I am shocked at the amount of failed messages I am receiving from Hotels & Guesthouses. For every ten I email I get about 2 back that are not valid anymore. Can you imagine how much business they are missing out on? Particularly from foreign guests who need to use email as calling the hotel can be quite costly and daunting, particularly for non native speakers. Email is a fundemental part of everyday life and is more favourable than the traditional snail mail so come on Hotel/Guesthouse owners get your finger out and check your email addresses are valid!!

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!!
