The county of Staffordshire has a thriving tourist economy, so there's no shortage of good hotels in the area. Mid-range three star accommodation is commonplace. Most visitors to the area will be taking part in family activities on most, or even all of their days away, so the hotel is only really somewhere to crash at the end of a fun but tiring day. For this reason, three star hotels are the most popular choice for most visitors. After all, what's the point in paying out for luxuries that won't be used?
Three star hotels are usually great value for money as well as being clean and professionally run. They may be limited in their added ‘extras’ that come as part of the package with four and five star hotels, but they still offer great value and a visitor-focused experience that should be perfect for families or business travellers. Breakfast will usually be included in the room price, but some hotels will give you the option to opt out of breakfast if you're planning an early start.
Extra Business Facilities
Many well-known large hotel chains offer three star accommodation, and their complexes may also include extra facilities such as meeting rooms, cafés, bars and restaurants. Independent three star hotels may not have so many facilities close to hand, but they tend to be located closer to local restaurants and pubs, and many will offer evening meals as well as breakfast.
Although three star hotels don't provide all the bells and whistles that four and five star accommodation does, they're still extremely pleasant places to stay. You may not get your bags carried to your room or 24-hour room service, but you will get free WiFi, good service, a hearty breakfast and a comfy bed. You are also guaranteed the warm, friendly welcome that’s inherent in all Staffordshire hotels. Three star hotels in the Staffordshire area will also provide TVs, a phone and tea and coffee making facilities.
Generally, three star hotels are more likely to have their own bars, restaurants, gyms and conference roomsm and there will often be more room options. Shared bathrooms aren’t acceptable in accommodation rated as three star, so you can look forward to your own en-suite facilities.
Perfect for Families
If you're planning a holiday in the Staffordshire area and you're on a budget, most three star hotels offer family rooms that can sleep two adults and a maximum of four children. If you're on business or exploring alone, single room supplements are usually kept reasonably low.
Laundry services, parking, en suite bathrooms and many other features are common in three star accommodation, and if you need to work while you stay, rooms with desks are also commonplace.
Staffordshire itself is a fantastic holiday destination and is packed full of theme parks, museums, activity days and beautiful English countryside. It's central location makes it ideal for exploring much of the UK, including the Cotswolds to the south, the surrounding Midlands, Cheshire to the north and even North Wales.
So, whether you're travelling for business or looking for affordable accommodation for a family break, three star Staffordshire hotels are well worth looking into.
