Why UK Country Hotels?
Our website is an independent guide to the very best hotels in the countryside and by the sea – in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We feature over 2000 hotels which have been carefully selected to ensure they are reliable, quality properties. The majority of these are family-owned and managed where you can be assured of warm, personal welcome. Our website is designed to enable visitors to quickly and easily find the hotel they want and then to contact that hotel direct – by phone, email or by booking online.
Direct Contact With A Hotel Gets You The Best Prices!
Today the best rates and deals from UK hotels are achieved by booking DIRECT with a hotel. This is because Hoteliers have to pay booking agencies significant commissions (up to 25%) on reservations made though these agencies. If you book direct, however, the hotel pays no commission and is therefore in a very good position to offer very attractive rates. Hotels up and down the country are encouraging – and incentivising - people to book direct. By contacting the hotel you can also take advantage of special offers that the hotel might be offering. We strongly advise our visitors to ask for the very best deals when contacting a hotel. Don’t be afraid to negotiate, remember the hotel wants your direct business.
Direct contact with a hotel is also very useful in obtaining further information e.g. location of bedrooms, availability of vegetarian meals, facilities for families, pet-friendly, price/availability of single rooms, leisure activities, do they accept coach parties/hen parties/stag dos etc.
UK Country Hotels is not a booking agency, we do not charge commissions or booking fees, our role is to help you find the hotel of your choice than to get a great deal by booking direct.
We offer a concierge service – free of charge – to help people find and book a suitable hotel. Simply let us know your requirements and we will do our best to help. This is particularly useful for people not familiar with a particular region, and especially for those based overseas planning a trip to the UK.
