All Hotel Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2020
thank you! (angel) (angel)
Hi I'm a health care assistant at our hospital and trying to apply for the free 1/2 nights break in Whitby but it's not allowing me, can I ask how you get this please. Thank you
Me too but they did say if they had to stay in they would and already have a suitcase prepped to do so. I respect anyone who has to work with covid19 patients and the NHS are putting their lives on the line every day to make the lives of those who have it more bearable if they can. It's a job that's difficult and it's draining both mentally and physically on them.
Calm down, it is my experiences I’ve had with some not all staf, they have been extremely rude to other care staff also, sorry if that offends you but it’s mine and others experiences of SOME staff.
A sweeping statement IMO. At pretty senseless and unnecessary comment at a time like this. Heavens forbid you need the NHS one day.
No worries, thank you anyway (lol)
Strange, I'm sure I had it under a 10% OFF Fast & Free banner with £4.49 (confused) long weekend...
Cheers mate, I was going to update the post but the code is not working for me!
£4.49 with code TDLY10 (y)
Love em all and so do the kids. Thanks for posting.
It seems everything is about NHS, nothing is in place for carers and unpaid volunteers.

Voted 🔥 Stay home 💛 Protect NHS 💙 Save lives ❤
Anyone know somewhere that's doing this for police officers?
Do you mean the ones working for agencies? If so I have little sympathy.
I'm aware of that. How about other countries which are already enjoying temperature and humidity comparable to UK summer? Or is the UK special somehow? Also, are you aware that there is more than 1 strain of COVID-19 already, and that we have never achieved herd immunity to any illnesses (such as influenza), without mass vaccination?
We are in the northern hemisphere, it is still winter.
So I guess the UV suppressive factor has worked in other countries so far then?
Unbelievable. I literally said 'no one knows what will happen'. Yes experts make predictions, but in the case of this novel virus, noone knows. I personally would go by the recommendations of the WHO, the experts in virus science, but because I live in the UK I am somewhat bound by what Boris Johnson and his behavioural scientists are guessing. Make your own decisions based on your own research, and I will do the same.
SARS2 is a highly infectious virus with a seemingly high basic reproduction number. It has evaded most control measures by virtue of it's long asymptomatic infectious period. That means it will peak quite quickly leaving a high proportion of the population immune. That is why epidemics always taper off. Add to that the UV suppressive effects of even a British summer and the chances of an epidemic being sustained into August September are virtually zero. THAT is a sensible prediction. Predicting it's spread in the short to medium term is more problematic which is why I, very specifically, mentioned only late summer. I don't recall even mentioning NHS capacity?
That's a shame you had that experience. I've not had one the last year, but didn't really experience anything like that. We did always take our own food, so never had that specific issue. 😔
That was the plan. We had them a few times several years ago when my in-laws and wifes friends were starting to visit after we got married. Didn't work out much more expensive then paying for the sights and we got to use them for the rest of the year. Eventually everyone had seen all the Merlin sights, so we didn't get them anymore. It was only 2 years ago when my daughter turned 3 we got them again, thinking she could enjoy the rides/etc at that age. I work for myself, my wife works part time and we don't live far from the parks so we went off peak. It was a massive disappointment. After several visits to Legoland we gave up. Most days it was rammed. On the days you got lucky and it was quiet they shut lots of things down. Meaning despite being significantly less people there were still long queues for F&B and the few decent rides that were open. Chessington was a bit better, but still a disappointment. Again they only opened everything and fully staffed when the park was full. Off-peak times lots of things were closed and they were short of staff. It took an hour to get bloody doughnuts for example. Only a couple of outlets were open. The staff broke one of the machines after queuing and sent everyone to the other shack. Can't comment on Thorpe park as not much for her age group there. The London attractions were ok, but have limited repeat value. Sea Life was probably the best in that respect as it provides some quiet time during a day out in London. I appreciate what you're saying and I would have agreed with you in the past as we made good use of the passes off peak. But after our experience 2 years ago it was a waste of time and money. The off-peak days there simply wasn't enough to make it worthwhile and you still ended up queuing :/ Peak we actually just walked out of Lego land after realising it would take 2 hours to even get a bite to eat. I said to my wife we'd have been better off forming an orderly queue in our garden for a few hours and setting fire to the money. At least we would have avoided the traffic home.
