Choosing a Lake District hotel

This western British land is as lovely as it is humbling. With its magnificent mountainous scenery, one can set out on a series of hiking escapades or yet, sitting at the highest altitude in Great Britain, enjoy the extended horizon in a chaise longue over an extended cup of tea. Feel the pull? Then apart from setting the timing of your vacation, you have to decide on an affordable hotel meeting all your requirements. Booking.com alone offers 376 properties in all; therefore, on this densely populated accommodation map, you do have to be clear about what you are looking for to land just there.

Location, type and size issues

 

This area is indeed replete with national parks and sightseeing sites. Therefore, your exact hotel location should depend on the locations you are intent to visit. Having, thus, restricted the perimeter, you then need to decide whether you would prefer a rural to an urban setting. Would you prefer an Edwardian house to an ultra-modern hotel? Would you need a family-run hotel or a large establishment fit for groups of any size?

 

 

Facilities and amenities included?

 

If you are sports-oriented or plan to have a family vacation, then the availability of sports facilities, spa amenities and kid's corners, playgrounds and clubs is essential. The presence of restaurants within and around the hotel is no less of importance. Make sure that you tick the restaurant and/or amenities box, if the hotel search website allows for such, then read reviews of people who have already been in the hotels you have shortlisted.

 

 

Pets included?

 

If you cannot imagine your trip without your pet, then pet-friendly hotels is what you should definitely specify this in your search preferences or in your inquiry to the hotel prior to booking. Many hotels are reluctant to welcome your pet since this requires special after-care (cleaning and disinfection) of the room you are to occupy.

 

Booking.com is a place where you can immediately know the number of properties in the area you are interested in, the availability of these properties, the price, whether cancellation comes for free. Filters can sift the properties by price, star rating, hotel type and facilities.
