Travelling for work: Our tips
Business travel at the Kingsmills
The Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness is popular with business travellers. Our convenient location, just twenty minutes from the airport and a short drive from the city centre, makes us the ideal choice for those travelling with work. Whether you’re attending a business event in the city, or at our own events venue in the hotel, we have everything you need for a comfortable stay; Warm, luxurious hotel rooms with space for work and relaxation, a variety of dining options and an extensive leisure club and spa on site. It’s important to take care of yourself while working away, so here are a few tips for those staying with us on business.
Make yourself at home
If you’re staying for a few nights, it can feel disruptive to live out of a suitcase. It’s so much nicer to unpack your items into the wardrobe and drawers. This is such a quick and simple thing to do, but it makes all the difference. At the Kingsmills, we offer plenty of storage space for your belongings, so go ahead and make yourself at home!
Stay fit and active
After a long day of travelling, it’s good to let off some steam. Head down to the swimming pool and gym, or go for a walk in the hotel gardens. It doesn’t matter how you choose to exercise, the main thing is to keep moving and drink plenty of water too. Relaxation is also important, so enjoy the steam room, sauna and perhaps a spa treatment too.
It can be difficult when you’re on the go, but try not to rely on unhealthy snacks. Take some time out to eat well during your business trip. Reserve a table in our restaurant or order room service. We serve fresh, seasonal dishes that will refuel and energise you for the tasks ahead. Furthermore, don’t skip breakfast the next morning, whether it’s a continental selection or a full Highland breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day and will keep you going for longer.
Get plenty of sleep
Sleep is vital for wellness, so get plenty of it. Relax in your room and avoid screens just before bedtime. Then, when you’re ready, sink into your soft, hotel bed for a peaceful night.
Explore your surroundings
It seems like such a shame to visit this beautiful part of Scotland without getting the time to explore! If you can spare some time, try to get a feel for your surroundings. That could be anything from a scenic walk on your lunch break to an evening tour or activity.
If your company is sending you here for a Monday meeting, it might even be worth asking them if you can travel up a few days earlier. Then you can spend the weekend enjoying some leisure time beforehand. If you’re booked into the Kingsmills Hotel through work, simply contact us directly to add on a night or two. You can book and pay for this part of your stay separately, and we will ensure you don’t have to move rooms! There is so much to do on our doorstep, you’ll be so glad you stayed for longer.
