When Is the First Thing you Do When You Get To Your Hotel Room?

When it comes to travelling I love it , if I could jet off every other week I would but I love the holiday build up the anticiatption , the planning , picking up the tips packing the case ~ organising everyone. Where as my husband isn't relaxed till we get there and the same when coming home , I am just chilled all the way and back , it puzzles my family that I do talk about planning the next holiday before we have even been on the one we are going on!






What are the first things that you do when you plonk yourself down in your hotel room when you have arrived for me it is


1. Check I have 2 pillows ~ otherwise no one can rest.

2. Make a cup of tea and nibble the free biscuits.

3. Check out the toiletries.

4 Unpack


I hear hear you screaming check out the view the view .. you see I combine this with number 2 on my list while my husband and son are channel hopping happily and whooping they found the sport! 



I looking a well known travel site you know the one where you read about hotel reviews and this made me giggle about what people did in relation to when they got to their hotel in Vegas.


"Toss bag in room, do a quick search of room to make sure there isn't a dead body or somebody missing a kidney in the bathtup... head to to play."


I do also check out the cleanliness of the room as that is an absolute , I have waited a year for a special holiday I want to be relaxed !

I also check out the local information in any brochures and then get ready to rumble , it is not unheard of me after freshening up after an 8 hour flight depending on the time of day when I land to get straight out exploring !

  1. I love that persons comment, think they might watch too much CSI? I haven't been away for quite a few years, but the first thing I do is ohh and ahh at the room, I am nearly always surprised at how nice they are. Then I confess I do check out the view and unpack (if it is a long stay such as a week or two). Then it is off to check out the hotel and have a swim, I like a good swim when I arrive.

  2. Ha ha way too much Law and Order / CSI viewing there! After I've put my bag down I go straight to the window to see what's out there. I generally don't bother with a cuppa until the morning, we don't normally stay in the hotel long as we want to explore the area. Unless we've just arrived after a long day on the motorbikes, in which case we dump the stuff, have a wash, and then have a nap!

  3. As a blogger the first thing I always do is make everyone stand back and not put down any bags until I have photographed the room from all angles so I have great, uncluttered shots for if I decide to blog about the trip!! My long suffering family are used to this now - it's all part of the holiday!!

  12. I always dump the bag on the bed, and run around looking out of the window and into the bathroom and wardrobe. It's always interesting what you find in a hotel wardrobe.

  17. One of the first things I do is make sure there are enough pillows on the bed too! We don't tend to use the tea and coffee making facilities, but we do make sure we pack the biscuits to eat later when the children want a snack.
