Average price of a hotel room in the UK on the rise

Average price of a hotel room in the UK on the rise... but surprisingly London and Edinburgh buck the trend 

The average price of a hotel room is down in both London and Edinburgh - while Blackpool is the cheapest tourist spot in the UK.

There was a four per cent rise last year on the average price of a room in the UK, but surprisingly the two capital cities were found to be cheaper than they were the previous year.

But despite the rise of attractions across the nation, traditional favourite Blackpool remains the cheapest place in Britain to get a bed for the night, the statistics showed.

London's average room rate is still the most expensive in the country, averaging £135 a night but that is down a fraction on the £136 a night recorded in 2014 said specialist site Hotels.com.

Blackpool, meanwhile, offers the best value for money charging an average of £64 a night, though that is actually up around five per cent year on year.
