You can pack a lot into two days. Perhaps you have a sightseeing list as long as your arm, or plans to spend the whole weekend with your feet up. For jam-packed city breaks right through to get-away-from-it-all escapes, our luxury hotels are sublime weekend bases.

At these exclusive retreats you’ll find in-the-know concierges and friendly staff who can guide you to must-visit restaurants and must-see sights. Some have indulgent spas. Others boast enviable wine cellars and spectacular settings. But they are all tailor-made for long weekends and short-notice getaways.

After a busy week, why not look forward to stepping inside one of these small, luxury hotels.
