WHERE OUR HOTELS ARE

WHAT OUR HOTELS WERE

SOMEWHERE SPECIAL, SOMEWHERE DIFFERENT

Looking for boutique hotels, luxury hotels, hotels with spas? You'll find them all on this unique website - and all are hotels that stand out from the crowd. What makes them special is what makes them different: each has a past that's unique, a present that's packed with character, and an appeal that's every bit as individual as you are. That's why it's our pleasure to present these distinctive hotels.

BROWSE... CHOOSE... BOOK... ENJOY...
AND THE PLEASURE'S ALL YOURS!

Welcome To Hotels That Were Not

Not what? It’s the first question people ask. And the answer is: not originally hotels.

Built as palaces, castles, convents, factories, farmhouses, fortresses, mansions, monasteries, schools and much else besides – one was an entire medieval village in Italy - they’ve all been restored, converted and reborn, tranformed into hotels which are distinctly and delightfully different. Welcome to this exceptional, hand-picked selection of places to stay - places whose presence owes much to their past; individual properties with unique histories and authentic character. Welcome to an inviting choice, worldwide, of Hotels That Were Not.
So here's a question for you. Wouldn’t you rather stay somewhere really special?
