We help ensure gay travelers can travel and feel welcome anywhere they go. To help in that aim, we have added gay-friendly hotels as alternative to our community-based room and apartment sharing.
How do we select and designate these gay-friendly hotels?
To vet their welcoming attitude and acceptance of the LGBTQ community, we consider many criteria including: support or affiliation to LGBTQ organizations such as IGLTA, TagApproved, NGLCC (USA), LGBTNetwork, etc. We also look at how hotels reach out to the LGBTQ community (LGBTQ section on websites, marketing spend on LGBTQ outlets, staff training (Out Now), etc.) and we consider their HRC ratings (USA).
When booking more than 5 rooms, different policies and additional supplements may apply.
WiFi is available in all areas and is free of charge.
No parking available.
Pets are not allowed.
All children are welcome. One child under 16 years is charged GBP 75 per night when using existing beds. One older child or adult is charged GBP 75 per night in an extra bed. The maximum number of extra beds in a room is 1. The maximum number of total guests in a room is 2. There is no capacity for cots in the room.
