Hotels in UK increase their rates 14% up in January 2011

News This January is definitely not the best time to stay in UK hotels as you will need to pay 14% more or will even face higher rates. This increase concerns hotels of all budget segments and is calculated comparing to January 2010. Such increase in hotels’ rates is by far more than in the rest of Europe, where the average increase estimates 2% and 29 from 50 top Europe cities even decrease their rates.

Hotels in Newcastle show the highest growth in rates – around 27%. Hotels in Liverpool and in Blackpool have increased their rates a little less – 23% and 21% accordingly. 20% more will need to pay visitors of hotels in Sheffield and London. The average cost of one night stay in London estimates £109. The only city, which hotel rates have gone down, is Bristol (minus 3% or £84 per night).

However, when compared to December 2010, we can see that the prices have gone down. This is true for the majority of British cities. For example, guests of accommodations in London will need to pay 14% less in January 2011 than in December 2010. Hotels in Leeds, Edinburg, Blackpool, and Glasgow also share this tendency.

And how about the rest of Europe? While hotels in Austria, Ireland and Denmark decrease their rates, accommodations in France, Italy and Switzerland go up. For example, your stay in Paris will cost you 5% more (£125 for a standard double room), and hotels in Cannes have increased their rates for 20% up to £98. Among favorable destinations due to rate decrease are also Barcelona and Brussels hotels.