If you have the pass you can just keep going back. Doesn't matter if you only do a few things each visit. Just chill and have fun. I love the passes for that. Removes all the stresses and disappointments.
Shops and work are a necessity.
Does it have big screen TV in room like Premier inn?
Only a short trip away from Hanley :)
It's pretty close to Alton Towers.
yes ! near stoke & not a chip shop in sight (highfive)
Alsager? as a tourist destination? Really? Oh well, it takes all sorts... :) heat for the originality
Great price. Ideal for Escorts who want to do a UK tour.
Looks good!!! Let's get loads of non-refundable bookings secured before travel within the UK is restricted like it is in Italy!
selling rooms £20 and then cutting budget for team members, no more bottled water etc(confused)
Thanks, just booked Leeds Central in May. Far cheaper than anything booking.com was showing, used 10% off with voucher codes too 🔥
Thanks for posting; we have added this to the Highlights section (y)
Corona must be getting bad when Scotland is offering discounts.
Each night on Fri and Sat. Best to call as I did and book direct, so was 199 for Thurs, Fri and Sat in May with dinner the one night and b'fast each days.
Are Fri and Saturdays an extra £20 per night, or £20 for both nights?
So, is it better to call the hotel direct or take the voucher option?
Heat added and well needed. Thank you (y)
I purchased these, anyone else think they are way too high to sleep on? Not comfortable sleeping position, bad for the neck. Your head doesn't seem to sink into them?
These are awful. The filling stays in a lump and the cover is too big so it moves around on the outside of the lump. Got them for our bed a while back but they went straight in the spare room.
I got mine from Amazon today, must have ran out of stock
Yes for £13.50 the pair, or £29.99 for 4 (confused) Er, else buy 2 pairs (highfive) 1-4 weeks dispatch though @ Amazon.
Most are at least 5% though.
In which case such people have no reason to vote on the deal. I have no interest in whether they can afford this or not. What matters is that this is an excellent hotel and the price is very good.
My students see this hotel before they endure another dose of enthalpy calculations. It reminds them they are working towards glittering prizes and where I will be in September
Boooooooo, please don't post this. Not all of us are the 1%
This one was predictable. If you normally spend £335 on an entire holiday a 40% reduction on a £500+ room, even in an iconic hotel, is not going to look good. That said, if I was prone to despair I wouldn't have emerged from retirement to teach chemistry to bewildered sixth formers ( the salary from which just happens to be paying for a suite here in September and Madinat in December )..
£87 for 1 double room end of March Monday and Tuesday in Leeds. These prices are never on the days you want ;(
It seems it's over
Impressive effort.Heat added.
We’ve never been before so I’m clueless....children vary from toddler to teen but we have ‘sun vouchers’ for Friday early in July. we thought that we’d make to most of it whilst down there and visit somewere in the Saturday but I feel a bit off how busy it’s going to be 🙈 I might re think the Saturday and visit somewhere else
We've done it before - I know the feeling about being in the same hotel and not having to pack up. It's a trade off though and depends heavily if your family can get up early. Or if you're bothered about getting to the park early - and possibly depends on the ages of your kids. If you're coming down from Yorkshire, I'd stay at the Slough West Trading Estate hotel (closer to Legoland) and then on one day, make your way south to Chessington. That's if you insist on both nights in the same hotel. It's not that far - only about 30-40 mins extra plus traffic. But it all adds up. If you do it that way, you might want to book the Beefeater restaurant next door for the evening meal after Chessington and let the traffic die down before making the journey back to your Slough hotel. I would say that if you're going offpeak because you had kids under 5, then this is doable. If you have kids over 5 and you're sticking to weekends and school hoidays then I think its better to park yourself next to Chessington and getting in early. Also for Legoland, I'd consider the q-bot queue jumpting passes as Legoland is a nightmare and during weekends and holidays has at least double to quadrouple the visitors of other theme parks. Good luck! (y)
Because life is too short to panic.
So you're saying Thanos was on to something? :)
Well, we've all gotta die sometime! Maybe this is Mother Earth's way of having a clear out! Best way to combat global warming/climate change/climate emergency or whatever scare mongering phrase is flavour of the month is to limit the amount of people living on it! Maybe Mother Earth is sorting things out herself and trying to have a cull? ..and with up to upto 202,000 aircraft in the sky every day, it's no wonder it is reaching far and wide. That is an actual snapshot of all the aircraft on the ground and in the air right now (taken from FR24 website). ......and some people think turning a light off when we leave the room make a goddam difference!
