Whether it’s London, Edinburgh, Brighton or Bath, you can spend your money on fun things to do in the city rather than on a high-priced hotel. There are almost always bargain places to stay if you know where to find them. Here are ten in eight great cities.
Quiet private house bed and breakfast close to city centre yet in a lovely rural setting. Only 2 bedrooms - charming but not ideal if you are looking to go clubbing
London (South West)
Indian influences predominate in this cosy yet affordable hotel in West London, close to transport hubs. Smallish rooms but a great base at budget rates.
Prices on Easyjet principles - the earlier you book the less you pay. A stylish City hotel with attitude. The locality is the new trendy area of London, home of artists and designers.
Unusual guesthouse in an elegant living convent
Swansea, South and Mid Wales
Modernist annexe to Morgan's
Great value for money with town centre location, a cross between a youth hostel and a hotel. Sparse facilities, simple, bright decor, designer clothes, budget rates, no frills.
