence.
