guest types explained

how should we define u?

Help identify your ideal overnight stays using our fun and easy to use room-tracker! This handy little feature allows users to see at a glance the kind of guest the rooms might suit specifically. Most hotels cater for a vast range of needs, but some might be more suited to your needs than others. Here’s the key:


Briefstay more like! Most likely to suit business man or woman looking for a convenient, clean and resourceful stay and a chance to chill. Options for seminar and conference searches. For the man or woman who wants everything and whose company can afford it.


If you plan to be on the move and don’t require all the bells and whistles of long-stay accommodation, look out for the car icon. Easy access to all the major travel routes, fast and smooth check-in and no-frills prices.

Stars in their Eyes

If you are going to be in town for a concert, football match, conference or theatre show then this could be the option for you. Fast, easy access to theatres, stadiums and exhibitions centres with a tasty option to dine.


Specially selected for those with appetites as big and high as their standards. This gaff is likely to have won awards for their culinary excellence or do an exceptional home-cooked breakfast. For those who love fine wines, lavish three-course menus or just generally get excited by the word ‘organic’.


Big-stays - big sizes - big food - bags to do - perfect breaks for families and parties of many. Get the most out of adjoining-rooms, fold-down beds, travel cots, entertainments, games consoles, swimming pools and play areas.


For those special little getaway breaks somewhere luxurious. Here the emphasis is on having the facilities to pamper yourself silly; whether its 24hr room service, treatment rooms, steam rooms, jacuzzis or piped video.


Romantic - erotic - call it what you will - we're all adults here. The Love-nest provides you two little love birds with the dream weekend or honey moon break - whether you're 18 or 85. But why stop at 85?


Planning to throw a party, or organising a social gathering or celebration? Then look for those little balloons. Honeymoon suites, function rooms and catering options are just some of things you might need.


For those with whiskers and tails in tow and who might need a few special allowances. If you're okay about Fido - list here.


These are going to be confined largely to the big outdoors; regions like the Lake District, the Highlands, the Peak District and Northumberland. Maybe you are looking for somewhere to dry your wet things, somewhere to park your bike or just have instant access to those hills.


From swimming-pools and spa rooms to squash rooms and tennis courts, these are your de-stress and de-tox specialists. Prepare to energize!

Hole in One

For those who just can’t get enough of the fairways. Pull on your plus fours and get into the swing of things with these perky little golf specialists. Likely to have either 9 hole or 18 hole courses on site.


Nuff said really. A property that boasts views of the sea, the river, the lake or the loch.
