Hotel rates push cost of UK city breaks up

Hotel rates push cost of UK city breaks up
13 Aug 2013

Over the past year, the cost of staying in a hotel in a British city has rocketed by almost 30%.

Research conducted by TripAdvisor and published by the Telegraph revealed that, in some locations, the increase was even greater.

For example, a stay in a hotel in Birmingham would have set you back £62.69 per night in August 2012, whereas this year the nightly rate is £92.70 - a 47% rise.

However, the prices of London hotels have not climbed as sharply, with an average jump of just £4 per night recorded.

The research also singled out Nottingham as offering the best value for money for people taking city breaks in the UK, while noting that generally speaking it is cheaper to explore destinations in the north of the country than in the south.

Nottingham has a lot to offer people planning a staycation this summer, with the city home to attractions such as Nottingham Castle, the City of Caves and the Galleries of Justice Museum, while the legendary Sherwood Forest is just a short distance away.
