In our stressful world, where near-constant internet access can make it hard to get away from all of those emails which you really ought to deal with, it can be hard to find quality time to spend with your family. As such, when I go away on holiday, I like to find hotels which include services and amenities — other than just constant wifi access — to provide opportunities to fill my holiday-time focusing on those who matter most.
