Not many go for 5 star hotels since they are pretty expensive. But those who can afford should think twice before taking the plunge. If one spends a lot of time in 5 star hotels enjoying their ambiance then it is worth spending on those hotels. But for those tourists that only come to sleep it is a sheer waste of money. Package holidays have hotels that are great but tourists never get to enjoy them except to sleep and have their spread out breakfast. On one such holiday we decided to skip a sightseeing event and spent a full day at this beautiful hotel in Melbourne. We had a relaxed bath which otherwise is always done in a hurry. Watched a good movie.Had a siesta in the sprawling bedroom. Walked around the hotel, breathing in the exteriors with well kept gardens. What is your view on this?
