Simple Tips for an Ultimate Relaxation While Travelling

True relaxation whilst travelling can be hard to achieve – but help is at hand. Below we have listed some simple ways to reduce stress on the go.

You might be living out of a suitcase, remotely working on the other side of the world and under pressure to deliver, or just unsure what day it is and anxious about getting a good night’s sleep that will help you be at your best.

If you’re looking for ways to reduce stress, it’s important to give yourself the best opportunity to relax, by maintaining mindfulness and health, and there are some great ways to do that at Apex Hotels. Here you will always receive a warm welcome that’s tailored to you.

For instance, our hotel rooms alone are full of amenities, allowing you to enjoy plush beds, luxurious Elemis toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, spacious walk-in showers, baths and complimentary Wi-Fi, not to mention large LCD TVs.

Furthermore, many of our hotels boast their own swimming pool and spa facilities, including City of London Hotel, Waterloo Place Hotel in Edinburgh, and Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa in Dundee – perfect for ultimate relaxation after a long day.

Of course, exercise can also help you to wind down, it relieves everyday stresses, and promotes a full night’s sleep – that’s where our on-site gym facilities can help. The likes of Temple Court Hotel in London, City of Bath Hotel, and Grassmarket Hotel in Edinburgh all offer great free-to-access equipment for a good workout 24 hours a day.
