For many people, the hotel is the part they want to spend the least amount of time. But in reality, that's where they spend the most amount of their time. That's because, every night, you'll be spending 8 hours sleeping in that bed, and then when you wake up, you'll most likely be having your continental breakfast in that bed, making love on that bed if you're on your honeymoon, and plenty of time simply relaxing in it.

That's why you want to make sure that the beds your hotel supplies is as comfy as possible and fit for purpose. The last thing you want on your short stay holiday is a bad back situation due to an uncomfortable bed, which will likely happen if you're not choosy.

When it comes to decide on the kind of bed you want to lay down on every night in your hotel, you should choose was that is at least queen size, although king size beds are obviously better. You should think of the type of mattress-go for a really thick memory foam mattress, as these provide superior back support like no other. The pillows should also be memory foam, as these are the most comfortable for your head, and don't forget the thickness or the fabric used in your duvet. It has to be one that feels as soft as silk or velvet, but keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.

These basics are not too much to ask. Any good hotel should be able to accommodate these basics. After that, what you look for, will obviously be how good the shower is, how big the TV screen, do they have free Wifi, etc. But the bare essential is always the best.

In Middlesbrough, you are spoiled for choice in this department. Especially because local manufacturers make the best bedroom furniture in the whole country. This is why you'll find that most Middlesbrough hotels automatically adhere to the highest standards when it comes to beds.

For instance, the mill towns of Bradford, West Yorkshire, and the surrounding towns of Heckmondwike, Dewsbury, Batley; al have world class makers of bed, and they bring the best divans, faux leather beds and kids beds you'll find anywhere. The hotels listed in this site work carefully with these manufacturers and make sure their guests have the best experience because of it.
