Conservatorium Hotel, Amsterdam, Netherlands
This hotel, located where Amsterdam's cultural quarter meets its shopping mecca, is essentially a melding of old and new. An imposing 19th-century building that has been given a stunning 21st-century contemporary makeover, it feels spacious and sleek. Its centrepiece, a vast glass-covered atrium, cannot fail to impress, and this houses a fabulous meeting place in the form of a large and welcoming lounge area and brasserie. These spaces are separated by glass display cabinets of beautiful contemporary craftware, and modern fixtures and fittings and furniture sit amongst more traditional items. Supremely comfortable rooms, a sophisticated restaurant and bar and top-tier spa complete the very pretty picture.
The hotel is brilliantly located for everyone, whether a culture vulture, shopaholic or young child wanting to let off steam on nearby Museumplein.
A prime location means you're close to the city's sights including Vondelpark, the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and the Heineken Experience.
By plane: direct flights from London and Manchester take around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from Schiphol airport and central station. Parking costs €95 per day. skyscanner.net

Food & Drink
We loved the little touches, like at breakfast: good quality strong coffee, juices that are super-fresh and expertly-cooked eggs Benedict, Royal, Florentine and any other way. The grilled butterflied seabass with salsa verde, salad and grilled lemon was scrumptious.
