Types of accommodation available in Great Britain and the UK range from:
It is not just hotels that offer the most luxurious places to stay in Britain, many smaller establishments such as guest houses and self catering cottages can also offer a very high standard of accommodation here in the UK.
If you are looking for the real British experience, I would recommend looking at Bed & Breakfast or Guest Houses. There are literally thousands of them all over the UK, located near most towns and cities and all major tourist areas.
Motels are ideal if are looking for a simple room. You can pre-book family rooms at Travelodge and Premier Inns, which provide basic, clean accommodation which are usually situated close to motorway service areas, major roads and cities.
Another choice could be Holiday Inn's they are usually within close range of major roads, large town and cities, offering better quality of accommodation, and often provide special weekend deals.
Budget youth hostel accommodation is also available, and its not just for students, some hostels are set in beautiful settings, great for those looking for walking holidays and wishing to spend longer in our great country. Check the Youth Hostel Association website site for family rooms and single sex shared rooms. YHA
