Accommodation can make or break a holiday. If you chose the wrong accommodation you may find that it has a knock on effect on the whole of your holiday and that you simply do not enjoy it. You need to think carefully about what it is you want from your accommodation before booking and ensure you read plenty of reviews. If you are just wanting a place to get your head down after a night out with friends or family then the cost of the room and location (how close it is to where you are going out) will probably be of high priority. If on the other hand you are wanting to go somewhere that you can relax in the bar, enjoy the surroundings or spend time in a spa then the facilities will probably be one of the main things to look out for.
Choosing whether to stay in a hotel or B and B is also another option you may need to consider. Many B and B’s have a policy where you have to be in by a certain time before the doors are locked, this is especially true if the B and B is also someone’s home. If you are not planning on returning until late at night or early hours of the morning, a hotel with a 24 hour reception may be better.
