Let’s all help businesses during this difficult time. My stay at the Copthorne Tara hotel, a 4 star hotel in London, UK.
Just spent the night in the most amazing 4 star hotel, extremely comfortable bed, tea and coffee making facilities in the room, lovely bathroom/shower and all the modern comforts one would expect from a 4 star hotel in Central London.
Why? Because I can. Don’t get me wrong, I am not in a position to take loads of holiday’s or even stay in 4 star hotels usually at all. In fact, this hotel charges anywhere between £100+ to £400 per night for a room in high season. There is also a usual charge of £15 per person for breakfast.
How much did I pay for 2 guests, including breakfast? £41 on Booking.com!!! This includes free breakfast upgrade as I am a Genius member.
This is a 10th of their biggest tariff. Also the hotel was only 20% full too or empty even, (bearing in mind I did stay on a Monday) depending on which way you look at it. For me, I treated it as a break, a mini holiday to recharge and refresh my batteries.
Let’s not let the ‘new normal’ from putting us off from experiencing domestic tourism. The industry needs this to survive and pay the bills. Your country needs you. Thanks so much to the Copthorne Tara hotel for a lovely stay, even though I was paying very little for the experience!!!
