Gemma Newland

Frequent flyer

Gemma has spent more years than she cares to admit in the marketing and events industry. She travels so much that check-in staff at Heathrow now greet her by name! Gemma has a pathological dislike of large, purpose-built business hotels and has her own mental checklist that includes: Do the staff have a sense of humour even when I'm losing mine because the plane is late again? Can they make a great cosmo? Is the hotel more beautiful than the shoes I'm wearing? Would I come here with the girls or my lovely man for a long weekend? Four yeses and they're on her (and our) hotlist.
