Choosing the best accommodation for your holidays can sometimes be difficult as you have many things to consider before making your choice. The first thing to consider is of course your budget and also what you are looking to get out of the holiday and whether there are special circumstances with any family members that need to be taken into consideration.
Here are the different types of accommodation most frequently chosen by UK holidaymakers to make the best of their holidays.
1. Hotel Rooms
A hotel room is the traditional holiday accommodation and is still fashionable for UK holidaymakers. In fact, many people prefer to stay in a hotel during their holidays especially when they are abroad because most hotels organise different activities for their clients.
2. Boutique Hotel
A Boutique hotel is an alternative for holidaymakers in search of that bit of luxury at affordable price. This particular type of accommodation is mainly chosen for short breaks because of its price which can be a higher compared to mainstream hotels; but the extra money pays for some top-notch service and amenities.
The particularity of boutique hotels is that they offer more choices to their customers. In fact, customers can say how they want their room to be and the manager of the hotel makes sure that the room is ready before their arrival. Many couples choose boutique hotels to celebrate special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays and even wedding nights as most boutique hotels have at least one honeymoon suite.
However the most adventurous holidaymakers choose to spend their holidays in a touring caravan.
Caravans are perfect for holidays as you’ ll be able to visit as many places as possible. In fact, you won’t need to have a precise destination: for instance you can decide to visit Scotland with your family and at sunset you just park the caravan in a safe place and spend the night, then the next day you drive throughout the country again.
However this accommodation solution can be very expensive as you keep driving and consuming fuel, which is not really eco-friendly. So instead of choosing a touring caravan you can rent a static caravan to spend your holidays. The advantage of static caravans is that they are bigger than touring caravans and you’ll probably have some neighbours so you won’t feel lonely. If you have children they will be able to play with other kids their age.
4. Self-catering Cottages
UK holiday makers seem to be more and more interested in self-catering cottages for their holidays, as holiday cottages offer almost the same comfort as a normal house. In fact they have all the facilities that you may need on a daily basis. In addition, most of them have private terraces ideal for family barbecues and some also have private fishing spots where you can go fishing and teach your kids how to fish.
Now you can choose which of these accommodation solutions will be ideal for your holidays this summer.
