It was the first time I would be taking my family, wife and two kids for a vacation to the UK and I was very apprehensive about hotel accommodation till someone mentioned I do my booking through luxury hotels finder. The first thing that struck me when I visited the site was the ease with which I could navigate around the site. A convenient search engine required me to fill in details and returned me with quotes from nearly 1300 hotels that would accommodate 4 of us in a room.
The range of hotel accommodation was from budget to luxury catering to every type of need I could possibly imagine, and the hotel pages listed all their amenities in detail for me to peruse. Guest ratings for the hotels also provided me with a yardstick to decide. A location map made sure I would be able to find the hotel easily upon my arrival in London. The search engine also gave me the option to refine my search according to location, price, brand property type and features.
Apart from regularly using www.asap.co.uk/hotels/ to book hotel accommodation for all my family vacations, I have been using the site to book accommodations for my business trips and for trips booked from my office as it also provides cheap car hire services . It offers the most reliable and convenient service and I readily recommend it to everyone.
