Canons Court Mews, Wotton-Under-Edge, UK

The cottage was larger than I had expected and lovely and light from the many windows. There was a fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine, fridge, oven, kettle and toaster. Washing up liquid and tea towel were provided. There was a tray of tea, coffee, milk, sugar and biscuits on the side.

Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel, Birmingham

Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel is in a beautiful restored 17th century building. It still has many original features including exposed wooden floors, stone carvings and log fires. You can really feel the history when you stay in the building and can imagine royalty staying there.

Forenom Hostel Vantaa Aviapolis, near Helsinki airport, Finland

I have never been brave enough to stay in a hostel with the kids before but we were faced with an eight hour layover overnight in Helsinki last night. The prospect of missing an entire nights sleep and spending the night in an airport with tired, overstimulated children wasn’t very appealing

Our visit to The Disneyland Hotel, Paris

We were actually taken aback as we entered the huge lobby! The large, spotless reception area, with its giant chandelier, sweeping staircase, subtle disney themes and sofas, larger than my living room, was like stepping straight into a fairy tale castle!

Muthu Clumber Park Hotel and Spa, Sherwood Forest, UK

We were staying in one of their executive rooms and first impressions as we entered were wow! The room was spacious and had a king sized bed, desk and armchair. There was plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. The window overlooked the pretty courtyard in the center of the hotel.

Travelodge Newcastle Central, UK

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are decently sized, clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a good location if you are visiting Newcastle. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this great value hotel next time I am in the area!

Holiday Inn, Stevenage, UK

for a hotel where we paid more to get four star service, we were not impressed with the room or TV size, the lack of wifi, level of customer service dealing with issues, or the cleanliness of the bathroom. We have stayed in less expensive four star hotels and definitely better three star hotels.

Premier Inn, Southport, UK

Breakfast was not included in the price of the room but you could eat at the pub attached for a very reasonable price. Kids eat free too so three of us had a delicious buffet breakfast, including drinks, for £8.99.

Would we go back? Yes without a doubt!
