It has been so long that I cannot remember, but probably when I went to America about 5 years ago.

I stayed with a friend in New York, however travelled around to other cities and stayed in a few hotels.

Approx 3 or so years ago I went to Bali and stayed at The Padma in Seminyak...absolute heaven, loved the extensive tropical gardens and listening to the ocean only a short walk away

The last time I stayed in a hotel, I was in the Isle of Wight, almost fifteen years ago.
You need to get out more and have some fun, while you're young. :)

People have different ideaof fun. Holidays are mmy idea of hell.
That's really sad, Bryony.........
by donjo
Why? I don't understand why everyone thinks it is sad not to want to travel. What's wrong with being perfectly happy at home?
A holiday is your idea of hell sounds a little over the top.
by jonaja
Not to me. I hate travelling of all kinds, whether it be a train, plane, boat or car. In my opinion that hassle outweighs any joy from a holiday. I also get very stressed if I am prevent from doing my normal routine, I don't like being around people, and I don't like surprises/not knowing what to expect/where I'm going, etc, etc. To me that's hell.
The reason people are taken aback by someone NOT wanting to travel, is that to TRAVEL the world, so to speak, is what a huge number of people WANT to do!
It's nearly everyone's goal! Hence packed aircraft, ships & trains, all year around, mostly at the supposed 'cheaper' times!
Multiple 1000's of persons in all associated Travel Industries'. These wouldn't exist if everybody 'stayed home'!

Travel is THE best educator in all aspects of life.

To each their own, but personally, I'm very pleased I've travelled as much as I've fortunately been able to do! Many tales to tell!
by donjo
I know that it is what most people like to do, but just because they are in the majority, does not mean they should think it strange that a minority may not be interested in doing the same things.
Don't worry, Bryony, the Aussies love to travel about and distance is nothing to them. We Poms are a lot more reserved with our travel ideas. I go, sometimes I enjoy myself more than other times, and when I get home I feel like I want to stay home forever. When relatives come over here from England they totally freak out at spending more than ten minutes in the car getting anywhere. My other half, the large Aussie, did the opposite and was totally freaked out by how small England is and how close everything is :-)) Perception, perception.

It is interesting and surprising how culturally different our ideas about travel are. I wonder why we are so different.
In January this year we went to Bali and stayed in a hotel in Seminyak

We've just got home from a flying visit to Doncaster, my husband's home town in South Yorkshire. He had to be at a meeting early in the morning so we decided to go down the night before and stay in a hotel.
Before that we stayed in a hotel when we went down to the south of England for my father-in-law's funeral.
From memory,it was a fabulous hotel on the Gold Coast ,many many MANY moons ago!!!
Queensland....my son got a deal.
We rented an apartment. It was on the 15th floor.

Outstanding with wonderful lounge room, balcony that was huge and lovely kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms...It was such a treat that was 3 years ago, I had a great time.

We only stayed 2 nights, but was well worth it...We saw family, and then came back to Sydney.
Our last hotel stay was in Hobart over the Christmas holidays last year.
Sydney. Sofitel Wentworth Hotel.
Very convenient, as attending Concert at City Recital Hall. Short walk to & from. I know my way around there very well, as always stayed there on my work Courses, many times.

Beautiful Hotel, & I just love staying there at any time!
Would have been sometime last year, possibly early May when the train was delayed, getting back from the Clunes booktown.
As I live an hour out of the city by suburban train, it would have been too late by the time I got back.

I'll be staying at a Ballarat motel this year on the Friday to prevent this late Saturday night again.
We stayed at the Novotel Parramatta following a presentation by our financial adviser who also featured Ray Martin. Helpful front desk staff assisted us in finding one of many great places to dine nearby.
Fiji in February of this year.

London, England. Stayed at the Andaz hotel at the start of the year. A great location as well, not too far from Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel. My family has always opted for camping out and I think I always will too.
There's nothing like slipping between beautiful soft, clean sheets for a good night's sleep at anytime! It's Heavenly!

Especially if one has travelled on a long flight!

You should try it! You might even come to like it! Cheers!

An Eco Lodge Hotel on the Great Ocean Road last year.
Las Vegas
Meriton apartments in Sydney last Christmas.. love staying in hotels. Long showers, and foxtel and someone cleaning up after you and making your bed.. whats not to like.
Station Hotel Perth Scotland
About 2 years ago
I'm trying to remember, but it was so long ago.

I am going to stay in one in QLD this week as I go visit my just born niece :)
I was in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. That was almost a year ago.
YMCA in New York lol
Last year in September my husband and I stayed in a lovely hotel in Toowoomba. We were up there for the presentation and had no kids. Time before that was November 2007 and it was our wedding night.
I must admit I'm not a huge fan of travelling I do find it stressful with 4 kids. Maybe when they are older ill get around to travelling more
Newcastle, NSW with my husband, after a family opening at the Newcastle Art Gallery. And before that, 2 hotels in India, Bangalore, where we spent 3 weeks for a nephews wedding. And before that?
On our wedding anniversaries, for 5 years, in Wollongong, A.C.T, Darling Harbour, Manly, & the Sydney CBD. And before that? On 11 cruises.
We also travel to Melbourne a lot to visit our 2 daughters & 2 little grand-daughters, but we stay
with then when we go down there, a week at a time. In times past, i’ve stayed in hotels in New York, Bangkok, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Mexico. In ’68, my mum & I did a bus strip of Italy & stayed in a different hotel each night, with 1 night in Monaco, & Switzerland. All the other holidays, we’ve stayed with friends. I pack-packed around Bali with our 2 daughters, in ’95 for 3 weeks, & always stayed in home stays, for $3 a night each! It was 1 of the best holidays I’ve had.
We recently stayed 3 nights in a hotel in Singapore, then 2 'homestays in Bali.

Just finished nearly 4 weeks of staying in a variety of hotels in Germany & throughout Croatia. All of them were a variety of standards etc - some better than others. However, no matter how wonderful the trip & hotel room, it is always nice to get home to your own place & own bed.
Sydney (Darling Harbour) for work. I think it was the Ibis?
