Lets take a short hotel break – anywhere, I don't mind I just want to get away.
- But it has to have a ... gym, swimming pool, spa, bar, restaurant, disco ...
It is not easy to pick a hotel for a weekend away. I took on the task this week, all I wanted was a good deal, or so I thought.
A nice two night BB including a dinner – no expectations, just somewhere to get away and relax.
|The hotel has to have a spa.|
Maybe somewhere new, where I have not been before. (That really tightens the list!)
A massage would be nice though – so it has to have a spa.
The other half has started a new training regime. “It has to have a gym” he pipes up.
City or country I ponder. It would be lovely to take in some scenery – city life needs too much energy we need R&R. Country it is.
A castle would be perfect - too expensive though.
Maybe an old Manor house or a spanking new resort.
Comfort is a must.
I whittle the selection down to a handful and show off the contestants.
“This one is nice” I display, pointing out its recent awards, and the superb high gloss photos.
“Oh it doesn't have a swimming pool” was the response.
|Oh and the hotel needs a swimming pool ...|
It needs to have a swimming pool? “Well it would be nice” I am told.
So we pick the one with the swimming pool, gym, spa, nice price and attractive website.
(Well if you can't keep a good website – what state must the hotel be in?!)
It only took a few hours ... over a few days. We were not looking for much really, something simple ;o)
What makes or breaks a hotel selection for you?
