From four-star spa hotels to cosy African roundhouses hand picked to give you an authentic experience of your destination. In Europe we usually select small, individual, family-run hotels, with comfortable and well-appointed rooms that are usually either single or twin-bedded with an ensuite shower and WC. But sometimes the accommodation itself becomes part of the adventure and offer a much more authentic experience. By contrast, in many of our long-haul destinations your accommodation is sometimes of a luxury standard, making these holidays outstanding value.
Each holiday description gives specific details but, as you would expect with non-chain hotels, there are no standards regarding room size, fixtures, fittings and views, although we will try to accommodate special requests. Where an official rating system operates we will generally state this, although local ratings do not necessarily operate to any British accommodation rating system.
We seek to ensure our accommodation meets reasonable health and safety standards. However, please note that safety standards overseas may differ from those expected in the UK.
Standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday (times do vary). Check-in times are usually 2–3pm, checkout times 11am – noon on day of departure. Therefore, if you check in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one night’s accommodation and if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to vacate your room at noon prior to leaving for the airport.
Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and arranged locally with the accommodation management.
Accommodation Included in Holiday Price
Our holidays are normally priced based on two adults sharing a twin or double room. If you are joining the group alone and you're happy to share a twin room with another member of the same sex, agree to a no smoking policy ?and reasonable norms of behaviour, our reservations team may be able to find you a sharer. If this is not possible, we reserve the right to allocate you single room at no additional charge to you.
