Kincraig Castle Hotel

Chosen by: Andrew and Emily from Along Dusty Roads

“This delightful castle, a former seat of the MacKenzie clan, is the epitome of the Scottish castle experience. Expect large, regal rooms with traditional finishes, a huge four-poster bed and breath-taking views over the Highlands. Kincraig Castle is a fitting stay whether you’re beginning or ending your epic road trip around the North Coast 500.”

Hotel Marosheni, Georgia

Chosen by: Alex from Lost with Purpose

“How does road tripping through golden vineyards in one of the world’s oldest winemaking countries sound? If driving through offbeat Georgia (the country, not the state!) sounds like your glass of wine, you could try a rest stop at the charming Hotel Marosheni, deep in rural wine country. It has its own vineyard!”

ABode Canterbury, Kent, England

Chosen by: Sven and Anja from Never Seen Before

“The South of England is a great place for road tripping. While stopping in Canterbury we chose ABode Canterbury, a beautiful four-star boutique hotel centrally located in the pedestrian zone of the medieval city. ABode is housed in an old half-timbered house, which has been preserved beautifully, with modern facilities integrated. A great mix.”

Whitney Peak Hotel, Reno, USA

Chosen by: Megan and Michael from Fresh Off the Grid

“Aside from the hip décor and spacious rooms, the real draw to the Whitney Peak Hotel is its amazing rock climbing gym! In Reno, ideally located for road trips around Nevada and Northern California, the hotel is home to the world’s tallest artificial climbing wall (164ft), which scales the exterior of the building. It also has an expansive indoor climbing and bouldering facility that can’t be missed.”

Historic Plaza Hotel, Las Vegas, New Mexico, USA

Chosen by: Ryan and Rebecca from Our Streamlined Life

“No road trip of the USA’s Southwest is complete without stopping in the other Las Vegas, and the Historic Plaza Hotel is a classic. It’s affordably priced with spacious rooms, and you’ll love unwinding at the glittering onsite bar after a day on the road. And if you’re still up for exploring, the Plaza is conveniently located on a charming town square.”
