Publisher's Round up, 17 August

This week's top picks are upmarket, sexy deals packed with the finer things in life – all at a fraction of the original price. Read on for champagne, upgrades, skewered shrimp, castles, chocolate, Vegas and Hugh Grant.

£110 -- Spain: Medieval Castle Stay for 2 w/Dinner, Reg £251

We picked up this hotel offer from our Spanish team and I think it’s the hottest deal of the week. For a total of £110 for two people for two nights (£55 per night), you can stay in a National Monument Spanish castle. Plus, you’ll get breakfast, champagne, chocolates and dinner for two with appetisers, skewered shrimp, pork tenderloin, tiramisu, champagne and carignan wine. It’s a saving of over 50% on the regular price and a ridiculous deal for such a stunning experience.

£99 -- Cotswolds: Condé Nast Hot List Hotel inc Dinner

This boutique hotel is in a gorgeously quaint Cotswolds village, and at £99 per person for a 2-night break, it’s over 50% off the usual price. Plus, this mini break at the 18-th century stone Cotswolds88 Hotel includes continental breakfast and dinner on both nights. Not a bad deal for a Condé Nast Traveller Hot List Hotel that won the Cotswold Life Hotel Restaurant of the Year award for 2011.

£69 -- The Hempel: Champagne Dinner for 2 w/Canapés, Reg £139

Dinner for two with Taittinger champagne, amuse-bouches, a 3-course meal and coffees or teas, all for £69. That’s 50% off what you’d usually pay at this luxury Hyde Park boutique hotel, named one of the world's sexiest hotels by The Telegraph. Plus, it’s where Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant filmed the final wedding scene in "Notting Hill".

£1399 -- Mexican Riviera Cruise w/Vegas, LA & San Fran Stays

It may seem pricey but there’s so much included in this unique package it’s actually several deals in one: Flights. A Vegas city break, a 4-star stay in LA, a 7-night full-board Mexican Riviera cruise (with a free upgrade to an Oceanview Cabin), a San Francisco retreat and a 2-day Go San Francisco Card, with free entry to 45 attractions. Plus, not only does this deal tick all the right boxes, it’s also almost £600 less than what it would cost to put everything together separately.
