We go to a lot of trouble to choose our hotels. We stay in mostly 3*** hotels, and occasionally (in France) in 2** hotels if I particularly like the hotel or the owners. Stars work differently in France; if a family-owned hotel won't have 24-hour staff, they stay at 2**.

I have personally chosen every hotel we stay in, and a Chain Gang guide accompanies every group, so we really can't afford to arrive at hotels and have our customers dissatisfied.

In every case, these are hotels that we've worked with for years, and that makes a huge difference. We're staying with old friends, so we're always assured a warm welcome, but just as important, if any Chain Gangers need anything, our hotel owners will bend over backwards to help.
