There's a renaissance afoot - which is splendid news for men on the move who appreciate history with a touch of glamour (not to mention a luxurious night in bed). Great hotels of the past are being lovingly restored and brought back to life - capacious bedrooms, high ceilings, natural light, fireplaces, wide sitting rooms and all (features most cookie-cutter modern hotels sorely lack). Not to mention essential amenities such as lengthy bathtubs or invisible televisions located within bathroom mirrors which light up with the touch of a button (shaving will never be boring again). Here we present six exquisite properties with a rich heritage - all designed to make you feel like a gentleman on holiday.
