This new HotelClub Guidebook, 'Great Britain & Ireland's Best Hotels', will be published in January 2008, in conjunction with leading travel publisher Insight Guides. The Guide will be the third in the series following the highly successful Asian and Oceanic editions.

The best travel and accommodation decisions have been influenced by travel tales, word of mouth and online reviews," said Igor Jovicic, Country Manager UK & Ireland, HotelClub.
