finding the right hotel

Finding a good hotel is the essence of having a good vacation. A good way to ensure that the one you pick is actually all it says it is, is to look for reviews of the hotel by travelers. Every hotel site will toot its own horn, glorify its rooms whether they are luxury hotel rooms or simple B&B rooms, and so it is left to the judgment of your travel agent and yourself to decipher all the hotel-speak and see the reality. Going by recommendations of people you know is by far the best way to ensure that the hotel actually is going to be a great place. Happy planning!

It's quite important really!

that is so true - also I look for smaller off-beat places to stay in rather than large hotel chains - but this is always a risk - some times pays off and you find some gems but some times it backfires!

I found a website called Holidays Uncovered which is great for ensuring that your traveling or holiday break is not ruined by inadequate accommodation. There is reviews on thousands of hotels and resorts, so it is definitely worth a look to avoid any expected disappointments.
