Keep­ing with the US theme, the Austin Mo­tel just popped its re­vamped head over the para­pet. Beau­ti­fully re-imag­ined by hote­lier Liz Lam­bert, the Austin — in hip Austin, Texas — is an old mo­tel made good. The rooms are clas­sic mo­tel — they start tiny — but done up in vi­brant colours and clean fin­ishes, which give an airy feel­ing to the place. There is a cen­tral court­yard for gos­sip and, of course, the oblig­a­tory pool. From $210 in a room with one full-sized bed.
