Each year, more than 1,000 independent boutique hotels apply to become a part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio. However, only 5 percent are invited to join the brand, meaning travelers can expect quality amenities, inviting atmospheres and impeccable accommodations when staying at an SLH-affiliated hotel. What's more, mystery inspectors visit the brand's 500-plus properties annually to ensure that guests are experiencing the highest standards of service and value. This brand markets itself as a champion of hidden treasures, so no two Small Luxury Hotels are alike. However, one consistent perk of the SLH brand is the free-to-join INVITED program. This three-tiered benefits system includes rewards like room upgrades and free breakfast. Most importantly, this brand gives customers options: Its portfolio includes everything from family-friendly historical inns to adults-only resorts with Michelin-starred restaurants. Keep in mind, most of the brand's hotels are located outside of the United States, with numerous outposts in Europe and Asia. You can explore several Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties on our Best Hotels rankings.

    Hayfield Manor
    Cork
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3488 reviewsTripAdvisor (3488)
    Free WiFi

    According to recent travelers, Hayfield Manor feels like the set of "Downton Abbey." As you pull up to this property in southern Ireland, you'll notice foliage climbing along much of the three-story building's brick exterior. Inside, you'll find traditional manor house features like dark wood furniture, neutral color palettes and crown molding throughout the hotel's 88 accommodations. Though the property maintains design elements from its early 19th-century roots, it also embraces the needs of 21st-century guests: Each guest room and suite offers a variety of modern amenities, including a heated towel rack in the marble bathroom, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, free Wi-Fi and a voltage power converter. To work on your putting game before hitting the links (there are five golf courses within 15 miles of the property), practice with your in-room golf putters. When you're ready to explore the property, visit the on-site spa or enjoy afternoon tea or dinner in Orchids Restaurant. On select evenings, you can participate in wine tastings, which are paired with dishes chosen by Orchids Restaurant's executive chef. And once you've decided to venture off the property, you'll discover Ireland's famous Blarney Castle is located less than 6 miles northwest.
