Competition: WIN 1 of 10 Preferred Family Bears With Preferred Family Hotels!

We think one of the most exciting things about travel is creating memories for the whole family and experiencing new sights and cultures, rather than just ‘seeing’ them. The Preferred Family collection helps families do just that. They have more than 230 hotels and resorts in their Preferred Hotel Group Preferred Family collection, and they’ve hand-picked a small selection that they recommend to families who want their holidays to educate as well as rejuvenate!
