Travel – Our stay at Hilton Hotel Windsor

We visited Legoland Windsor in the summer holidays and had the lovely opportunity to lodge at Hilton Hotel Windsor for 3 nights. The hotel was really good, we had a nice time there and will definitely visit again in the future. Legoland was all shades of amazing and I will be writing a post on that in the next few days, so look out for that write-up. For now, let me tell you all about our wonderful stay at Hilton Hotel Windsor.

Checking in was quick and the staff were quite helpful. I liked the family room we got. it was big and well spaced out. The room amenities were spot on. We had everything we needed and the beds were so comfortable. I like the fact that the kids had their own beds set up for them as well. Everything was laid out perfectly and the room decor was luxurious as always with Hilton Hotels. We loved going back to our rooms every evening.

We ate many meals at the hotel. The breakfast was good but usually busy thanks to the location and the time of the year. However we always made sure to go down on time so we could get a good table and enough to get bellies fed. The kids had dinner for free as well and that was so helpful. It was nice to go back to the hotel for dinner and get few dinner for the kiddies once we paid for ours. I think that is a lovely incentive.

I also love the fact that there were lots of sockets available in the room to charge our gadgets. Recently, I have noticed a reduction in hotel bedroom sockets and I wonder why. So I was pleased this was not the case with Hilton Hotel Windsor.

Overall, I would recommend Hilton Hotel Windsor especially if you are planning on visiting Legoland. It is a few minutes drive away from the theme park and quite affordable when you compare what you get with what you pay. I will definitely stay in this hotel again whenever I am in the area. We had a great time overall.

The only issue I had was with the noisy families around but then again that is kind of expected because of the time of the year we travelled and the fact that almost everyone there was there for Legoland. So the kids were very hyper and noisy. We just got on with it.

Finding The Best Restaurants While Visiting NYC

*Collaborative post.

When you go out for a meal with family and friends you want to pick somewhere which will offer you more than something which is merely tasty. You should make the most of the experience and seek to try new foods and different cultures. After all, if you prepare a certain dish in your home, then why eat it when you leave the house? If you are visiting one of the many restaurants in NYC, then it undoubtedly means that you are going to be spending your money, and so you want to be spending it on something which is worthwhile; something memorable and enjoyable – something which you will be telling people about at work the next day.

First and foremost, why not try food from a different country and experience a different culture? A lot of people shy away from trying something new because they automatically assume that they won’t like it. For instance, when it comes to Indian food, people assume that everything is spicy and suited to those who have a taste for all things hot. However, there are some fantastic dishes for those who like something milder, such as korma and pasanda. And these milder dishes aren’t just related to the main course, there are the likes of poppadoms and the cool fresh cucumber dip raita as well. After all, a restaurant’s menu will be suited to encompass dishes for all different taste buds and thus you are bound to find something you like.

Dine in a fine restaurant

It goes without saying that when you visit a restaurant the main component you need to have a memorable night is succulent food. However, it is not the only factor that goes into creating a great culinary experience in one of the restaurants in NYC. Imagine if you had a delicious meal, but were sitting in a boring, uninspiring and dirty restaurant with rude staff – your evening would be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Therefore, to really ensure you pick somewhere which will make for an exciting evening, you need to consider the restaurant’s atmosphere. Read reviews on the internet and get a feel for what people have said about the restaurant and whether the experience was a pleasant one.

The atmosphere is something which again links to trying food from different cultures and countries. This is because the restaurant is bound to incorporate traditional styles and adornments. Therefore the evening is intriguing and interesting as you get to experience something new in excess of the food. This is why it is advisable to seek family run businesses as well, rather than big mass chains which use generic design settings. Also, take the time to look for special offers and menus. Some restaurants offer theater menus for those last minute Broadway tickets. You can easily hunt down deals and discounts online.  

All in all, when visiting one of the many restaurants in NYC you need to seek somewhere new, delicious and atmospheric in order to make it a night to remember.

 

The Best Family Road Trip Begins With A Plan

*Collaborative post.

With road trips representing 39% of US vacations, it comes as no surprise that British families are beginning to adopt the trend. Known for being a great way to spend time with your kids and hitting up all of the sights to see, road tripping is a great choice for many, no matter where you are in the world. However, if you’re thinking about taking your family on a road trip, having a plan beforehand can not only help the trip go more smoothly, but can ensure everyone will have a great time.

Planning ahead

When it comes to planning the best family road trip possible, it’s important to start early. Making lists, packing, and deciding what car you’ll take is imperative to having a smooth trip – and you’re going to need time to plan everything just so. Depending on where you want to go and what you want to do and see, it’s important to do your research as early on as possible to make sure you’re informed of possible entry fees, rules, regulations and opening hours of the places you want to visit – after all, the last thing you want is to get a nasty surprise on the day of your trip.

Making sure you bring along everything you will need is a must, including clothes, blankets and snacks. While a simple checklist can ensure that you don’t forget anything, it’s important that you begin packing at least four days to a week before you embark, depending on how long your trip is. And when it comes to packing for the children, allowing them to bring a small bag of toys can be a great idea for entertainment along the way – an in-car DVD player is also a good thing to think about, especially if your trip will be on the longer side.

The best places to go

On any road trip, it’s important to know where you’re headed – or at least know where you want to stop along the way. While there are many great places to visit, there are a few that really stand out when it comes to captivating the family, and can help give you some ideas when you’re mapping out a route.

Over an hour away from London, West Sussex is a great destination choice for any family planning a road trip this summer. Filled with history, West Sussex has plenty for your family to explore – including Arundel Castle – a restored castle from the medieval times. This trip is perfect for inquisitive children who like to learn, and is a great way for them to see a part of history in real life. However, if you’re looking for a more beachy road trip filled with swimming, fishing and the like, then look no further than a route through Cornwall, located in the southwest of Great Britain. This route is truly one with amazing scenery, as there is plenty to see and explore, from beaches to coastal trails. The seaside villages are a great stopping point, and allow for the perfect place to explore shops and restaurants.

Road trips can be a great vacation idea for any family – and planning one doesn’t have to be stressful. By planning and packing ahead of time and doing your research when mapping a route, you’ll be able to plan the perfect road trip that your family is sure to enjoy.
