Some things aren't worth skimping on. Your holiday is a time to enjoy no matter the cost. If you're on holiday and you're hating the food, the lumpy bed and your room's location near a busy road, you'll want to escape to your home. That's no one's idea of a great break. You might not be able to afford a night at the Savoy or the Ritz in London, but your budget might stretch to five-star accommodation in some European countries, so don't discount this out of hand.
