Details currently being updated…..

U.K. – Recommended by member from W.A. Region –

Premier Inns – highly recommended. I actually wrote a short article on them which was published in the Sunday Times travel section. Excellent accommodation with good quality, good priced food in the attached pub-style restaurant that most of them have. Some as cheap as 29 pounds per night at various times. Also, I downloaded them as Points of Interest to my TomTom satnav so finding them was made very easy.
