We are the travel and accommodation experts you can rely on.
So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve chosen this destination and now you have to pick a hotel. 10 years back, you ‘d have most likely visited your local travel representative and relied on the in person advice you were offered by the so-called ‘experts’. The 21st Century way to pick and book your hotel is of course on the Internet, by using travel sites.
But how do you sort through the amazing options on offer? And more significantly, do you really rely on the pictures and descriptions of the hotels that they have granted themselves with the inspiration of getting reservations?
Traveler reviews can be useful, but you need to exercise caution. They are frequently prejudiced, in some cases out of date, and may not serve your interests at all. How do you understand that the functions that are very important to the reviewer are very important to you? Then there’s the problem of the reviewer’s inspiration. The more reviews you read, the more you see how they tend to cluster at the extremes of viewpoint. On one end, you have upset customers with axes to grind; at the other, you have happy guests who lavish praise beyond belief.
You’ll not be amazed to find out that hotels in some cases post their own radiant reviews or that rival’s line up for the chance to lambaste the competition with bad reviews. It makes good sense to consider what is really important to you when choosing a hotel. You should then pick an online hotel directory site that offers current, independent, objective information that really matters.
Here are some of the key facts you should bear in mind:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for instance, near to the theme park, or convenient for the airport, then location is critical. Any good directory site should offer a location map of the hotel and its surroundings. There should be distance charts to the airport provided along with some kind of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is essential to pick a hotel that makes you feel comfy – modern or standard furnishings, local design or international, formal or relaxed. The perfect hotel directory site should let you understand of the alternatives available.
3. Restaurants, Cafes, and Bars: local color is excellent but the hotel’s own restaurants and bars can play a vital part in your stay. You should be aware of choice, style and whether or not they are clever or casual. A good hotel report should tell you this, and particularly about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should always thoroughly consider the type of facilities you need from your bedroom and find a hotel that has those you consider important. The hotel directory site should elaborate on matters such as bed size, Internet Access (its cost, whether there is WIFI or wired broadband connection), Complimentary features, views from the room and high-end offerings like a Pillow menu or Bath menu, choice of cigarette smoking or non-smoking rooms, etc
. These things really do matter and any good hotel directory site should give you this sort of advice on bed rooms – not just the number of rooms which is the usual choice!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more vital to the household traveler than business traveler. You should learn just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory site and make your decision from there. Something worth looking for is whether the hotel offers a baby sitter service. For business traveler wanting to leave children, this is of course really pertinent too – possibly a hotel that is not child-friendly would be something more appropriate!
6. Leisure Facilities: the site should offer an in-depth analysis of leisure services within the hotel – spa, pool, health club, sauna – along with details of any other facilities nearby such as golf courses.
7. Special Needs: the hotel directory site should advise the visitor of each hotel’s special needs services and accessibility policy. Whilst again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely vital to some.
Finally and most notably, the quality hotel directory site assessment team should have checked out the hotel in question regularly, met the staff, slept in a bedroom and tasted the food. They should experience the hotel as only a hotel guest can and it is only then that they are really in a strong position to discuss the hotel.
with the above info, there is no reason why you should not find the best hotel in the Hills District of Sydney. All the best!
