There are some truly exceptional places to stay out there – but first, you have to know where to find them. Our site takes you on a tour of the world's most stylish and unique hotels, from New York to New Zealand, London to Los Angeles and everywhere in between. We tell you the best room or suite to ask for, where to head for the tastiest lunch, and we point you toward the best beaches and picnic spots – in other words, we put you on the inside track.
Every boutique hotel in our collection has been visited by the Smith team before being reviewed anonymously (and thoroughly) by a stylish couple, and each reviewer tells their own evocative first-person tale. So you can rest assured that we've personally tested the beds, surveyed the views and sampled the cuisine at each of our hotels and made sure that they really are the best in class.
Why book with us? Thanks to exhaustive research, anonymous hotel reviews, and our dedicated 24-hour Travel Team just a phone call away, your special stay – whether romantic, family or anything else – is in safe hands. We guarantee the best room rates available (you'll never pay more by booking with us), and, because we give you a free BlackSmith membership when you first book with us, you’ll get money back and added extras, too.
Whether you're looking for a quirky city boutique hotel, a stylish country guesthouse or a luxury spa hotel, we have selections to suit all budgets and moods. (And if you want to surprise someone with a hotel but want them to choose, our Get a Room! gift vouchers make perfect presents.)
People wonder why we're called Mr & Mrs Smith... Well, we’ve been around a lot longer than Brad and Angelina, though we have to admit we like their style. Really, it's because we're all about romantic escapes with your other half; a wink to couples everywhere, who might fancy checking into a fabulous hotel under this classic pseudonym used by everyone from spies to celebrities.
Best wishes and bon voyage,
Mr & Mrs Smith
