Where you stay while on holiday matters. It could make a world of a difference to your trip. Think of planning every last detail of your journey but neglect the accommodation? Why leave it to chance when a good night’s rest in comfort may be just the thing you need after a long day’s travel, along with a hot water shower. If you don’t plan ahead, you could get stuck in a drafty room with leaking pipes and no warm water. Take a look at some of these hotels to see if they take your fancy while you’re on your holiday.
