Fiona Duncan began her career at Nova magazine and Woman’s Own in Swinging Seventies London. She went on to write COOKING AFLOAT and to help create, and contribute to, the influential CHARMING SMALL HOTEL GUIDES series, published by Duncan Petersen. As well as a travel and guidebook journalist, Fiona is now the Sunday Telegraph‘s Hotel Guru and a major contributor to its travel pages. She co-founded The Hotel Guru website where she and a fellow group of well-renowned critics provide expert advice on hotels across the globe, espousing those with character, authenticity and commitment, and casting out the bland, the boring and the rip-off.
Fiona was a recent guest of Katie Derham on BBC Radio 4’s Traveller’s Tree and is in demand as a judge for prestigious hotel awards such as the AA Hospitality Awards. She currently divides her time between London and Hampshire’s New Forest, where she lives with her husband and two sons.
