    Self serviced apartments with kitchens are so much easier than hotels once you have children.

    Travelling with others we have also stayed in houses or villas which has also worked out well.

    Apartments. Having a kitchen and a laundry is non-negotiable for us these days. We also try to get a 2 bedroom place, so the boys can have naps at different times and not wake each other at night. (We sleep with our 10 month old in a portacot in our room.) Once they're a little older, they can share the second room.

    Apartments with a kitchenette or cabins. If its a quick stay and we probably won't be in the room much we have stayed in a 1 bedroom with two double beds.

    We mostly get cabins at caravan parks s we need to sleep 7 or 8. We have found a few hotel with big family rooms or gotten two rooms (I hate this option).

    Depends on the length of stay and the cost. We have found a few regular places we stay at have quite large rooms so there's plenty of room for the 5 of us. If we were to stay longer than 3 days somewhere though we will get 2 rooms.

    Apartment with a kitchenette, overnight we do hotels.

    We do a snow trip every year, and we generally have to be pretty resourceful with our hotel stay on that one.

    Caravan parks, in cabins.

    Our fav one has tvs in both bedrooms, bath, shower, seperate Toilet.

    This gives our boys (14.5mnths and 5yrs) their own space and we don't feel like we have to worry about people through the wall.

    They usually have full kitchen facilities too so i can cook reasonable meals too.

    We only have 1 DS so stay at hotels.
    Our neighbours were debating this earlier in the year as they have 3 kiddos and recently went on a 4 week trip to the USA, they ended up doing suites in hotels (not budget friendly) but the Mum didn't want to travel around cooking and cleaning up after everyone, I agreed with her!
