What's in a name?
People ask why we are called Mr & Mrs Smith... Well, firstly, our inception came about long before the film with Angelina and Brad. We're all about great escapes with your other half — a wink to couples everywhere, especially those who fancy checking into a fabulous hotel under this classic dirty-weekend pseudonym. (Among the many discoveries from our travels is the fact that most countries have their own Mr & Mrs Smiths.)

Mr & Mrs Smith started close to home, discovering boutique boltholes a quick dash from London. But then we packed our bags for the best of boutique Europe, and couldn't stop. We now bring you properties from every corner of the world – from Bali to Brazil, from Sydney to Sicily.
And then we thought, why should we have all the fun? So we opened for business in the United States last year, and have just launched in Australia and New Zealand, from new offices in Melbourne and with an expert local team. Taking Smith to Asia is next on the cards in the second half of 2009. Our Asia Pacific team works with local tastemakers, partners, correspondents and hotels to make sure the collection is as relevant to our Aussie, Kiwi and Asian customers as it is to their British, American and European friends.
The Mr & Mrs Smith website allows you to book any of the boutique hotels featured in our guides, as well as the new collections appearing all the time, exclusively online. We guarantee the best room rates available (you'll never pay more by booking with us), and because we give you a free BlackSmith membership when you first book with us, when you first book with us, you’ll get money back and added extras too.
There are some wonderful places to stay – provided you know where to find them. We offer peace of mind that these are the best in class, and you can rest assured that this is the most reliable site to book your romantic getaway through.
Why book through us? Thanks to exhaustive research, anonymous hotel reviews, and the guarantee that the room rates we get you are the best available, your special stay is in safe hands.

Whether you're looking for a quirky city boutique hotel, a stylish country guesthouse or a luxury spa hotel, we have selections to suit all budgets and moods. There is also the opportunity to purchase our own Get a Room! gift vouchers.
Our hotel guide books and website take you on a tour around the most stylish and individual hotels in destinations around the world, from Amsterdam to Zambia. We tell you the best room or suite to ask for, where to head for the tastiest lunch and signpost the best beaches and picnic spots – this is the inside track. We've even researched what's going on around each hotel, so you can make the most of your time (see our 'Worth getting out of bed for' recommendations under 'Activities'). All you need worry about is whether you want R&R or a rock 'n' roll escapade. Every boutique hotel has been visited by a Smith team member before being reviewed anonymously (and thoroughly) by a couple, and each reviewer tells their own evocative first-person tale.
Best wishes and bon voyage,
