When you are planning a holiday or a weekend getaway, there are lots of things that you need to think about. From the price to reviews and availability, the accommodation that you select plays a huge role in your holiday, and sometimes it can make or break a getaway. So, to ensure that you make the right choice and selection, what should you be considering?

Time of the Year – Availability
In the summer months, and also around bank holidays, you can find that accommodation in your destination gets booked up very early. The time of year that you want to go on holiday will affect your selection. If you leave choosing a place until nearer the time, you will find that availability is limited. If you are planning a summer getaway that falls in the middle of the school holidays, then think about booking months (if not a year in advance). You want to find somewhere that fits your availability and not the other way around. Of course, booking a hotel outside of crowded holiday centers (like hotels by Ilani Casino) is always easier and more affordable. When matching your availability, try and be flexible if you can – even by just a few days. Arriving or departing slightly earlier or later than you originally planned may help you secure the right accommodation for your needs.
Your Family’s Needs and Requirements
After establishing your availability, you then have to think about your family’s needs and requirements. For example, do you have young children that will want access to a playground or swimming pool? Do you have family members that need easy access to their accommodation, perhaps a room that is on the ground floor? Or do you need somewhere that can accommodate large groups? What are your needs and requirements for your family? Establishing what they are will help you book the right place the first time around.
Budget and Rating
The price of accommodation will not be your sole concern or thought when choosing accommodation, but it will be a factor. Deciding how much you have to spend on accommodation, and also considering if the rating is important to you, will help make your decision that little bit easier. For example, are you after a basic campsite with basic facilities for your family, which is no-frills and probably very little fun, walks around King Valley wineries, or are you looking to indulge in one of the luxury cottages Cornwall offers by Cornish Gems? What is your budget, and what do you want to get for your budget? What are your expectations?
Reviews and Recommendations
You want to see what other previous guests have said about the accommodation you are looking at. Reviews and recommendations for an accommodation site or provider are beneficial in your decision-making process. Looking at what other visitors and guests have said will help you to form an opinion and re-evaluate your expectations. Taking on board what others have said will also help you to fully prepare for your stay. When you know what to expect, and you know what standards are on offer, you can then feel more at ease during your stay.
Think about these top considerations, and you should ensure your holiday ticks all the right boxes.
