Scott Manson likes hotels, and writing about them, so who better to have as one of our chief wordsmiths (excuse the pun)? A former editor of Ministry, Loaded and BA’s High Life magazine, he has travelled the world with DJs, rock stars and supermodels. Sometimes he didn’t even have to carry their bags. He’s a regular travel writer for the Evening Standard and a contributor to the Sunday Times Style magazine, and is editor of Ace Tennis magazine. Scott wrote our feature on great beach bars.
