Vegans often get a rough time of it when travelling.

Just last year ‘no menus for vegans’ was seventh on The Good Hotel Guide’s top 10 gripes of 2017.

And rightly so – it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth when you’ve paid loads to stay in a hotel and there’s nothing for you eat there.

The smallest gesture can totally change your experience – I had a hotel leave a flask of soy milk in my room last week, when I usually have to have black in-room coffee, as I can’t drink the UHT dairy milk that hotels usually provide. I did a happy dance around my room while mainlining milky coffee.

The chef even concocted a spread made from olive oil to spread on my toast at breakfast, and it made my day. (Shout out to Skeabost House Hotel in the Isle of Skye.)
