The One Behind the Magic

Today, we’re pulling back the curtain to reveal the powerhouse behind rooms4groups. Meet Maria Turley Allerton, our trailblazing Managing Director, a champion in the group booking space and a passionate globe-trotter.

Favourite holidays

& dream locations…

Maria’s love for travel is infectious, much like her energy and enthusiasm for rooms4groups. When asked about her favourite holiday destination, she says, “Anywhere! Every holiday or trip – from Sri Lanka to camping in the Yorkshire Dales is an adventure!” That’s the spirit of a true adventurer speaking!

Through her contagious enthusiasm, Maria inspires others to embark on their own journeys of discovery, to embrace the thrill of the unknown, and to find joy in the simple pleasures of exploration. In her presence, every moment becomes an adventure, every step a testament to the beauty of the world and the endless possibilities that lie just beyond the horizon.

Fold or roll?

The ultimate packing question!

When it comes to packing for her travels, Kirsten is a staunch folder. She swears by neat piles that keep her suitcase tidy and make locating items a breeze.

City Life

…with great cuisine

When given the choice between a tourist hub and a less-travelled place, Maria opts for the road less travelled. As for the age-old debate between city breaks and beach holidays, why choose? She’d rather have the best of both worlds with a city by the beach like Palma Majorca.

As someone who’s sampled cuisines from around the world, Maria can’t pick just one favourite. She’s torn between the fiery flavours of Thai food and the variety offered by Tapas. Yum!

If Maria were stranded on a deserted island, she wouldn’t need much. She’d bring her three boys along, proving that family really is the greatest adventure of all.

Top Travelling Tips!

and world of wisdom!

Maria’s favourite travel tip is simple yet profound. “Go, go, go! You will never regret a trip. Life is an adventure.” Wise words, indeed.

Maria may not be part of any team or association, but rooms4groups proudly sponsors Hamilton Panthers Under 9s Greens, a junior football team that Sam (Son) plays for and James (Husband) coaches. It’s clear that Maria’s passion extends beyond travel and into her community.

So there you have it! A peek into the life of our fearless leader, Maria Turley Allerton. Her love for travel, adventure, and family is at the heart of everything she does at rooms4groups. And it’s this passion that drives us to offer you the best group booking experience every time. Stay tuned for more team introductions and insider tips from the rooms4groups team!

Bucket List Goals

and experience group travel

For Maria, the world is full of wonders waiting to be explored. Her dream destination? The exotic island paradise of Zanzibar! And what’s on her must-see list? The ancient city of Petra and the mesmerising Northern Lights. Talk about bucket list goals!

Now, let’s talk travel hacks. Are you a folder or a roller when packing your suitcase? Maria swears by the rolling method. It seems our MD knows a thing or two about efficient packing! But she goes even further by suggesting the best hack of all is not actually to take a suitcase! Invest in a big holdall for under the seat, and you save big on baggage fees!
