A couple of weeks ago we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Majorca and we stayed at the FERGUS Style Pollensa Park SPA in Puerto Pollensa. Choosing a hotel online can be quite tricky as you never really know what to expect but luckily a few people I know have stayed here before and told me how nice it was. We booked our holiday through Jet2 but this hotel can be booked elsewhere as well. The Hotel From the airport was had a transfer which took us right to our hotel. On the way, we also stopped off at others
The night before we flew out to Majorca from Stansted Airport we had a night’s stay at the Holiday Inn Express London – Stansted Airport Hotel. We arrived at around 1:30pm, a little earlier than planned as we’d had enough of being in central London. Not all Holiday Inn Express hotels have restaurants but I think it’s quite important for an airport hotel to have somewhere for people to eat a decent meal if they’ve been travelling a long time. The restaurant isn’t open all day though so you can only get evening meals from 6pm. This was a little late for
When I booked our holiday to Majorca we were initially supposed to fly out on the Sunday but things got changed and we ended up flying on the Monday instead. Our flight was at 9am so this meant us having to be at the airport pretty early in the morning. Living in Norfolk and not driving meant that this was pretty impossible so we knew that we would need to stay in a hotel the night before. Although there are plenty of options at Stansted Airport we chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express London – Stansted Airport Hotel. We
Before going on our family holiday to Majorca we ended up having a couple of days in London first. Engineering works on the train lines meant that train tickets were much cheaper on the Saturday rather than the Sunday so we decided to stay an extra night. However, this also meant that we needed a hotel for a night and while there is so much choice in London I like to stay in a chain where possible so I know what to expect. This time, we booked a Overnight Family Break in London at a Novotel Hotel through Buyagift.com. After the
Just before Christmas I spoke about Buy A Gift in the gift guide for travel lovers. We were lucky enough to receive two complimentary experiences through Buy A Gift, one of which was one night stay a the The Links Country Park Hotel in West Runton, Norfolk. When you order an experience through Buy A Gift you are sent a lovely presentation card with information about the experience as well as a code to redeem online. The great thing about Buy A Gift experiences is that you can exchange a lot of them online if it isn’t quite suitable for
I never like to stay in the same place twice when we go to London. I don’t know why. I guess it would make sense to stick with a hotel if we really like it but I like to stay in different areas where possible and discover something new. On our last trip we stayed in the Premier Inn London City which is in the Tower Hill area of London. Premier Inn London City is about a 20 minute walk from London Liverpool Street if you fancy walking but it’s also only 2 stops away on the tube. I made
Back in July we headed to London for a few days as a family so that I could go to Bubble London. I always like to try to look for new and different hotels for us to stay at and somewhere I’d never stayed before is Hammersmith. I discovered the area a few weeks prior when I went to see Penn & Teller and couldn’t wait to stay there. I’d picked out the Luma Concept Hotel, even though it was brand new and only been open for a matter of weeks. Before we arrived, I had a mad panic and
In April I attended my first ever Blog On Conference. The trip to Manchester from Norfolk was a very long one, especially with a toddler in tow. Actually, John sorted Erin out for the majority of the train journey while I either slept or watched YouTube videos. Having only been to this city once about 10 years ago, I made sure I booked a hotel as close to the train station as possible and that was Motel One Manchester. There aren’t many hotels closer than this, with it being a short walk away. When I say short, it’s across the road.
