No sooner is one school holiday out of the way and the next one is already on the horizon. As parents search the web for the perfect mini break to refresh themselves and entertain their little darlings, taking a city break with the kids is sometimes overlooked. Not entirely surprising when parents are sometimes caught between a rock and a hard place – booking hotel rooms for everyone can be expensive, not booking different rooms means squeezing the whole brood in one room. B&Bs are more affordable, but having set breakfast times doesn’t always allow for little ones’ 6am demands or teens’ need to lie in. Restaurant and attractions bills also pile up and make the whole thing expensive. Fear not travel-loving parents, you can go on a relaxing break with kids if you choose a serviced apartment.
