We’ve just booked the nearest Premier Inn to us for 5 nights, while TT is in dry dock next week. Total cost: £286.00, I kid ye not…
When booking online, they proudly announce on screen:
“Find rooms available from £29.00 per night!”
[FIND is the only appropriate word, but it still doesn’t happen]
Here’s the reality, a breakdown of the figures, and the cost for every night we’re there is different (?)

So work that out if you can because it just doesn’t make sense. OK, there’s business people they can rip off during the week, and they must know which days are more popular.
- But why is Tuesday so much more expensive? Free (unnecessary) spa treatment and an hour in the Jacuzzi perhaps, hmm… Still not worth it.
- And why do Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday have but £2.00 difference between them all. Why not round them UP to Wednesday’s rate of £57? I mean with deals like this, what difference does one pound either way make?
- And let’s not forget breakfast is extra, I have to pay £7.99 for a bowl of Special K…
Well I suppose it’s not quite as much as we’re paying for TT to stay in her own dry dock hotel, (with spa and skin treatment). Cheap change compared to that. But it’s the principle…
Just add it to the bill Jeeves…