I agree this is true for most cases but from what Ive heard, there are occasions of fit, healthy people dying from it with conditions they didn't even know they had. Why risk it?
Dont get me wrong, I'm not afraid of contracting it. But I am afraid of my holiday being cancelled or messed up (flights cancelled, hotel on lock down etc). Its the loss of finance which I'd be wary of. We all know what insurance companies can be like.
Will be a great summer for those without tin foil hats to take a last minute break.
Yes I’m going skegness
You will start seeing many more offers from the travel industry as Coronavirus spreads. Tourism industry is bracing itself for a really harsh year.
We are staying at Atlantis imperial club suite full board free soft drinks snacks water park etc £400 per night for 3
This is a decent hotel. Stayed here & had a great time.
I take four holidays a year and change my mind. A lot. TravelRepublic have the best change/ cancellation policy out there. £40 to cancel but £25 if you rebook something else. It takes the risk out of the hotel price dropping after you have booked. Destination2 cancellation charge is 70% of total invoice even if you cancel ten months in advance! I no longer use them.
You are not getting my point there is bringing things and there is going overboard to the point you want the biggest and tallest that’s just ridiculous!
We have booked Hilton jbr half board 850 for simmilar dates this was before the Coronavirus scare started. If you fly to Abu Dhabi you can save on flights we normally hire a car so made no difference but they have a coach service to get u to Dubai.
Sorry I couldn't find the information, but looks like the deal is now sold out.
Can you take dogs?
This is THE Lake District hiking hotel in one of the best seasons to experience it. Go out of the back door and you are in the Grisedale Valley with the path up to Helvellyn on your right. Go out of the front door, turn right then left across Goldrill Beck bridge and you are on the path to Place Fell. If you turn left out of the front door you are ten minutes walk from the Ullswater ferry terminal. Lakeland Rooms ( the £30 supplement ) look out onto Place Fell. Patterdale rooms look out onto grass covered rocks at the back of the hotel.
Booked. Nice mother's Day treat from the boy, hope she takes me!!
Pity there is no golf option
A great hotel with a great price... down the road from me, and it's very luxurious! :)
Thanks for the feedback :)
This is a nice hotel. I’ve enjoyed my stays there
The codes for March - May.
The Corona beer company have been running a viral marketing campaign. Keep an eye out, you’ll be able to catch it soon on public transport.
Searched London and Manchester for September it’s telling me no rooms?
Free stay in Italy or China!
Not for this price
What an odd comment, is one not allowed to provide poor reviews of a place based on one's experience? I actually live at the other end of Cornwall and have stayed in many places around it. I personally feel that if you come down and stay at this hotel, enjoy it for the views and the bucket list experience it is, but if you are expecting London standards or 4/5 star experience then the amount of poorly treated linoleum around the property and the dated and poor quality bathrooms and fittings will disappoint. I feel this hotel gives Lands End and Cornwall a bad image. If you are not bothered about the Lands End experience, then there are a lot of small hotels and B&Bs that will provide a much more quality experience of Cornwall for you within easy reach of Lands End.
Disgruntled ex employee by any chance.
You can, went there last year and just asked someone to take a photo, totally free just be kind and repay the favour (y)
Yep several celebrities have done this - Botham comes to mind.
Stayed here last year, not as bad as people make out. The rooms were a bit run down and 'musky' but honestly, at this price I dont know what people expect! Think of it like an older travel lodge. Nice enough staff, great location, you can uber to disney or universal really easily and you can walk around the corner to some great restaurants (the Japanese restaurant is fantastic). There is also a gaming bar beside the japanese, a hooters and a great brazilian steakhouse. I wouldn't go back but only because I would rather pay a bit more and stay somewhere nicer. If I didn't have the money though, I would happily go back here.
Tempted to try Orlando but the £1400 for a family park pass puts me off.
It doesnt seem to be spreading in the hot countries as much as say Italy or South Korea or here soon, so there is probably something in it.
not this year people i will stay home sorry too risky now
Still above 27deg At night, day time... like it states at the top 33 deg.... will got hotter from April onwards.
