Country Inns & Unique Small Hotels

Looking for something a little special and different? In addition to our existing range of hotel accommodation on our Self Drive Tours throughout North America, we are very excited to offer, a portfolio of unique and exceptional accommodation where available.

Select Registry Distinguished Inns

In the late 1960's, an inspired travel writer named Norman Simpson drove throughout North America in a panelled station wagon, identifying unique places to stay that offered what he called 'good honest lodging, good honest food and good honest feeling'. Hailed as 'the father of Country Inn Travel', Simpson - through his pioneering book, Country Inns and Back Roads - introduced an entirely new type of lodging experience to the travelling public. Today the Association of independent innkeepers started by Norman Simpson includes more than 400 of the finest country inns, luxury B&Bs and unique small hotels from California to Nova Scotia.

Perhaps the most important distinction that sets a SELECT REGISTRY member apart from other inns or B&Bs is their Quality Assurance Program. SELECT REGISTRY carries out a quality assurance inspection for each of its more than 400 properties. This process involves independent inspectors arriving unidentified, and having spent the night at the Inn evaluating it on a detailed point system resulting in a pass or fail. All aspects of SELECT REGISTRY properties are continually evaluated including standard of accommodation, cuisine and hospitality ensuring that only properties of the highest standard and in a class of their own pass the inspection process and become a SELECT REGISTRY member.

Other Unique Small Hotels & Country Inns

Along with our Select Registry properties, all other smaller hotels, Country Inns & Bed and Breakfasts used in our tours are hand picked, and chosen on the basis of their location, quality and the warm welcome you will experience. Some of these properties are independently owned, whilst others may be part of a small group of similar properties.

Many of the unique properties we feature offer a varying range of different style and sized rooms, depending on your personal preference and the season you travel in. Therefore, having established your individual requirements, and in order to offer you the best value for money we prefer to tailor your own personal quotation based upon what rooms are available at the time.
