Bank Holiday booking boom for York hotels

First published in Business news

YORK is one of the most popular destinations this Bank Holiday as more Britons get away to enjoy the last of the 2014 summer, according to Travelodge.

The large UK value hotel chain, which has 500 hotels in the UK and four in York, has reported a double digit increase in room bookings for this Bank Holiday compared to last year when temperatures hit 27C.

Its data shows that more Britons are taking a city break this Bank Holiday with the company reporting a spike in bookings at its York, London, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow hotels.

Despite the weather forecasts, Travelodge has also experienced a surge in bookings across its coastal hotels on the south coast and in the South West.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman said: “Get up and go is certainly the motto for this weekend as more Britons are making the most of the last summer Bank Holiday.

“Despite the lukewarm weather forecasts, we have experienced a record number of room bookings this week for the weekend.

“Interestingly we have seen a surge in city breaks being booked this August Bank Holiday compared to last year where coastal breaks were more popular.”

“Our data also shows more families are getting away this weekend as parents are taking advantage of the Bank Holiday.”

The only thing travelodge contributes to York is the stag and hen and drinking culture the hotel group seems to attract which is not really great for overseas tourists to see in our beautiful city. Like the race course all they are driven by is the need to take as much money as possible and then put these people out on the streets of York to the misery of other decent people.
