Re: Do you go full board, half board or self-catering?When going abroad we usually go half board where we have breakfast and an evening meal. We find we are usually out and about on trips during the day and we buy snacks when we need them. That way we are not tied to time.
Re: Do you go full board, half board or self-catering?It depends on so many other factors, I think. Generally we like to chose where we have our main meal, (which will be the evening meal usually) and to vary styles, so wouldn't rush to go half board where you eat in the same restaurant each night. Hotel & B&B has a lot to commend it, in that somebody else shops for and sets out your breakfast and your bed is made etc etc. But, if it is for more than a few days it can be nice to have the extra space and freedom you get with a self-catering place.
Re: Do you go full board, half board or self-catering?When I go abroad with my Sister & Brother-in-law we always go into apartment. We only have breakfast there and it leaves us the rest of the day to ourselves-not tied to times. We usually buy snack for dinner and go to different restaurants for our evening meals.

But my friend has booked us into a hotel for Crufts full board for two nights, £20.00 per dog and she's not saying how much it's costing for us yet, brace yourself!!! We stayed at this hotel before and we were treated like royalty, well the dogs were anyway!
