‘We have been advertising in The Spectator for many years, and the number of enquiries – and bookings – which derive year after year from our ads is highly satisfactory. We do very little advertising in any other magazine or newspaper, and given our success with The Spectator, I feel that we really don’t need to do so!’

Great work! Just to say that I had one inquiry , following the ad last week, which has become a firm 3-week rental for a family in August. And they sound charming. So it was well worth it. Many thanks.

Paul,

I just wanted to let you know that some guests have just arrived and I showed them into our 2 bedroom penthouse suite (which they loved !). They are here for two weeks and it’s obviously a substantial booking for us at this time of year. They told me they spotted our recent advert in The Spectator. Also here are repeat Spectator guests from last year – so that’s really encouraging!

Warmest wishes,
