Room for 5 Cons
There is no review system so guests have to cross check with www.tripadvisor.com to see if the hotel will meet their standards.
The website has a review system where guests can place reviews of their hotel stays which is helpful to other guests.
They have a travel tips section which displays tips on travelling e.g ‘Cook dinner in a crock pot to save money on vacation. Pack a crock pot, liners, dinnerware and food for a stress free dinner in your hotel. Set up the crock pot before you leave in the morning. Later when you get back to your hotel room, you’ll be greeted with the great smell of a crowd pleasing meal.’
They only list hotels with permanent bedding, no rollaways

Well I felt compelled to write this in my blog today as I woke up this morning, checked my emails and was shocked by an email I received! My website is for families of 5 or more to find accommodation (2 adults & 3 children or more). I decided early on that I wouldn’t include babies in that scenario as there are lots of hotels that don’t mind adding a travel cot to their rooms as they don’t take up that much room and a lot of parents have them with them but places that accept 3 children(excluding babies) are much harder to find.
A property called ‘Les Chenes Chambre d’hote’ in Auvergne, France was posted on my website by a lady called Gillian advertising accommodation for families of 5. The ad doesn’t go live straight away, I have to ok it to make sure it really can sleep a family of 5. I queried her ad as she had stated that her accommodation included a double room and 2 single rooms and I asked her where the 5th person would sleep. She replied by informing me the 5th person would sleep on a ‘lit depliant’ or a baby cot, in any of the rooms. I replied to her with this email:
Hi Gillian, thanks for clarifying that. Unfortunately I’m looking for hotels/guetshouses that can accommodate at least 2 adults and 3 children (not including babies) as there are quite of hotels that have a family room to sleep 4 and don’t mind adding a travel cot free of charge. Its the extra bed for the 3rd child that is the problem. Its a shame as your ‘apartment’ sounds great.
Polite enough I thought and explained why I wouldn’t be adding her property to the site, so you can imagine my surprise when I awoke this morning to this email:
Well i think you are an utter fool! and i am astonished by your
narrow minded ness
I’ve been a B & B owner for 20 years and more in France
and I have always had loads of families, French Belgium and English,
Families are my speciality !
My price is excellent as it includes breakfast and is most welcome
I accommodate families up to 6 and most of them have babies, or small
children and even if they have to sleep on a lit depliant , children are
free up to 3 years old!
You are making a mistake by having too narrow a view on accommodation
bye bye have a nice life and remember word of mouth goes everywhere
and i surely won’t recommend your site to the hundreds of families who
pass through here
Wow, somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed!! I didn’t think her email warranted a reply.
I decided to start this blog to document my progress with finding rooms for families of 5 or more. I started Room for 5 because I was so frustrated at the lack of family rooms available for families of 5 or more (read more in my about me page) so as you can imagine I knew this wasn’t going to be an easy process. I first started out by looking in search engines for keywords like, “family room for 5″ , ”family room sleeps 5″ to find rooms thats were available, then I used the same keywords but added key areas like London, Paris & major Airports. It wasn’t long before I had exhausted all options on the search engines. I have been using hotel search engines and actually putting specific requests in but I have to say they are not helpful. Even when I key in room = 1, guests = 5, the results were disappointing and not acurate. I have emailed thousands of hotels to find these sought after rooms and after 4 months I now have over 500 hotels listed worldwide on Room for 5. Most of these rooms are not even listed on the hotels website so people don’t know about them so i am sure there are lots more out there, on with the quest!!
