Why you shouldn’t always trust luxury hotel reviews

luxury hotel guide and hotel reviews

The Critics Guide is one of the few remaining luxury travel guides that produces truly independent luxury hotel reviews on a global level. Unlike luxury travel bloggers, the Critics Guide are a team of real experts who travel the world to bring you a luxury travel guide like no other. When it comes to knowing who to trust in a world of Instagram ads and sponsored content, it can be difficult to decipher the disingenuous from the genuine.

The main difference between the likes of luxury travel bloggers and independent travel guides such as the Critics Guide, is that we hand pick the luxury hotel and restaurant reviews that we curate, to ensure we’re only bringing true luxury experiences to our readers. That, as well as the fact that the team have years of experience of preparing the luxury travel guide, really sets us apart from newer luxury travel blogs.

Our luxury hotel reviews, as well as our restaurant reviews, truly showcase what the world currently has to offer in terms of truly luxurious and exclusive experiences. We’re proud to have visited some of the top hotels and restaurants in the world, and are committed to informing our readers of our experiences so they too may make an educated choice on where and how they decide to travel. Luxury hotels are springing up everywhere and it’s difficult to know where best to go or who to trust; so as our reader, you can rest soundly in the knowledge that we’ll deliver a factual and honest account as an independent luxury travel guide. This is why we’re trusted by so many of our readers to help them plan their travels.


"When it comes to knowing who to trust in a world of Instagram ads and sponsored content, it can be difficult to decipher the disingenuous from the genuine.”


Our experience has enabled us to really delve into what luxury means as a concept. It has allowed us to truly identify and really define what the word luxury stands for, so when we positively review a luxury hotel or restaurant, you can be assured that we know what we’re talking about.

At the Critics Guide, we’re fortunate in being independent in our approach to creating our luxury travel guide. Unlike luxury travel bloggers who would need to comply with a brand’s marketing strategy; the Critics Guide hand-pick luxury hotels, restaurants and experiences to review. This allows us to be honest and up-front throughout our catalogue of luxury hotel reviews, which is something we take great pride in.

Our research is thorough. We’re usually some of the first to hear about new luxury hotels through our well-connected grapevine of connections, and with our global network we’re in a fantastic position to experience some of the newest names in the luxury travel scene. It is true that the timeless players in the game are often some of the best, but we’re committed to giving each and every luxury hotel, restaurant and experience a try, and we feel exceptionally fortunate to be able to do so. This is why we’re so dedicated to our readers and work hard to present factual, detailed and honest reviews in our luxury travel guide.

When reading luxury hotel reviews in the future be sure to ask yourself the following before trusting the content:

  • Is this content from a true expert in their field?
  • Is this content encouraging me to take an educated approach in booking a luxury travel experience?
  • After reading, do I feel more informed as to what I can expect from this experience as a whole?

If the answer to the above questions is a resounding ‘yes’, then you can be safe in the knowledge that you can trust the information provided.
