Wherever it was, what's the most posh, luxurious, ostentatious, etc hotel you have ever stayed in? Was it worth the cost?

Macdonald in Bath - they offered us a butler. I don’t know what it cost, but only the indoor/outdoor heated pool was memorable.

The W in Singapore. I wasn't paying (work trip) but it was amazing.

The poshest hotel I've ever paid for was the TRS Yucatan in Mexico. Worth every penny.

Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong in 2002. I wasn't paying, the client was. My benchmark for posh hotels ever since, it was utterly lovely.

The Royal Livingstone in Zambia. We had a butler!

Not sure what it cost - it was part of a tour around Southern Africa. Not expensive by British 5 star standards though.

Wolgan valley resort, Blue Mountains, Australia, Cost equivalent of £1000 per night but we didn't pay - it was a competition prize! Utterly beautiful - private plunge pool, one bedroomed lodge with an amazing bathroom, dressing room, verandah.

We usually spend way less than £100 per night on accommodation so this was such an amazing treat.

A few. Stayed in a gorgeous Manor House type hotel in Hertfordshire years ago, that was my first time in a 5 star. An amazing spa resort in Washington state, few 5 stars in London which aren't as luxurious due to space but are opulent. Probably the most though was In Colombo Sri Lanka, a French patisserie in the lobby and hand made chocolates on the pillow! The staff were too attentive though, kept wanting to help me, get me a driver etc when I said I was going out alone - actually they have UBERTut was brilliant

The Shangri-La in Singapore on a two-day layover. They gave me only the second room upgrade I’ve ever had in my life - I nearly wept when I opened the door. Living room, bedroom, beautiful balcony, and just gorgeous linens, decor, chocolates, fruit every day - it was bliss.

The local Premier Inn. It was fab.

Just kidding. My favorite would be Hotel Ernst in Cologne, Germany. Great location and very chic.

The Ritz-Carlton in Osaka. Not paid by me Grin

I was given a ‘basic’ room and it had 3 double beds Shock More senior colleagues had deluxe suites and it was just another world. Amazing facilities and the most delightful staff.
