When you search online for a cheap bed and breakfast or hotel, it’s easy to find directories or search engine listings with special offers. There are vouchers and deals galore, some offering free nights if you stay a week and others giving a free breakfast with the hotel room.
Despite all the hundreds of offers available, it’s very easy to pick poor accommodation. If you haven’t researched the business properly, or if there are no reviews which show the true state of the rooms, then it can be too late as you find out on arrival that things are not of a good standard.
In the last few decades the quality of budget hotels has increased dramatically, as the British follow the North American view-point of naming and shaming, or at least complaining, if the standards we receive are bad.
The elements we tend to use when judging hotel rooms and service is varied, and differ from person to person. The most common ones are the cleanliness of the bed, floor and shower or bath.
