Pop quiz – what’s the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the word holiday?

Chances are it's a picture perfect palm fringed beach, or vibrant city nightlife, but we bet for a significant number of you it's an image of the dream hotel that you conjure up. Breakfast in (vast, four-poster) bed in a beautiful and luxurious bedroom, or lying under a parasol by an immaculate infinity pool, cocktail in hand.

The thing is, whether you're a Big Short Breaker or a Spa Bunny (check out our Travel Tribes), the place you lay your head at night is a hugely significant part (and cost) of your holiday, so it had better be good. Of course the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a destination are the stuff that treasured holiday memories are made of, but the hotel (or lodge, or tented camp, or treehouse, or houseboat, or ... etc) can, and should, make the trip even more memorable.

With that in mind, we've started this new Collection to show you our favourite hotels for every eventuality…
