When it comes to choosing a motel in Albury, you will find there are a number of options. You may even be trying to decide between a self-contained apartment, a hotel or a motel. So how do you know which one to choose? The most important element of choosing any accommodation is to make sure it suits your specific requirements. Whether you’re a family, a couple or a single traveller, follow these simple tips to finding your ideal Albury accommodation.
Make a List
A list? Yes a list of everything you want from your accommodation. This list can then be broken up into “essential” and “desirable” categories. For example, if you are travelling in summer with kids, you might include a pool in your list of essentials, while bbq facilities might go in the desirable category. Include everything you can think of and then you can adjust your requirements as you do your research.
Is the Price Right?
Setting a budget is important. When you are making a list of essentials and desirables for your Albury accommodation, make sure you include a budget. Some people will write down two figures – their ideal amount and the absolute maximum they are willing to spend. Often, if extras are included (free breakfast, a view, larger room etc), people are willing to go slightly over their budget. Once you have established these figures, shop around. Compare the cost of different motels, as well as the cost of the same motel on different sites. You can often get a better deal by booking direct with the motel.
Location Location Location
This is probably the most important decision you can make when choosing your Albury motel. One of the most frequent mistakes travellers make is thinking that a hotel right in the middle of the action is the best choice. While a centrally located motel is convenient for accessing food and entertainment, it’s not so convenient when you want to rest or sleep at night! Sometimes it’s possible to enjoy the best of both worlds (central and quiet) but to avoid making a noisy mistake, check out your potential accommodation on google earth and follow our next tip – read traveller reviews!
Read Feedback From Previous Guests
To get the full user experience, it’s a good idea to read traveller reviews. While it’s true that not all reviews are accurate (negative reviews in particular will often be exaggerated), they do give you an overall feel for the experience the majority of people have. Here at Albury Garden Court Motel, we love receiving feedback because it tells us what we are doing well and where we can improve. Some of our recent feedback includes:
