Top Accommodation facilities!!!

Dear Partners,

A survey of global travellers by Blog revealed that Accommodation facilities that are most appreciated are:

1.      Free WIFI

2.      Free breakfast

3.      Free parking

4.      Private bathroom

5.      Free air-conditioning

6.      Room with a view

Leaving in a rural place we have no internet network.   All of our guests as soon as they arrived they wanted access to WIFI...

Everytime we had to explain to them that our region has no internet network but we could share our personal data with them if they needed to search for something....

Understanding how important WIFI is these days, we finally found a solution to provide free WIFI....

When in holidays, I personally prefer not to have even my mobile phone with me... I guess I am a minority...

How did we survive so many years with out it?

But is WIFI  the top of facilities???

Thanks for the info.  It is very interesting.

I totally understand what you are saying.  It is great when away on holiday to be free of technology.  But the majority of people are posting on facebook, making bookings, contacting family, etc, etc, particularly when travelling with teenage children. 

You will never win the Wi-fi issue because I have Fibre installed and still sometimes people complain it is too slow.  I think if the networks reduced their charges, when people are overseas, it wouldn't be such a problem because they could use their own data.

Thanks for your kind words.

I totally understand why people need to have WIFI everywhere...I have two children and a granddaughter and I fully understand their needs...that’s why although WIFI is very expensive due to the reason that our area has no telephone network we decided to provide it.

Last year some partners suggested to cut off WIFI in their properties...at least during lunch, dinner...but as you said you will never win WIFI...

Thanks again for posting.

Yes, WiFi is a MUST for guests.

 

Travelers are addicted to their smart phones and iPads when they are away from home:

  • Checking their bank account and transferring money online while traveling.
  • Updating their friends and family with photos of their trip.
  • Searching online for local restaurants and shops.
  • Purchasing transportation (bus, train, boat) and museum tickets online for their next day's sightseeing.
  • Live-streaming movies, TV shows and news reports in their own language for added entertainment in their guestroom.

I guess we are all addicted to technology....since everything can be accessed in internet...

It’s a shame though because we might be loosing precious moments...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

Isle of Wight …

I have a business (or rather, 2 businesses), so if I go away, I want internet access. I won't be on the computer all day while I'm on holiday, but I will need to check in morning, afternoon and evening. The rest of the time, I'll enjoy my holiday!

Yes, I understand Isle.

Business man have to check on their business even when on holidays.

Even in the summertime  people take their laptops with them in the beach bars.

Cheers.
