When considering a trip to Somerset there is so much to consider, most importantly your choice of Somerset accommodation. As I have travelled extensively and at times, with small children I can certainly pass on some tips that may help you decide on just the right place for you and your family. When you start your search, you will want to know what is on offer, such as your hotels:
Cuisine - food facilities and options on offer
Activities - does the hotel provide any entertainment?
Hotel accommodation - room sizes and facilities
The Location - how to get there and what is close by
Booking Information - can you book online or pay via credit card
Check in and out times - very important for everyone
Although we often get out and about a lot whilst on our holidays, no one wants’ less than suitable accommodation to ruin an otherwise perfect get-a-way, do they? It is worth spending some time on choosing exactly where you will be staying as this point can actually make or brake a holiday for many people. Unfortunately, if the accommodation isn't right, the family will often forget all the wonderful times you had and fantastic trips you took and instead only remember how bad the hotel was if you don't choose wisely!
So what details should we look for before making a booking at a Somerset Hotel?
It's always nice too find a hotel has a website packed with information that features, real client testimonials, an e-brochure and even a newsletter, so you will get information direct to your in box about local events, festivals and celebrations before you depart. We may want to know the important little details too, such as do they offer say, 100 different authentic malt whiskies, does the hotel have charm and character, is it family run or even if it is basic and budget or sumptuous and luxurious? Other details are always nice to know and may even be essential for you and your family, such as do they source local produce and can they cater for the infirm or people with special diets, children or even our pets!
Perhaps most important of all- what special offers is the hotel running! Everyone will have different requirements and some places offer more options and choices than others. Often the bigger ultra modern motels are no where near as friendly or as accommodating and welcoming as one that is full of period charm and has been run by the same family for generations. Perhaps great service and caring about their guests is in part a trait handed down through the generations, who can tell. I can actually recommend a fantastic 16th century hotel in Somerset, called the Exmoor White Horse. You can check out their website for details here http://www.exmoor-whitehorse.co.uk/ I have always more than enjoyed my stay with them and their service and attention to detail, is second to none.
