How to Make Your Stay in Self-Catering Accommodation a More Pleasant Experience

While it is certainly in accommodation providers’ best interests to make sure your stay is as pleasant and enjoyable as possible, there are still things you can do to amplify your enjoyment, and to make sure it is a successful stay. After all, regardless of the effort of others, and the excitement of the trip, staying anywhere else than the home you are used to can be stressful. So, let us take a look at ways you can minimise the hassle, and get the most out of your stay in whatever self-catering accommodation you choose in Graaff-Reinet.

You Know Yourself Well – Use It to Your Advantage

While accommodation providers can do a great job at anticipating your needs, no one knows you better than you do, and you may have specific preferences. You know what you love and what you don’t, what you use every day, and what you expect from your self-catering accommodation. If you and your family take more than one bath or shower a day, take the precaution of packing extra towels just in case, so that you do not run out before housekeeping has had a chance to replace your room’s towels. A simple tip to make your stay more enjoyable, and feel like you have a piece of home with you, is to pack your own toiletries. This includes your own face cloth and your specific brand of toothpaste. Do not assume these will automatically be available, and even if they are, they might not be of the type that you are used to.

Take Control of Noise

Depending where you are headed, the din of traffic, hooters, and even just the voices from a television set in the next room can disturb your night’s sleep. Many travellers do not think about it until it is too late, so stock up on earplugs that can help you cancel out any annoying or loud noises that might interrupt your sleep. If you stay with us, of course, peace and quiet are standard.

Pack Slippers and Other Comfort Items

Slippers serve multiple purposes on the road, making you feel more cosy, particularly during the colder moths of the year. They are also amazingly effective at making you feel more comfortable and at home, even in a strange environment. The same goes for other items you enjoy using, such as your hairbrush and dryer, or something as simple as a cheese grater that you can use in your self-catering kitchen. Why should you make do with something that you already have and enjoy using?
