New site offers Wales in style is a new travel website and itinerary planner for visitors to Wales who are looking for top quality accommodation, attractions and activities.Members are handpicked and each property is independently reviewed to ensure that it meets rigorous quality standards. The site specialises in the kind of individual, quirky and noteworthy properties that are often hard to find in guide books - hotels, guest accommodation, self-catering cottages, pubs, restaurants, shops, all kinds of visitor attractions and outdoor activities are all represented.

Wales in Style is a not for profit organisation with the backing of VisitWales (formerly Wales Tourist Board). The site is easy to navigate and visitors can search by region or category. Every selection shown carries a comprehensive review and is displayed alongside a “top three” nearby properties to help with itinerary planning. In the next phase of development, it will be possible to download a tailor-made brochure of choices for personal use or to email to friends. The site will also linked to Street Map to help locate the properties.

Simon Wright, owner of Y Polyn Restaurant and quality advisor to Wales in Style explains: “Wales has, for some time, had the type of contemporary hotels and restaurants that many consumers are seeking, but our research found that they were having trouble locating them. Inclusion in Wales in Style is by invitation only, guaranteeing that only the very best will make the grade. Selections are made by a panel comprising tourism professionals and leading figures from Welsh hospitality.”
