Britain, and offer a good range of small independent hotels, including
many traditional inns. These regions have plenty of attractive
coastline, with popular seaside resorts, plus a very attractive rural
hinterland: the Westcountry is characterised by its old towns, small
villages and rolling hill country, Wales by its higher hills and
mountains, which are very popular with hikers.
For more information see
the purposes of this directory, the Westcountry includes the counties
of Avon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devonshire and Cornwall.

Reservations / booking.
is an information website, not a booking platform. To check
prices and make
bookings, you will be taken either to a hotel's own
independent website, or to one of our partners Hotels.com
where you can book
and pay in English or in your own language. iHi has no booking software
and takes no part in any booking process.
While Booking.com and hotels.com guarantee
unbeatable rates, many
smaller hotels have a fixed rate for their rooms, meaning that visitors
will get the best rate whatever way they choose to book.
In most cases the online booking sites with which iHi is partnered
allow free cancellation and do not require payment in advance. A credit
card is normally required to secure a booking as a guarantee for the
hotels in case visitors book a room but do not show up. Most
hotels will charge the customer on arrival or on departure,
according to their standard policy..
