The UK is a great place to spend a vacation. It provides much in the way of history, culture and attractions. Therefore, it is of no surprise that it attracts so many visitors each year. Those visiting have a choice of accommodation options available to them, with these being the main ones…
Chain Hotels – Pretty much all of the big hotel chains (Hilton, Marriott, Holiday Inn, etc.) have establishments in the UK. You will find these types of hotels in most of the UK’s major cities. In fact, London even has multiple hotels from the same company. This is the most expensive type of accommodation but you get what you pay for. You can expect to be have to pay at least $100 per night.
Independent Hotels – These hotels range from 5 star palatial retreats to 1 star bargain basement accommodation. They can be found in most places in the UK, even small towns that are not particularly considered to be tourist attractions. You can really get a good deal booking into an independent hotel but you have no guarantees as to cleanliness or service as all of that is dependent on what the individual owner offers. Most of these hotels cost between $40 and $100+.
Hostels – These are a great option for people traveling in the UK on a budget, especially young people. You usually just get a bed in a shared room and very little more. They are uncommon outside of London, but if you look around you can find them in other major cities. The average cost is about $20 a night but prices vary.
Bed And Breakfasts – These establishments are something of a UK tradition and are very popular with UK citizens who travel within the country during their vacation. A typical bed and breakfast is basically a large house that rents out rooms to tourists. They are very personal and the owners normally do what they can do make you feel at home. As you can guess by the name, breakfast is nearly always included in the price, which ranges from $20 to $50.
You can easily book yourself a room at any place online, as even small establishments have websites these days. Those that do not have their own website normally at least put their details on other websites. Either way, finding somewhere suitable and making a booking can be done in less than half an hour.
